It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!!
The anticipation is building as five NEW character posters and a sneak peek from Disney’s Mary Poppins Returns has been released.
Mary Poppins Returns is directed by Rob Marshall and written by David Magee, from a story by Magee, Marshall, and John DeLuca. Based on the book series by P. L. Travers and a sequel to 1964's Mary Poppins, the film stars Emily Blunt as the title character, with Lin-Manuel Miranda, Ben Whishaw, Emily Mortimer, Julie Walters, Dick Van Dyke, Angela Lansbury, Colin Firth, and Meryl Streep in supporting roles. Van Dyke is the only actor from the original to return, portraying the son of one of his original characters.
Set in 1935 London, 25 years after the events of the original film, it sees Poppins, the former nanny of Jane and Michael Banks, returning after a family tragedy. Poppins visits Jane and her brother Michael, now a father of three, and helps them rediscover the joy they knew as children.
The score of the film was composed by Marc Shaiman. The songs were written by Shaiman with lyrics by Scott Wittman. The soundtrack will be released physically on December 7, 2018.
Mary Poppins Returns flies into theatres on December 19th.
