In case you missed it, Disney has been recreating classic films from our childhood—both live-action and animated. Recently, the latest film to hit theaters has been the recreation of Mary Poppins—Mary Poppins Returns starring Emily Blunt.
So far, critics have raved about how amazing the new movie is and how Blunt portrays the role perfectly and flawlessly. Aside from her incredible acting, there are many scenes in the movie that have left viewers speechless. In particular, the bathtub scene. During a song and dance number, Blunt disappears under water and, seems to sink right into the tub. But, how do they do it?
The first thing that people originally think is, obviously, CGI. Think about it—if they can make dragons blow down an entire ice wall in Game of Thrones, they can make a woman disappear in a bubble bath—right?
But, it turns out, thanks to some behind-the-scenes footage of the movie filming, it turns out that Blunt actually does literally disappear in the bathtub. In the video from BTS, Blunt is seen actually falling into the bathtub.
And, she goes down a long, dark, technical tunnel.
People online were mindblown at the technical work done for this film. Honestly, it’s outstanding.

I can’t believe how many times she did this and in just 3 seconds she’s cleaned off and does it again. I still haven’t reached the end
