There are some movies that are so completely enchanting that their appeal spans generations and for me, Mary Poppins has always been one of those movies. I’ve seen it dozens of times over the years and have introduced my boys to the movie I loved as a child as well. Now, Mary Poppins is available in a very special 50th Anniversary Edition Blu-ray Combo Pack and I couldn’t wait to sit down and watch it with my boys once more. Here’s a brief synopsis:
Releasing from the Disney Vault in celebration of its 50th Anniversary, creative visionary Walt Disney’s classic shines for the first time on Blu-ray. Starring Dick Van Dyke and Julie Andrews in her Academy-Award winning role, and featuring iconic toe-tapping songs including “A Spoonful of Sugar” and “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious,” Mary Poppins is a movie experience your family will enjoy again and again. An all-new digital restoration adds even more magic – helping bring the award-winning songs and amazing picture to life like never before.
Mary Poppins is not a new movie to me. In fact, I think I may just know every word to every song in the movie. But that hasn’t taken away its magic for me one bit, and my boys love it just as much. The digital restoration made the film brighter and more lifelike than ever before, while still maintaining the classic charm of the movie that makes it so wonderful.
My boys laughed along with the movie just like they did the first time they watched it. Their personal favourite moment is when the items in the playroom get a little overexcited when putting themselves away during A Spoonful of Sugar. The moment always has Zackary and Benjamin rolling on the floor with laughter!
Mary Poppins: 50th Anniversary Edition is available now so don’t miss out on your chance to own this classic treasure and introduce your children to its magic. Pick up a copy today and enjoy a little break from reality with a movie that children of all ages have loved for half a century!
