Julie Andrews definitely won’t appear in ‘Mary Poppins Returns’


The verdict is in: don’t expect to see Julie Andrews in Mary Poppins Returns

The actress and singer who first played the iconic role of the offbeat British nanny won’t do a cameo in the 2018 sequel, the film’s director confirmed to Entertainment Weekly

Even if fans are disappointed, Andrews chose not to appear in the new movie out of respect for Emily Blunt, who will play Mary Poppins this time around. 

“Julie was incredibly gracious, and we talked about it in a very general way but she made it clear right up front. She said, ‘This is Emily’s show, and I really want it to be Emily’s show. I don’t want it to be, ‘Oh, here comes that Mary Poppins.’ I don’t want that. I really want her to take this and run with it, because she will be brilliant,'” director Rob Marshall said.  Read more…

This big city in the South wants to use 100% clean energy by 2035


Atlanta is joining the growing ranks of U.S. cities that want to get 100 percent clean energy.

Lawmakers in Georgia’s capital city approved a measure to get all of Atlanta’s electricity supplies from renewable sources, including wind and solar power, by 2035. The resolution commits city officials to developing a plan to make that happen.

“We know that moving to clean energy will create good jobs, clean up our air and water, and lower our residents’ utility bills,” Kwanza Hall, the city council member who introduced the resolution, said in a statement this week.
