Take this news with a grain of salt, or maybe a spoonful of sugar, to help it go down.
If they sign on the dotted line, the iconic actors would join an already impressive cast. Late last month, Variety reported 19-time Academy Award nominee Meryl Streep joined the cast as Topsy, Mary Poppin's cousin. Emily Blunt is set to star as the titular character.
The new film will take place in Depression-era London, with Mary Poppins visiting now-grown Jane and Michael Banks, along with Michael's three children.
It's no surprise Disney chose to revive the film. The original was a smash hit in 1964 and won five Academy Awards, including Best Actress for Julie Andrews.
