The Three CommentEARS
Episode 12: Mary Poppins

Welcome back to From Screen to Theme's monthly series: The Three CommentEARS! As usual, your commentators include Gamer Tuesday writer Pedro Hernandez, Saturday Matinee writer Albert Gutierrez, and Once Upon A Recap writer Kelvin Cede�o. Joining us for this commentary is special guest commentator Aaron Wallace, author of The Thinking Fan's Guide to Walt Disney World: Magic Kingdom. For this episode, we take a look at the 1964 landmark film Mary Poppins. The film holds a special connection for all of us, as we trace its production, make comparisons to both the original P.L. Travers books and stage musical, and look into how it impacted our lives over the years. In addition, we examine some of the film's spiritual themes, its high-ranking reputation within the Disney company, the various "Disney Achievements" represented within the film, several connections to 2013's Saving Mr. Banks and Travers herself, and the film's impact on all viewers since its release.
