More than 50 years after the beloved Disney film premiered, everyone’s favorite nanny will once again come alive on the big screen.

The movie will not be a remake of the 1964 "Mary Poppins," according to Entertainment Weekly, but will take place 20 years after the original in Depression-era London.

Unlike the original, which mainly used the first installment of P.L Travers’ eight-book series, the new live-action musical will be based on the rest of the children author’s 1934-1988 book series.


Rob Marshall will direct the Disney film, with Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman (“Hairspray,” “Smash”) set to compose original songs and a new score, and David Magee (“Finding Neverland,” “Life of Pi”) will write the screenplay, Entertainment Weekly reported.
