Mary Poppins released in 1964 has its age rating lifted from a U to a PG over ‘discriminatory language’

But now, at the risk of being told to go fly a kite by parents, censors have ruled that Mary Poppins may no longer be suitable for youngsters to watch on their own.

They add that while children of any age can watch, parents are advised to consider whether the content may upset ‘younger, or more sensitive, children’.
