As most of you may be aware, Disney is planning a remake of the classic 1964 film "Mary Poppins" to be directed by Rob Marshall. I wasn't too sure it would work at first but then I found out that it takes place 20 years after the events of the first film and that Rob Marshall and Disney would be working closely with the estate of P.L. Travers to put more focus on her later adventures with the Banks family. So here is my dream cast for the live-action remake/sequel....
Anne Hathaway as Mary Poppins
I can't think of anyone more perfect for the role! Plus she worked with the original film Mary, Julie Andrews on "The Princess Diaries" 1 and 2.
Ewan McGregor as Bert
Again can't think of anyone else more perfect. Thanks to his performances in "Moulin Rouge" and the upcoming remake of "Beauty and the Beast" he'll do well.
Colin Firth as George Banks
Nicole Kidman as Winifred Banks
Sarah Bolger as Jane Banks
Daniel Radcliffe as Michael Banks
So, what do you think of my cast and what casting decisions do you have?
