One of the most beloved films in the Walt Disney Studios’ canon, Mary Poppins is getting a full HD transfer and coming to Blu-ray on December 10, 2013. The release commemorates the 50th anniversary of the film’s theatrical release (the film had its world premiere in 1964 at Grauman’s Chinese Theater in Hollywood).

The Blu-ray release of the film also coincides with the theatrical release of Saving Mr. Banks, Disney’s upcoming live-action film which tells the story of how Walt Disney and his team negotiated with Mary Poppins’ author P.L. Travers in getting the book made into the classic Disney film.

Saving Mr. Banks opens in U.S. theaters in limited release on December 13, 2013 and in wide release on December 20, 2013.
