Director Rob Marshall talks Mary Poppins Returns movie sequel

Rob Marshall, director of the new Disney Mary Poppins Returns film has said that work on a brand new sequel was in "early stages" in an interview with The Sun, adding "I will say right now that there were eight books, so there's a lot of great material still to mine. That's what we worked from, those incredible eight books of PL Travers." Marshall was talking at the American Airlines, BBC America and Jaguar Land Rover BAFTA Tea Party when he made the remarks.

The hit 2018 film, which stars Emily Blunt and Lin-Manuel Miranda, was released on 21st  December, and has to date grossed $260,000,000 worldwide.
