The original Mary Poppins movie is now fifty-four years old! People decided Mary Poppins needed a revival, giving it one of the longest gaps between film sequels in history. Now here it is!   Mary Poppins Returns came out on December 19, 2018.

Mary Poppins is a story about two children, Jane, and Michael, who are children of the wealthy and strict Banks family. They then meet their new nanny,  Mary Poppins. Together they go through magical adventures and also meet Mary Poppins’ friend, Bert. Mary Poppins brings the children so much joy that it opens up Mr. Banks’  heart.

In Mary Poppins Returns, Jane and Michael have grown up and had children of their own. The mysterious Mary Poppins returns to help them reclaim the joy they knew as children. The person who played Mary Poppins in the original movie also played Maria in The Sound of Music. Her name is Julie Andrews.  Emily Blunt plays Mary Poppins in the sequel.

The original movie won five academy awards. It was the only film Walt Disney made that received a Best Picture nomination in his lifetime. The total amount of money the original film made was $102 million dollars!

Mary Poppins Returns was chosen by the National Board of Review and the American Film Institute as one of the Top Ten  Films of 2018. A surprising thing learned is that Dick Van Dyke, who played Bert in the original Mary Poppins, makes an appearance in Mary Poppins Returns, and the only original actor to do so.  Sandie Angulo Chen from Common Sense Media said:  “Blunt unquestionably makes Mary Poppins her own while also keeping nostalgic viewers happy with tributes to the original in this whimsical, playful sequel.”  Everyone should go see this movie.
