Mary Poppins Returns
A brand new Mary Poppins movie is coming to theatres Christmas 2018! 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.
Mary Poppins has always been one of my favorite characters and movies. I will randomly break out in songs from the MARY POPPINS soundtrack on a whim. Votes for women! Kick your knees up! Sister Suffragette! It’s got some of the most iconic characters and scenes of any movie ever made. The little old bird woman. Uncle Albert. Mr. Dawes. The penguins. The carousel! These are a few of my favorite things…oops…wrong movie.
I cannot wait to see this new story with Emily Blunt as the new Mary Poppins caring for a new generation of Banks’ children.
