Today in Disney World, Several New Star Wars Themed additions headed to Disney's Hollywood Studios, Emily Blunt is in talks to star in Disney's sequel to Mary Poppins and the Walt Disney Company cutting costs at the worst time possible, all in today's Disney News
Emily Blunt is in talks to star in Disney’s sequel to “Mary Poppins” with Rob Marshall set to direct.
John DeLuca and Marc Platt will serve as producers on the pic. Sources say Blunt has always been the favorite since all four worked together on “Into the Woods.” With Disney looking to get the film into production soon, the studio recently met with the actress to discuss the idea of playing the magical nanny.
Several new Star Wars-themed additions are headed to Disney's Hollywood Studios this spring, including a brand-new stage show and fireworks celebration.
According to Disney Parks Blog, the stage show, dubbed "Star Wars: A Galaxy Far, Far Away," will debut on April 4 and "play out iconic moments from the film saga on Center Stage" with a number of iconic characters, including Darth Vader, Darth Maul,
Chewbacca and Kylo Ren.

A company born out of ink and paint is going a little thinner on the paint. Disney (NYSE:DIS) laid off 100 to 140 of its Disney World resort painters, a union rep is telling the Orlando Sentinel.
