When information about Hollywood producers’ plans to shoot a new version became public in 2016 Mary Poppins, most fans of the iconic 1964 musical were inconsolable. Despite the skeptical approach, over time admirers of the famous nanny became more and more convinced of the “refreshed” version of the film: it turned out that the picture will be a continuation, not a remake of the famous classic, and the main roles will be played by movie stars such as Meryl Streep, Colin Firth if Emily Blunt. Shortly after the shooting for production finished, Blunt gave an interview in which she expressed concern that she would not be able to live up to the role she played flawlessly Julie Andrews almost 60 years earlier.
When I was a child, I found the idea of this magical person changing people’s lives extraordinary and I liked it very much – she confessed Emily. While preparing for the role, I watched the original movie for about 15 minutes, then I tried to recreate what Julie Andrews had done. Of course, with room for your vision. Julie is unbeatable, unbelievable, and no one will play the role like her. So all that’s left for me to do is come up with a different creation that is a bit more sour, strange and proud than in the books. So we went in that direction.
On Thursday in Los Angeles the world premiere of the long-awaited production took place, with the biggest star of the evening, i.e. Blunt in person. For this occasion, the British decided to wear a spectacular white dress Yanina Coutureto which she chose the shoes Loriblu, purse Judith Leiber and jewelry design Stephen Webster. The 35-year-old willingly posed on the red carpet next to her beloved, John Krasinskiwho opted for an elegant look consisting of a burgundy suit and a patterned shirt. As reported by the media from overseas, Emily played a role Mary Poppins “with flying colors”, and American critics are already announcing a shower of awards and nominations for An Oscar for a popular actress.
