Exciting news to share today! Remember when I shared Walt Disney Studios 2018 Motion Pictures Slate? Well, one of those upcoming films includes Mary Poppins Returns, starring Emily Blunt. It’s a sequel which the children are now adults. Mary Poppins is back to help the next generation of the Banks family find the joy and wonder missing in their lives. It will arrive in theatres this Christmas, and I am looking forward to it!
Check out this new Mary Poppins Returns poster!
MARY POPPINS RETURNS SYNOPSIS
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.
