Mary Poppins Returns

MARY Poppins returns unexpectedly from the heavens above to young Georgie Banks (Joel Dawson) in the sequel starring Emily Blunt.

Young Georgie declared his luck at home by explaining: "I was flying a kite and it got caught on a nanny!”

This return seems to be taken from another Mary Poppins sequel "Mary Poppins Comes Back”, written by P.L. Travers in 1935.

Emily Blunt makes a delightfully whimsical Mary Poppins in this long-awaited sequel, from the very moment she lands on that London street.

She's as graceful as her successor.

Although Julie Andrews is a hard name to follow; Ms Blunt certainly does not disappoint.

She brings a fresh taste of spice to the role; to accompany the sweetness of that teaspoon of sugar Mary Poppins is known for.

Mary Poppins may have returned to the Banks family; but, not the children we know from the first film.

Jane and Michael are all grown up.

Jane (Emily Mortimer) is single and content, as she goes about her goal to improve working life in London.

Michael (Ben Whisaw) has suffered through the death of his wife, and been left with their three children.

He is struggling to care for Georgie, Annabel (Pixie Davies), and John (Nathanael Saleh).

Thank goodness for the return of Mary Poppins and her musical magic.
