Andrews, who has been promoting her recently released children's book "The Very Fairy Princess Follows Her Heart" that she co-wrote with her daughter Emma Walton Hamilton, was asked by the Wall Street Journal if she would take part in the NBC remake, which will be produced by Craig Zadan and Neil Meron ("Smash").
"No, I don't think I will," she replied. "Listen—how long ago was it out? 50 something years ago? … So, 48 years, probably time that a remake is allowed. Why not? 'Cinderella' has been done, 'Mary Poppins' has been put on stage in the theatre. It's all part of the process of those wonderful properties going out and reaching another audience. No, I won't be in it, but I do endorse everything. I mean why not?"
Andrews was nominated for Tony Awards for her performances in My Fair Lady, Camelot and Victor/Victoria. She has also been seen on Broadway in The Boy Friend. Andrews is also an Oscar winner for "Mary Poppins" and is known for her film credits, which include "Thoroughly Modern Millie," "Star!" and "The Princess Diaries," among others.
