Mary Poppins Returns…again?
It would appear, at least according to director Rob Marshall per The Sun, that another entry in the Disney Mary Poppins franchise is already in the early stages of development.
Speaking during the annual BAFTA nominees tea party (how appropriate), Marshall said:
“It is early stages, but I will say right now that there were eight books, so there’s a lot of great material still to mine. That’s what we worked from, those incredible eight books of P.L. Travers. So, you know…”
He continued, alluding to a possible James Bond and Star Wars indefinite continuation to the franchise:
“Listen, how many Star Wars films have there been, you know what I mean? Or James Bond films. If there’s a great character and story to tell, why not?”
Mary Poppins Returns is still in theaters now.
