⋄ Dame Julie Andrews, who portrayed the title character in Mary Poppins (1964), endorsed the casting of Emily Blunt as her successor, calling it a “wonderful” casting decision. Blunt said it was “lovely” to receive Andrews’ stamp of approval, and cried tears of joy when she found out about Andrews’ reaction.
⋄ Emily Blunt dove into P.L. Travers’ books, and found out that the character is remarkably different from Walt Disney’s vision and Dame Julie Andrews’ characterization in Mary Poppins (1964), so Blunt’s interpretation is closer to the books.
⋄ Emily Blunt doesn’t appear on-screen until twenty minutes into the movie.
⋄ Like Julie Andrews Emily Blunt wore a wig in this film since her hair is Blonde and not Brunette.

Character’s Quotes

Close your mouth, please, Michael, we are still not a codfish.
Nothing’s gone forever, only out of place.
Really? How incredibly rude! One never discusses a woman’s age, Michael. Would have hoped I taught you better.
Nothing. Such a useful word, isn’t it? It can mean anything and everything.
When you change the view from where you stood, the things you view will change for good.
When the world turns upside down, the best thing to do is turn right along with it.
We’re on the brink of adventure, children. Don’t spoil it with too many questions.
Spit spot!
If you two are going to keep up all of this whispering, I’d like you to practice doing so as loudly as possible. It will still be bad manners, but at least then we’ll all be in on the secret.
You have guests, cousin. You might at least greet them at the door.
