It’s been decades since the magical nanny Mary Poppins’s (Emily Blunt) first visit to the Banks family nursery. Now, many years later, with hardship knocking, the door is opened and her return is welcomed just the same, may the magic continue.

Written by David Magee and Directed by Rob Marshall the fine folks over at Disney have put together what would appear to be the perfect shelf mate to the original Mary Poppins (1964). Through and through there’s a hefty dose of classic Poppins DNA infused into every nook and cranny of this newer incarnation and the end result is nothing shy of magic. With art direction, animation, musical numbers, and choreography that all sit right at home with a modern twist and the stellar performances from Blunt and her co-star Lin-Manuel Miranda as the lovable lamplighter/chimney sweep Jack, it’s memory material to slide up easily alongside the warm fuzzy spot in your brain. Negative criticisms cast aside, family friendly and full of fun, this is a must see! Mary Poppins Returns is rated PG.
