I am off on a practically perfect adventure with Disney later this week for the Mary Poppins Returns press junket and red carpet premiere. I’ll be sharing the fun on social media while I’m there and then even more on the blog starting next week!
Mary Poppins Returns Press Junket
The trip kicks off with a screening of Mary Poppins at the official ‘Academy’ theater. I’ve never been to the Samuel Goldwyn Theater, so I can’t wait to see that in person. Following the movie, we will attend a full audience Mary Poppins Returns Q+A with the cast and filmmakers.
The next day we will attend the press junket for Mary Poppins Returns with full interviews with some of the cast and crew. Which cast members you ask? EEEEK I am so excited!! Check out our scheduled interview list below:
- Emily Blunt (“Mary Poppins”)
- Lin-Manuel Miranda (“Jack”)
- Director Rob Marshall
- Ben Whishaw (“Michael Banks”) & Emily Mortimer (“Jane Banks”)
- Pixie Davies (“Anabel Banks”) & Joel Dawson (“Georgie Banks”)
- Songwriters Marc Shaiman & Scott Wittman
Mary Poppins Returns Red Carpet Premiere
Later that day we will attend the red carpet premiere of Mary Poppins Returns followed by the premiere party! I can’t wait to see all the fun Disney has prepared for the party, I am sure it will be practically perfect.
