Myhre talks about the reasoning behind wanting to make the umbrella come to life: “We’ve got three kids and we all felt like the kids [were] going to have a much better time talking to a parrot head umbrella that can actually talk to them. There’s one that’s been made that is completely auto-animatronic ... I guess you could say it's a little nod to the original Mary Poppins, but this one is very sophisticated.” How cool is that?!

In both the West End and Broadway versions of the stage musical, the Mary Poppins character is more deliberately mysterious than in the movie version.

If you’re curious about the magic behind the animated scenes, let it be known that no actual green screens were used in filming. Instead, giant props were built first and then later painted green. “[Director Rob Marshall] wanted a stage design that was a reflection of the songs and covers, so there are giant books and all sorts of fantastic things that we actually built [and] painted green to let [the cast] interact in that world [and] to be able to pull them out into the animation,” Myhre explains. In The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part, a character named Larry Poppins (voiced by Jorma Taccone) is Mary Poppins' male counterpart.
