MARY POPPINS RETURNS Talks Continuing A Classic In New Featurette

Dive into the intricacies of MARY POPPINS RETURNS as the film follows up on a classic tale!

The original Mary Poppins film is beloved across generations, so diving back into that world was no small task for the House of Mouse.

As the title suggests, Mary Poppins Returns is a sequel to the original story rather than a remake for this very reason. In a new featurette, the cast including Emily Blunt, Lin-Manuel Miranda, and Meryl Streep, alongside director Rob Marshall, talk about their relationship with the original film, the whimsy and intensity of the new film, and Blunt’s 25-years-later take on the most fabulous nanny the world has ever known.

It seems that this movie will rival the first in terms of spectacular, outrageous imagery and not of the cast is taking their job of honoring the original lightly– all great signs!

Mary Poppins Returns hits theaters on December 19, 2018.
