Disney on Sunday night released the first teaser trailer for Mary Poppins Returns starring Emily Blunt a sequel to the 1964 classic.
Set in 1930s depression-era London, has Mary Poppins (Emily Blunt) coming back into the life of Michael and Jane who are now adults after the Banks family suffers a loss. Disney’s teaser trailer for Mary Poppins Returns is the very definition of a teaser as we see more kites flying than anything else.
Mary Poppins Returns is not due to hit theaters until December and that’s more than enough time for everyone to take a spoonful of sugar.
Until I see a longer trailer that shows more of the movie I can’t really get excited for the return of Marry Poppins. That’s not saying I won’t go see the movie, as I’m a huge fan of the original 1964 movie that starred Julie Andrews and Dick Van Dyke.
I know Dick Van Dyke will be returning for the sequel even if it’s a small role, but I’m curious if Julie Andrews will also make a cameo in the movie? I’ve not read or at least have never come across anything saying she wouldn’t and even though she wouldn’t be playing Poppins it would be nice to see her to appear in some fashion.
Cast: Emily Blunt, Ben Whishaw, Emily Mortimer, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Meryl Streep, Colin Firth, Angela Lansbury, Julie Walters, David Warner, and Dick Van Dyke.
Official Synopsis for Mary Poppins Returns:
“Mary Poppins Returns” is set in 1930s depression-era London (the time period of the original novels) and is drawn from the wealth of material in PL Travers’ additional seven books. In the story, Michael (Whishaw) and Jane (Mortimer) are now grown up, with Michael, his three children and their housekeeper, Ellen (Walters), living on Cherry Tree Lane. After Michael suffers a personal loss, the enigmatic nanny Mary Poppins (Blunt) re-enters the lives of the Banks family, and, along with the optimistic street lamplighter Jack (Miranda), uses her unique magical skills to help the family rediscover the joy and wonder missing in their lives. Mary Poppins also introduces the children to a new assortment of colorful and whimsical characters, including her eccentric cousin, Topsy (Streep).
