The original star is coming back for the long awaited sequel.
Dick Van Dyke has confirmed rumours that he will make a cameo appearance in 'Mary Poppins Returns' and will be returning to the UK to begin shooting next year. While he won't be reprising his role as Bert, the character he will play will be somewhat familiar to people who have seen the original movie.
Dick Van Dyke returns in 'Mary Poppins' sequel
Rob Marshall directs the upcoming 'Mary Poppins' sequel, set in the 1930s with Jane and Michael Banks now all grown-up but still in need of their magical nanny after what has been described in the official synopsis as a 'personal loss'.

Disney are planning to make a new Mary Poppins film. The upcoming film will not be a remake of the much beloved original but will take place 20 years later when the magical nanny has a new set of children to take care of. Like the original, the film will be set in London.

'Alexander And The Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day' follows its roots, and sets its sights squarely on the family market.
It's taken quite a while for a film adaptation of the beloved children's book to appear, perhaps because its title is rather cumbersome: Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day. But there the full title is on posters (with commas) and across the screen (without them), although it could be argued that the story hasn't been adapted with quite as much reverence.
‘Alexander And The Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day’ is based on the book from 1972
Originally published in 1972, the award-winning book by Judith Viorst won a shelf-load of awards. The film adaptation, by first-time screenwriter Ron Lieber, flips the story around: now it's not Alexander who's having such an awful day: he has wished his bad luck on everyone around him instead.
There's nothing wrong with this bright and goofy family comedy, but there's nothing much to it either. As a bit of mindless entertainment, the film is smart and funny enough to keep audiences entertained, spinning a swirling vortex of bad luck and wacky slapstick around one lively family. But it's utterly weightless, without even a hint of an edge, and anyone who loathes either nutty physical gags or sappy sentimentality should steer well clear.
Everyone in the audience can understand how Alexander (Ed Oxenbould) feels: he's fed up with the fact that no one notices that his life is just one humiliation after another, so on his 12th birthday he wishes that his family would have a taste of his misfortune. Sure enough, everything that can go wrong does. Dad Ben (Steve Carell) has to take the baby with him to an important job interview; mom Kelly (Jennifer Garner) has a work event go horribly wrong; teen brother Anthony (Dylan Minnette) struggles to make prom night special for his demanding-diva girlfriend (Bella Thorne); and middle sister Emile (Kerris Dorsey) gets ill on opening night of the school play she's starring in. On the other hand, Alexander's day isn't so bad, as he finally catches the eye of cute girl Becky (Sidney Fullmer).
The plot is laid out as a series of minor calamities that escalate to crazed proportions as the day goes on, but only until the screenwriter decides to have mercy on the characters and let them bond to face the mayhem. Frankly, this is such a wildly happy family that nothing about the film is believable: their problems exist strictly for laughs. Thankful, most of the set pieces are genuinely funny due to the up-for-it actors, who make the most of their characters and the connections between them. There's also a terrific stream of cameo roles for comedy aces like Megan Mullally (Will & Grace), Jennifer Coolidge (American Pie) and Donald Glover (Parks and Recreation). Dick Van Dyke even makes a witty appearance as himself.

Dick Van Dyke and his wife Arlene have joked about his accident in L.A. on Sunday (28th August). Van Dyke's Jaguar burst into flames and a passer-by pulled him, uninjured from the vehicle before the police arrived.
Dick Van Dyke was involved in a potentially serious car accident on Sunday (28th August) when his car caught fire.

A number of people placed 911 calls regarding Van Dyke's car, the recordings have been obtained by TMZ, and one caller said "I don't think he's aware it's on fire." Others described the car's condition: "it's smoking but I've just spotted a load of flames underneath it."

Dick Van Dyke was pulled from his burning car by a passer-by in L.A yesterday (20th August). Van Dyke was driving down a freeway when his car burst into flames. Fortunately the 87-year-old actor has not needed medical assistance despite being trapped in a "melted car".
Dick Van Dyke has narrowly escaped a serious and, in all probabilities, fatal accident owing to the kindness of a passing stranger. Van Dyke was driving along the 101 freeway in Los Angeles when his Jaguar burst into flame. Admirably, a passer-by named Jason Pennington (according to TMZ) was driving along the same freeway when he saw a car full of smoke on the side of the road, with an elderly man - it later transpired was musical legend Dick Van Dyke- attempting to free himself from the driver's seat.

Dramatically, Pennington pulled the 87-year-old actor from the driver's seat just as flames began to enter the car. Thankfully, although Van Dyke was obviously shaken, no damage was done and he did not need to be taken to hospital. As suggested by the L.A. Times it seems Pennington and another passer-by were off-duty nurses who rushed to Van Dyke's aid.

Dick Van Dyke says his head bangs every time he lays down.
Dick Van Dyke has a medical problem and needs you to help diagnose it. The legendary actor, 87, was expected to turn up to receive the Lifetime Achievement Award for Bettering Humanity Through Comedy At New York's 92Y this week, but a representative for the organization confirmed to E! News he would be unable to make it. "Due to a medical condition, Mr. Van Dyke is unable to travel to New York for the program," said the spokeswoman."
The details remained sketchy, until the Diagnosis Murder star took to Twitter to let his fans know the problem. "My head bangs every time I lay down. I've had every test come back that I'm perfectly healthy. Anybody got any ideas?" he tweeted on Wednesday. Van Dyke immediately received a slew of responses from his followers, some of whom worked in the medical industry. The actor elaborated shortly afterwards, saying it's been going on for seven years and that he's had "every test you can think of (CAT Scan, MRI, Spinal tap etc)."
The actor then re-tweeted a question from another followers asking if it feels "like you heartbeat/pulse throbbing in your head," to which he answered, "YES!"
