Oh, how I wish I would have had a Mary Poppins when my children were growing up. At least I was able to share this classic movie with my loves many times throughout their childhood. This is one movie I could see over and over again and I would be lying if I said that I didn’t know every word of every song. Because I do. All of them. And, I’m hoping some show up in the sequel and I will have to practice the most self control and not sing in my very best shower voice. Ehem.
In the sequel, which arrives in theaters this Christmas, Mary Poppins is back to help the next generation of the Banks family find the joy and wonder missing in their lives. Can you imagine their adventures? Here are two sneak peek images to peek your curiosity. Exciting, right?
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.
