Mary Poppins Returns…With A New Trailer

Coming 54 years after the original (and they say The Incredibles 2 was long-awaited) Mary Poppins Returns has a brand new trailer, showing it’s cast in full along with nostalgic inducing 2D animation and fantasy sequences. Check out the trailer below.

The trailer shows Emily Blunt taking over the lead role from Julie Andrews as well as Lin-Manuel Miranda as the Guy With An Awful English Accent aka Jack, plus Ben Whishaw, Emily Mortimer, Colin Firth, Meryl Streep, Angela Lansbury, Julie Walters and of course the original man with the terrible English accent, Dick Van Dyke. The story takes place in depression-era London with the now grown up Jane and Michael Banks (Whishow and Mortimer) who are visited by Mary Poppins following a personal loss as she shows the family how to rediscover the joy and wonder missing in their lives.

Directed by Rob Marshall, the sequel is in safe hands with his previous work including Chicago and Into the Woods. His musical experience as well as obvious love for the original movie comes through clearly in the trailer. Marshall takes a writing credit along with his collaborators David Magee (Finding Neverland, Life of Pi) and John DeLuca who previously produced Into the Woods, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides and Chicago. The film is due for release on 19th December 2018.

What are your thoughts regarding the film, casting, trailer, the music? Do you like it? Do you think it’s another pointless sequel or are you excited by it? 

Keep. It. Reel.
