Mary Poppins: According to Variety, Julie Andrews and Dick Van Dyke will be back together in front of the cameras later this month. It's for the DVD for the 40th anni of "Mary Poppins," a film that received 13 Oscar nominations, including a win for Julie.

Julie and Dick will be joined on the Disney DVD -- and on the piano -- by Richard Sherman. He, with brother Bob, wrote the "Mary Poppins" music for which they won two Oscars, one for the score, the other for "Chim Chim Cheree." (As we all know, their other tune, "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" became part of our language.) DVD will go beyond the usual celeb-interview addition to a disc: It will include Julie and Dick segueing into an animated scene especially created for the DVD.
