With the popularity of Into the Woods and other stage musicals, it is no surprise that Disney wants to do a Mary Poppins reboot with Rob Marshall as the director, according to Variety.
The movie musical will be enlisting John DeLuca and Marc Platt from Into the Woods to serve as producers for the film.
The film will be set in London, 20 years after the original, and will include storylines from the P.L. Travers’ children’s books, focusing on the misadventures of the Banks family and their magical nanny.
The original film, starring Julie Andrews, is of course a classic as well as a box office success, raking in more than $100 million and earning five Oscars.
Marshall has directed several movie musicals including Annie, Chicago, Nine and most recently, Into the Woods, which grossed more than $200 million worldwide.
Disney has recently released live-action versions of its most beloved animated films such as Alice in Wonderland and Cinderella.
Disney will be releasing a live-action version of Beauty and the Beast in 2017 starring Emma Watson and Luke Evans.
