Mary Poppins Returns Official Trailer

Mary Poppins Returns is filled with fascinating casting decisions. Go ahead, tell me you drew a line for Lin-Manuel Miranda’s career from Hamilton to Bert Jack. Arrives in theaters December 19.

In Disney’s “Mary Poppins Returns,” an all new original musical and sequel, Mary Poppins is back to help the next generation of the Banks family find the joy and wonder missing in their lives following a personal loss. Emily Blunt stars as the practically-perfect nanny with unique magical skills who can turn any ordinary task into an unforgettable, fantastic adventure and Lin-Manuel Miranda plays her friend Jack, an optimistic street lamplighter who helps bring light—and life—to the streets of London.

  1. Having watched both trailers, particularly this one, I’m pretty sure there’s a tie-in to THE MAGICIANS, hopefully revealed in the next season…

  2. I wonder whether Dick van Dyke will reprise his horrible imitation of a Cockney accent?

    I’ve never seen the Julie Andrews version; I’d read some of the books and was not attracted to the over-sugared approach (not to mention being out of the continent when it was first released). This looks like it has a lot of other nods to the Disney (which may hurt reviews — how many live-action pictures do that dancing-with-animated-figures bit nowadays?), but might be a little less saccharine.

  3. I find it interesting that you can have not watched the movie and still feel you are an authority on whether it’s too sugary. Or saccharine, which is not the same thing.

    My opinion of the original: yes, it’s sugary and probably a bit too much so for a mature palate*, but the darker stuff and even Poppins’ own sharp edges are not entirely absent. It’s definitely not saccharine.

    Nothing in this trailer looks like it’s an appreciably *different* level of sugar from the original.

    (And I’m looking forward to it. My palate has its immature side. I can like broccoli *and* milk chocolate.)

  4. I find it interesting that you missed the clues that I’d seen pieces of it (just not the whole); possibly those pieces were unrepresentative, but they weren’t picked by people trying to present the movie as dreadful (not even, I think, the selections in Saving Mr. Banks.)

  5. My opinion of the original: yes, it’s sugary and probably a bit too much so for a mature palate*, but the darker stuff and even Poppins’ own sharp edges are not entirely absent. It’s definitely not saccharine.

    Not saccharine. Stevia, possibly.

    (I mean, I’m game. Why not.)
