Mary Poppins Returns (2018) Review
Directed by Rob Marshall (Into the Woods) and written by David Magee (Life of Pi), Mary Poppins Returns is the sequel to the 1964 Hollywood classic. Starring Emily Blunt (A Quiet Place) alongside Lin-Manuel Miranda (stage's Hamilton), Ben Whishaw (Paddington), Julie Walters (Mamma Mia!), Meryl Streep (Julie & Julia) and Colin Firth (The King's Speech). "Decades after her original visit, the magical nanny returns to help the Banks siblings and Michael's children through a difficult time in their lives". 54 years later and Mary Poppins has a sequel; is it a blatant and lazy cash-grab or a charming and nostalgic return to Cherry Tree Lane?

'Mary Poppins Returns' Review
