    Not seen this yet and will add it to the collection later down the line when it goes into a price drop. Artwork is bad so I don't think this will sell out

    Good film IMO, and another clean design for the steel... not great, but not bad. Been meaning to pick it up on Blu for a while, so will just wait for a price drop on this.

    I would have rather had the back the front. Overall tho great title for Zavvi. Someone needed to believe in this!

    I haven't seen the movie yet (only the trailer), I do like the minimalistic look though so hoping for a nice finish if I do end up deciding to get this.

    FINALLY! I've been waiting for this since day 1. I'd given up hope. This movie had me so happy for the announcement of the Mary Poppins Steel. This made my month!

    oh I love the film, terrific performances from both leading casts, especially Thompson.. :thumbs:

    I know what they're trying to do here but isn't that to much empty space? let alone that would it be white or bare silver-ish metal finish? so I'd just prefer the regular poster over this...

    Wonderful Disney movie once again, Saw This Twice and enjoyed it very much. The story behind how Marry Poppins got to be on the Big Screen is just a wonderful treat.

    I agree @goufcustom they are trying to be clever by showing just the shadow part, it was passing until I saw Back Artwork. The Design is not well balanced and I agree full Poster should be used. I have the US Amaray and If I remember correctly it is this Artwork Poster with the usual textured Border on the slipcover. I think to leave it as it is, it is missing something. I love my Amaray Slipcover.

    It is well Deserving of a Steel treatment indeed, I just wish they would have put more thoughts behind the design as it is way too minimalistic IMO, but I might just get weak and get it anyways.

    Minimalistic is good occasionally, but this is just uninspired lazy artwork imo.

    Why could this not have come out when the Amaray was released.
    This film is a must see for any Disney fan
    The story is great and the 2 leads superb
    Will have to get this

    I find the absence of the Disney Logo or any mention that this is a Disney movie to be quite strange.

    The art doesn't make sense unless you see the full image!!!

    They've just split a perfectly good picture it so they didn't have to find another image for the back :rolleyes:

    Terrible.

    Loved the movie. Was greatly surprised!
    Will surely buy the steel when it's a little bit cheaper.

    I love this film.. Emma Thompson had me laughing a lot.. keep thinking about picking this up on amaray but I'll get the steelbook now.. when it goes down in price:naughty:wish they'd used the whole poster and not split the image into two on the back and front but it could still look nice in hand:happy:

    @harry , you wanted this to be released in steel:oohyeah:
    :thumbs::thumbs:

    At least it has a title on the spine if not much else.
