Mary Poppins Returns (2019) Is Full of New and Familiar Tricks

Mary Poppins, the British superhero equipped with a talking umbrella and bewitched carpetbag, first debuted onto the big-screen nearly fifty four years ago. Having become a Disney and childhood classic starring Julie Andrews and Dick Van Dyke in the hotly contested adaptation between author P.L. Traver and Walt Disney, the beloved nanny makes her comeback in a familiar and fresh "remake-quel" of the original.

Set twenty-five years after the 1964 film, Mary Poppins (Emily Blunt) returns to the Banks’s home when siblings Michael (Ben Whishaw) and Jane (Emily Mortimer) are all-grown up and have fallen on hard times at the height of the Great Depression. Michael, in particular, is struggling to overcome  his wife's passing when he learns that the Fidelity Fiduciary Bank is about to repossess his family's home.While Michael and Jane race against an impossible deadline, Mary and a lamplighter Jack (Lin-Manuel Miranda) take his children on a series of adventures.
