Mary Poppins Returns
Here is a little ‘Mary Poppins Magic’ ….I created with watercolour in an early morning painting session today .When I passed through Maryborough late last year Mary Poppins had clearly left her indelible magical mark on the town and the good folks of Maryborough are obviously happy to bask in the reflected glory of the author P J Travers and her globally loved and acclaimed character Mary Poppins and the tourist dollars she rakes in
The old bank building that was the birthplace of PJ Travers has been converted to a Mary Poppins museum There is a fabulous $50 ,000 of the redoubtable Mary Poppins complete with her magical carpet bag and even traffic lights in the main street are adorned with Poppins images .The green light shows an image of Mary Poppins taking flight with her umbrella …very cute .
I had the pleasure of sitting and sketching in the very park where JP Travers would have been pushed in her perambulator as a toddler ..
The new Disney Mary Poppins movie’ Mary Poppins Returns’ was for me every bit as magical as the original which inspired and lit up my childhood years with visions of imaginative and fantastical possibilities and this later version was a timely reminder for me to lighten up and remember the lighter more fun and magical side of life and remember the possibilites of being a magical manifestor
Mary Poppins Returns is a glorious film which did what it could to pay homage to its timeless classic predecessor and does in my estimation very much succeed in bringing the Poppins magic alive for this generation of youngsters especially considering the gamut of special effects technical gung pow wizardry movies this movie is competing with for kids attention and allegiance . The song and dance routines alone are wonderful and well worth the price of the ticket ………
