This MARY POPPINS RETURNS Special Look is Filled with Lots of Magical New Footage
Mary Poppins Returns is sure to be another big hit for Disney. This looks like it’s going to be a fantastic movie that is filled with just as much wonderful magic, wonder, and heart as the first movie.
Today we’ve got a new Special Look at the film for you to watch and this thing is packed full of all kinds of new footage filled with Mary Poppins magic and humor as she once again returns to help the Banks children who find themselves going through some difficult times.
The film is set in 1930s depression-era London (the time period of the original novels) and is drawn from the wealth of material in PL Travers’ additional seven books. In the story, Michael (Ben Whishaw) and Jane (Emily Mortimer) are now grown up, with Michael, his three children and their housekeeper, Ellen (Julie Walters), living on Cherry Tree Lane. After Michael suffers a personal loss, the enigmatic nanny Mary Poppins (Emily Blunt) re-enters the lives of the Banks family, and, along with the optimistic street lamplighter Jack (Lin-Manuel Miranda), uses her unique magical skills to help the family rediscover the joy and wonder missing in their lives. Mary Poppins also introduces the children to a new assortment of colorful and whimsical characters, including her eccentric cousin, Topsy (Meryl Streep).
The incredible ensemble cast also includes Colin Firth, Angela Lansbury as the Balloon Lady, a treasured character from the PL Travers books and Dick Van Dyke as Mr. Dawes, Jr., the retired chairman of the bank now run by Firth’s character.
Mary Poppins Returns is slated for release December 25, 2018. Are you a fan of the original Mary Poppins film and are you excited about this sequel?
