MARY POPPINS RETURNS Trailer and Movie Poster
Growing up we were not allowed to watch many films but MARY POPPINS was one that we were allowed to watch and I was immediately captivated by the wonder and excitement of the film. To this day, it is still one of my favorite Disney movies. I was super excited when I learned that they were coming out with a sequel and I am counting down the days until its release this Christmas.
In the sequel, Mary Poppins is back to help the next generation of the Banks family find the joy and wonder missing in their lives.
MARY POPPINS RETURNS stars Emily Blunt as the practically-perfect nanny with unique magical skills who can turn any task into an unforgettable, fantastic adventure; Lin-Manuel Miranda as her friend Jack, an optimistic street lamplighter who helps bring light—and life—to the streets of London; Ben Whishaw as Michael Banks; Emily Mortimer as Jane Banks; and Julie Walters as the Banks’ housekeeper Ellen; with Colin Firth as Fidelity Fiduciary Bank’s William Weatherall Wilkins; and Meryl Streep as Mary’s eccentric cousin, Topsy. The film also introduces three new Banks’ children played by Pixie Davies, Nathanael Saleh and newcomer Joel Dawson. Angela Lansbury appears as the Balloon Lady, a treasured character from the PL Travers books and Dick Van Dyke is Mr. Dawes Jr., the retired chairman of the bank now run by Firth’s character.
This sequel promises to deliver the magic that made us fall in love with Banks family and Mary Poppins in the first place. Although in my heart, Julie Andrews will always be Mary Poppins, I can’t wait to see Emily Blunt take on this legendary role.
