Subtitles / Captions
Becoming Mr. Sherman (HD, 14 minutes): Go behind-the-scenes of director John Lee Hancock's Saving Mr. Banks -- which stars Tom Hanks as Walt Disney and Emma Thompson as "Mary Poppins" author P. L. Travers -- as actor Jason Schwartzman sits down with Mary Poppins' Richard M. Sherman to discuss the classic film's music and lyrics. Sherman in turn shares his memories of Poppins' troubled pre-production and discusses Schwartzman's portrayal of him in Hancock's film.
Mary-Oke (HD, Dolby Digital stereo, 8 minutes): Sing along with "A Spoonful of Sugar," "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious," "Step in Time" and "Chim Chim Cher-ee" with this karaoke-style feature.
Classic DVD Bonus Features: The Blu-ray edition of Mary Poppins also includes most every previously released bit of supplemental content from past releases. Extras include:
Audio Commentary: Composers/lyricists Richard and Robert Sherman and actors Julie Andrews (Mary Poppins), Dick Van Dyke (Bert/Mr. Dawes Sr.) and Karen Dotrice (Jane Banks) reminisce about the film and its production, commenting on the challenges they faced, the fun they had and the magic they helped make. The only downside is that all five participants aren't together in the same room; Andrews and Van Dyke cozy up, but Dotrice and Richard Sherman are paired up and recorded separately, while Robert Sherman is by his lonesome. It's only a small complaint, though. The carefully compiled track is entertaining and engaging no matter who's speaking, and Andrews and Van Dyke are an absolute joy to listen to.
Disney on Broadway (SD, 55 minutes): Next up is a 48-minute documentary -- "Mary Poppins From Page to Stage," an overview of the film's Broadway adaptation with producer/President Disney Theatrical Productions Thomas Schumacher and performers Ashley Brown (Mary Poppins) and Gavin Lee (Bert) -- and a 7-minute featurette, "Step in Time," with Broadway composer George Stiles.
Backstage Disney (SD, 113 minutes): Eight additional spoonfuls of supplemental sugar are also available: 51-minute documentary "The Making of Mary Poppins," vintage red carpet featurettes "The Gala World Premiere" and "The Gala World Premiere Party," kid-friendly special effects mini-doc "Movie Magic," two "Deconstruction of a Scene" featurettes ("Jolly Holiday" and "Step in Time"), a "Dick Van Dyke Make-Up Test" and a "Publicity" roundup with original trailers, re-issue trailers and TV spots.
Music & More (HD/SD, 52 minutes): Four music-themed extras: 17-minute retrospective "A Magical Musical Reunion Featuring Julie Andrews, Dick Van Dyke and Richard Sherman" (SD), deleted song "Chimpanzoo" (SD), a "Disney Song Selection" suite (HD, DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1), and a "Movie Sing-Along" track.
The Cat that Looked at a King (SD, 10 minutes): In this 2004 live-action/animated short, Andrews leads two children into a chalk drawing and tells them the story of a talking cat, a knowledge-obsessed king and the arrogant ruler's neglected queen.
