At the world premiere of Mary Poppins Returns in Los Angeles, Donny Pangilinan alongside his mom, Maricel, and sister and vlogger, Hannah, met the cast and director of Mary Poppins Returns. “It was surreal walking the red carpet and witnessing everything. Still can’t believe I was able to interview the people behind this wonderful film,” Donny shared.
Donny was able to meet and interview Emily Blunt (Mary Poppins), Lin-Manuel Miranda (Jack), Ben Whishaw (Michael Banks), Emily Mortimer (Jane Banks), and director Rob Marshall during the trip.
Complimenting Donny were Blunt and Marshall themselves. He was wearing a Mickey Mouse sweater, which Blunt took as a sign that he’s a big Disney fan. “I knew it from the sweater!” she gushes. Meanwhile, Marshall praises Donny about his interview saying, “You’re so good. You know why you’re so good? Because you listen. A lot of people have questions already planned, but you listen to what I’m saying and go with it. That’s a rare quality.”
In his vlog, Pangilinan said, “That moment really touched my heart. It meant a lot coming from a director who made so many amazing films… I was so nervous, I didn’t know if what I was saying made sense. I tried my best to be calm and to stay in the moment.”
