I love Mary Poppins! It is such a magical story, and I love listening to the soundtrack too. Mary Poppins is definitely one of my very favorite Disney movies, and I cannot wait until Mary Poppins Returns is out. Here is your first look at Emily Blunt playing Mary Poppins.
Mary Poppins Returns
Directed and produced by Rob Marshall, MARY POPPINS RETURNS also stars Lin-Manuel Miranda, Ben Whishaw, Emily Mortimer and Julie Walters with Colin Firth and Meryl Streep.
The film, which introduces three new Banks children, played by Pixie Davies, Nathanael Saleh and newcomer Joel Dawson, also features Dick Van Dyke and Angela Lansbury. The film is set in 1930s depression-era London and is drawn from the wealth of material in PL Travers’ additional seven books.
In the story, Michael and Jane are now grown up, with Michael, his three children and their housekeeper, Ellen , living on Cherry Tree Lane. After Michael suffers a personal loss, the enigmatic nanny Mary Poppins re-enters the lives of the Banks family, and, along with the optimistic street lamplighter Jack, 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 .
The film is produced by Marshall, John DeLuca and Marc Platt. The screenplay is by David Magee based on The Mary Poppins Stories by PL Travers with Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman writing all new songs and Shaiman composing an original score.
MARY POPPINS RETURNS will be released in U.S. theaters on December 25, 2018!
