Mary Poppins Returns

Disclosure

Mary Poppins was a favorite when I was a kid. I wished that I had a magical nanny to take me on adventures and I wanted to dance of the rooftops with Dick Van Dyke and the other chimney sweeps. I’m certain that I sang that a spoonful of sugar would make the medicine go down whenever I was forced to swallow foul tasting liquid cough medicine.

Mary Poppins Returns aims to bring that magic back and add to this classic story. The movie will be in theaters beginning on Christmas day in 2018.

Synopsis: “P.L. Travers first introduced the world to the no-nonsense nanny in her 1934 children’s book “Mary Poppins.” However, the subsequent adventures of Mary Poppins remained only on the pages of the seven other P.L. Travers’ books…until now. MARY POPPINS RETURNS is drawn from the wealth of material in these additional books. The film also stars Ben Whishaw as Michael Banks, Emily Mortimer as Jane Banks, Julie Walters as the Banks’ housekeeper Ellen, with Colin Firth as Fidelity Fiduciary’s William Weatherall Wilkins and Meryl Streep as Mary’s eccentric cousin Topsy. Angela Lansbury appears as the Balloon Lady and Dick Van Dyke as Mr. Dawes Jr., the retired chairman of the bank now run by Firth’s character. MARY POPPINS RETURNS is directed by Rob Marshall. The screenplay is by David Magee and the screen story is by Magee & Marshall & John DeLuca based on The Mary Poppins Stories by P.L. Travers. The producers are Marshall, DeLuca and Marc Platt with Callum McDougall serving as executive producer, and the music is by Marc Shaiman with songs by Shaiman and Scott Wittman.”
