Just the other day the brand new trailer for Disney’s MARY POPPINS RETURNS debuted! Yes I’m full aware I’m behind on sharing trailers with you all. Sorry!!! But check out the new poster! I’m loving the vintage feel, especially since MARY POPPINS is such a beloved classic Disney film.
In MARY POPPINS RETURNS, Mary finds herself returning to the Banks family, but this time to help the next generation of Banks children find the joy and wonder that is missing from their lives. Her optimistic street lamplighter friend, Jack, joins her on this mission.
In Disney’s MARY POPPINS RETURNS, an all-new original musical and sequel, Mary Poppins is back to help the next generation of the Banks family find the joy and wonder missing in their lives following a personal loss. Emily Blunt stars as the practically-perfect nanny with unique magical skills who can turn any ordinary task into an unforgettable, fantastic adventure and Lin-Manuel Miranda plays her friend Jack, an optimistic street lamplighter who helps bring light—and life—to the streets of London.
MARY POPPINS RETURNS is directed by Rob Marshall. The screenplay is by David Magee and the screen story is by Magee & Rob Marshall & John DeLuca based upon the Mary Poppins Stories by PL Travers. The producers are John DeLuca, p.g.a., Rob Marshall, p.g.a. and Marc Platt, p.g.a. with Callum McDougall serving as executive producer. The music score is by Marc Shaiman and the film features all new original songs with music by Shaiman and lyrics by Scott Wittman and Shaiman.
The film also stars Ben Whishaw as Michael Banks; Emily Mortimer as Jane Banks; Julie Walters as the Banks’ housekeeper Ellen; Pixie Davies, Nathanael Saleh and introducing Joel Dawson as the Banks’ children, with Colin Firth as Fidelity Fiduciary Bank’s William Weatherall Wilkins; and Meryl Streep as Mary’s eccentric cousin, Topsy. 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.
I love that Dick Van Dyke will appear in this film as well! He had such an iconic role in the original as chimney sweeper Burt. But it’s great to see him once again grace the big screen as part of the MARY POPPINS legacy once again.
