As a part of the Disney live-action portion of the D23 Expo, we got to learn a little bit more about Mary Poppins Returns. So far, the mass public has seen only promotional images, so everyone was on edge to see some real footage, which would be a first for everyone in attendance. The film is considered a sequel to the original, with Emily Blunt now playing the titular character. In it, we will see her help the Banks family in their desperate time of need once more. Director Rob Marshall joined Blunt on the stage to talk about the film and share the very first footage.

P.L. Travers may not have been a fan of her Marry Poppins novels being turned into a film, but Disney’s Mary Poppins has left behind a legacy that makes the adaptation one of the greatest Disney films of all time. It has been 53 years since the release of the musical, and now, in a day and age where sequels are the norm, Disney is following up Mary Poppins with Mary Poppins Returns, starring Emily Blunt as the title character.

It will be a while before we see anything substantial, but the film does come out this year, leaving a few wondering when we will see anything. Well, after the studio dropped that teaser photo a few months back, three new images have popped online. Check it out below.

Lin-Manuel Miranda Narrates ‘Drunk History’ Hamilton Episode (Clip)
Empress Eve   |  

Drunk History Narrator Lin-Manuel Miranda

The Tony-winning Broadway musical Hamilton is a smash hit that recently set the record for most money grossed in a week on Broadway ($3.3 million for 8 performances in one week). The show’s creator Lin-Manuel Miranda has become synonymous with Alexander Hamilton since singlehandedly bringing the American political figure to the forefront of pop culture. So, you can imagine that having Miranda narrate an Alexander Hamilton-themed episode of Drunk History is a pretty big deal.

Hosted by Derek Waters, Episode 4.10 “Hamilton” of the Comedy Central show airs today, November 29 at 10:30/9:30c, and sees Miranda quite drunkenly and humorously providing a brief history of the Founding Father’s personal and political life, and his first and last meetings with Aaron Burr.

Check out a clip from the episode here below.

Lin-Manuel Miranda On Creating The Music For ‘Moana’ and Finding Dwayne Johnson’s Vocal Range
eelyajekiM   |  

Moana

Music was a huge part of making Moana great, and none of that would have been accomplished without the collaboration of Grammy-award winner Opetaia Foa’i, Disney alum Mark Mancina, and (soon to be) EGOT Lin-Manuel Miranda. Each one of them brought in their own personalities to the film, with Foa’i bringing the music of the Polynesian culture, Mancina with his Disney experience, and Miranda, who really needs no reference unless you haven’t heard of the Tony Award-winning Hamilton. The songs are a celebration of culture and finding one’s identity, and they are so much fun that they don’t feel overly preachy.

We were recently invited to sit down with our fellow journalists to talk to Miranda and Foa’i about the music of Disney Moana, their inspiration, working together, and discovering Dwayne Johnson’s vocal range. Check out all of that below.
