Is anyone else excited about this movie? I haven’t been to the theater in ages and saw the preview for the first time last night and was intrigued. The cast is pretty phenomenal. I think it’s really interesting that Disney is showing how difficult it was to persuade Traverse to give them rights to her story.
However, spoiler alert I’ve read that at the end of the movie, Traverse is happy with the decision to give Disney the rights to the film, although in real life, she cried through the entire premier, thinking Julie Andrews too pretty to play Mary Poppins and the animated scenes absolutely horrifying (though she did get $100,000 cut from the film… a lot of money back then!).
