You may or may not have known this, but yes, there’s a sequel to the 1964 film, Mary Poppins.
I think we can all agree that Mary Poppins is a classic. Fortunately or unfortunately, depending on how you look at it, there is going to be a sequel to the 1964 film and it’s called, Mary Poppins Returns. Golden Globe winner Emily Blunt will star as Mary Poppins in Mary Poppins Returns.
Mary Poppins Returns is directed and produced by Rob Marshall and stars Lin-Manuel Miranda, Ben Whishaw, Emily Mortimer and Julie Walters along with Colin Firth and Meryl Streep. The film will introduce three new Banks children, played by Pixie Davies, Nathanael Saleh and newcomer Joel Dawson. The film is set in the 1930s in depression-era London.
I don’t know about you, but I think Emily Blunt is the perfect actress to reprise the role of Mary Poppins.
Fun fact: Cate Blanchett was rumoured to play the role of Mary Poppins. Blanchett or Blunt – who do you pick?
Mary Poppins Returns will be released in theatres on December 25, 2018.
