About the film
Release Date: Jan 1, 2019
Director: Rob Marshall
Actors: Emily Blunt, Meryl Streep, Colin Firth, Dick Van DykeMary Poppins Returns captures that wonderful Disney magic with equal measures of nostalgia, whimsey and extravagance.
Set in 1930s Depression-era London, Jane and Michael Banks are all grown up and reeling from a devastating family tragedy. It’s up to our favorite flying nanny and her magic bag to help the family rediscover the joy and wonder missing in their lives.
A luminous Emily Blunt (A Quiet Place, The Girl on the Train) breathes twinkling new life into the role made iconic by Julie Andrews in MARY POPPINS RETURNS. She leads a stunning cast, featuring Ben Whishaw (PADDINGTON) and Emily Mortimer (THE NEWSROOM) as the grownup Bankses, and HAMILTON’s Lin-Manuel Miranda as the merry, mirthful lamplighter Jack. Also including utterly delightful appearances by Julie Walters, Angela Lansbury, Colin Firth, Meryl Streep, and the original chimney sweep himself, Dick Van Dyke.
Academy Award-winning director Rob Marshall (CHICAGO, INTO THE WOODS) brings just as much music, animation, and whimsy as the original film into this spectacular new sequel. A heartwarming romp for children and adults alike, MARY POPPINS RETURNS is a Christmas family outing that’s practically perfect in every way.
