No matter what your stance on remakes, Hollywood is officially recycling every beloved movie ever, so you're probably going to be seeing plenty of them, whether you want to or not. Now, an iconic musical is getting a reboot: a new Mary Poppins movie is headed our way, which means that a whole new generation will finally learning the meaning (if not the proper spelling) of "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious."

But if you thought you were going to see the same song and dance (literally), that's not exactly what's going down with the new Mary Poppins film. According to The Hollywood Reporter, this won't be your standard remake: in fact, the movie is actually more of a sequel. The story will be set 20 years after the original movie, which starred Julie Andrews in the titular role, and feature brand-new tunes. The original musical will borrow from the original Mary Poppins stories from author P.L. Travers, who was the subject of the (sob-inducing) film Saving Mr. Banks.

So far there's no word on who might play the magical nanny (or if she'll still look young despite the 20 year time jump) but I'm hoping that Frozen's Kristen Bell scores the titular part. She's peppy, has a killer voice, and already played the flying babysitter in a Funny or Die video. She could totally knock this role out of the park.
