D23 Expo 2013: Treasures of The Walt Disney Archives (Part Two - Mary Poppins - Saving Mr. Banks)

As the 50th anniversary of Mary Poppins approaches, the Archives presents a wide array of iconic display from the Academy Award-winning 1964 film, including concept art and matte paintings, Mary and Bert’s carousel horses, the snow globe from the “Feed the Birds” sequence, costumes worn by many of the central characters, and the recently acquired carpet bag, which Mary famously uses to carry her assortment of magical belongings that bring inspiration and wonder to the Banks household.
I love penguins, so, of course these original storyboards from this sequence were my favorite to look at!
