“Anything can happen if you let it.” Last night audiences were gifted with the debut of Disney’s MARY POPPINS RETURNS! I couldn’t be more excited an all-new sequel to the classic Disney family film, which arrives in theatres this Christmas. Growing up, I still remember watching the original film on VHS and loving the scene with the carousel horses. How wonderful is it that Mary Poppins is back, and now a whole new generation can discover the magically fun of everyone’s favorite practically perfect nanny.
Once again, Mary Poppins returns to the Banks family, but helps the next generation of Banks children find the joy and wonder that is missing from their lives with the help of her optimistic street lamplighter friend, Jack.
“Winds in the east, mist coming in… Like something is brewing and bout to begin.” What could that something be? The teaser trailer of course!
