Emily Blunt shines in gorgeous new MARY POPPINS RETURNS trailer, film due Christmas 2018!

Disney has released a new MARY POPPINS RETURNS trailer for the upcoming sequel. CHICAGO and INTO THE WOODS director Rob Marshall’s follow-up to the 1964 classic sees Mary Poppins (Emily Blunt) coming back into the life of the Banks family after they suffer a loss. Michael (Ben Whishaw) and Jane (Emily Mortimer) are now adults, but Mary, with the help of her friend, lamplighter Jack (Lin-Manuel Miranda), has come to bring some joy and order into the life of Michael’s three children.

This trailer hits the perfect sweet spot for a holiday film, and I’m delighted to see that Marshall has made a sequel that’s very much in the spirit of the original. It’s grand, sincere, and puts a giant smile on your face. It’s also great to see the follow-up will br bringing back 2D animation in the vein of the showstopping animated sequence from the original film, alongside some CG-infused excursions. Basically this movie looks very sweet and it will probably make a billion dollars.

MARY POPPINS RETURNS opens December 25th and also stars Meryl Streep, Colin Firth, Angela Lansbury, Julie Walters, David Warner, and Dick Van Dyke.
