Disney casts Emily Blunt in lead in Mary Poppins sequel


Back in September, we let all our readers that love strange bag ladies who hand out drugs to kids know that Disney had heard their pleas and decided to release a 2nd “Marry Poppins.” (I mean, seriously, she’s been Poppin’ pills since 1934!)

Well now they’ve cast Emily Blunt as Pablo Escobar with a magic umbrella the titular Mary Poppins. Be prepared to go on some zany, spoonful-of-sugar induced trips, kids.

Look for the story to draw from Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas as well as The Necronimicon the seven other Marry Poppins books written by P.L. Travers from 1934 to 1988.

What I’m super, super stoked about though, is the inevitable crossover franchise between Mary Poppins and Nanny McPhee, in a battle royal to the death! (Think “Aliens vs Predators”, but with magic nannies, or Highlander, there can be only one, yada! Same difference.)
