Disney is currently working on a “new original live-action musical film” centered around the story of Mary Poppins. The film would take place 20 years after the original and use the stories found in the rest of Mary Poppins’ author P.L. Travers’ book series. The first book was used for the original movie; there are seven others that tell more about Mary’s life with the Banks family.

Director Rob Marshall and producers John DeLuca and Marc Platt will come back together after bringing Into the Woods to the screen. David Magee (Finding Neverland, Life of Pi) will write the screenplay and Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman (Hairspray) will develop original songs and score.

Leah grew up in a little farming town in Illinois, right on the Mississippi River. Her Chicago-born husband, David, left the city for her, and they're now raising their three children (Jacob, Jonah and Lydia) just 12 miles from her hometown. As the Senior Editor of the DIS (wdwinfo.com), Leah spends a lot of time writing about, reading about, and discussing Disney. So, it should come as no surprise that one of her family's favorite ways to spend time is going to Walt Disney World and traveling on Disney Cruise Line. She also enjoys shopping, watching movies with her husband and doing crafts with and for her kids.
