Julie Andrews wings it minus umbrella in 'Tooth Fairy'

It may seem like deja vu when Julie Andrews makes a flying entrance in "Tooth Fairy." Forty-six years ago, she descended from the sky as superpowered nanny Mary Poppins and instantly became a beloved cultural icon.

Instead of carrying an umbrella, Andrews touches down in "Tooth Fairy" with wings as the Chief Tooth Fairy of Fairyland.

"I needed to brush up on that a bit," she quips about her flying ability, which was done with wires. "The wings were a problem. It took a bit of effort." Andrews, 74, stars opposite Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, who plays the title character, a bad-boy hockey player who specializes in knocking out his opponents' teeth on the ice.

Andrews plays Lily, the no-nonsense matriarch of Fairyland, who sentences Derek to two weeks of hard time as a tooth fairy.

Andrews relished playing the tough-as-nails fairy boss.

"I loved it," she says. "I mean, it's hard to tell this big guy off, you know."
