I just (finally) watched Saving Mr. Banks
; the movie about the authoress behind the beloved Disney classic, Mary Poppins
. I sat there with my family and cried my little eyes out (which actually isn't all that uncommon) as I watched the tale of Mary Poppins unfold in a way that I never expected.
I loved Mary Poppins
and I loved Saving Mr. Banks
Now that brings us to a new rumor that has blown in from the east...a new film by Tim Burton that will tell a likely twisted tale of Mary Poppins, simply titled Poppins
According to Doctor Disney
, rumors of this project have been swirling since 2009; with Helena Bonham Carter and Johnny Depp taking the lead roles in the film. Now while this sounds incredible--because let's be honest, Burton, Carter, and Depp are a trio of perfection when it comes to films of this nature--these are, in fact, still rumors. Just brought back to life again thanks to a fan made poster for the alleged film.
Perusing Tim Burton's Facebook page, I was not able to locate the post that spawned all the talk...and upon checking the IMDB pages of the actors and director, no such project is listed. You would think there would be something, if the November 2016 release date has an validity.
Though this rumor is practically perfect in every way...it is in fact only practically perfect in all the ways except the one that counts: the part where it's actually real.
I have my fingers crossed that the winds will change once again and the rumors will gain some weight. Until then, friends, don't get your hopes up.
Instead, go fly a kite...and I mean that with the friendliest intentions.
