Right now we are heading to Florida for the kids spring break and we have on the fabulous Mary Poppins Returns in the car. My kids became obsessed with the movie back in December, seeing it 3 times in the theater, as well as attending the sing along. With it being available ON Digital 4K Ultra HD™, 4K Ultra HD and Blu-ray™, my kids can enjoy Mary Poppins Returns every single day now. This is one movie you do not want to miss out on purchasing.
In December, I along with a group of bloggers, was invited to LA for the press junket of Mary Poppins Returns. You can find my interviews with songwriters Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman, Pixie Davies (Anabel Banks) and Joel Dawson(Georgie Banks), director Rob Marshall, Ben Whishaw (Michael Banks) and Emily Mortimer(Jane Banks) ,Lin-Manuel Miranda (Jack) and Emily Blunt (Mary Poppins).
SYNOPSIS of Mary Poppins Returns:
Mary Poppins Returns is a musical and theatrical film directed by Rob Marshall and is based on the book series by P.L. Travers. This is a magical return of everyone’s 1964 childhood favorite starring Emily Blunt as Mary Poppins, Lin-Manuel Miranda as Jack, Ben Whishaw as Michael Banks, Emily Mortimer as Jane Banks, Dick Van Dyke as Mr. Dawes Jr, Meryl Streep as Topsy, Julie Walter as Ellen, Angela Lansbury as the Balloon Lady, Pixie Davies as Anabel Banks, Nathanael Saleh as John Banks, Joel Dawson as Georgie Banks, and Colin Firth as Mr. Wolf.
This movie is set in 1930s London and follows the story of Mary Poppins returning to be the nanny of Michael Bank’s children, after his wife passes away. Jane Banks and Michael Banks are both helping to raise Georgie, John and Anabel Banks.
For a full review, check out my after thoughts from the Red Carpet screening. The acting, animation, music, and dancing numbers are simply magical. Like I said above, my kids can watch this movie every day and never get bored! I love it so much too!
