Filming begins on "Mary Poppins Returns"

Several sources have confirmed that filming has begun in Surrey, England on Rob Marshall's Mary Poppins Returns.  There had been some previous speculation that Meryl may have done her filming already, but I wonder if with the BAFTA ceremony this weekend, she'll be attending that and hanging around to complete her shooting.  In the Variety article I've linked above there's a nice summary of a few plot details, in addition to revealing some new cast members.

We still don't have a great idea of the extent of Meryl's role, but as I've mentioned before, I imagine it's rather small.  I picture something similar to her role in Lemony Snicket's.  Still hard to believe that this won't be released for almost two more years.  Can there really be that many special effects in a film like this?  Maybe they want to make the flying scenes look super realistic.  Who knows.

I'll post my BAFTA predictions tomorrow.
