Growing up Mary Poppins was one of my favorite films. When Saving Mr. Banks came out a few years back I re-watched the original for first time in years and found a depth I didn't pick up on as a child. So I wasn't really looking forward to a follow up given that the first movie was practically perfect in every way. More to the point who but Andrews could ever do the character justice? Nonetheless, I ventured to see this today because Rob Marshall he directed the great Chicago was the director so I had a little bit of hope this would be OK. It is not only OK but it is a wonderful <more>
fellow-up to the original film and in some ways closer to the books. My only complaint, and it is exceedingly minor given that it is a family film, is the overall template of Mary Poppins is rather obvious. The new adventure is a bit like the old one and there's a lot of analog scenes between the two films. But given that Mary Poppins returns to help the Banks children again it feels correct that this is the case. The film is surprising in its details, but comforting in its large familiar strokes.I think, and I can't believe this is true, Blunt is the main reason for this. Andrews is the gold standard but Blunt is almost her equal. Her Poppins is funny, stern, warm, knows more than she let's on, has everything in hand and is utterly charming. Blunt is everything you would want from the character and more. I was most surprised by her vocal performance being as good as it is. Jack Bert's stand in and family relation is also a great character. Miranda gives an crackerjack performance of charm, wit and wisdom. Best and weirdest of all Miranda uses a bad cockney accent all the time and while singing! that *somehow* manages to be obviously bad yet believable and adorable. Everyone is so good in this and the thing I thought most likely to sink the picture is the best part.Not to overlook the score because it is so good I just brought it. It is not quite as memorable as the original but it is solidly singable and ear wormy. So while, say, "Can You Imagine That?" is not quite as perfect as "A Spoonful of Sugar" it is a brilliant song in its own right. The real standout is "A Cover is not a Book" as it is clever, funny, and carries a lot of weight in the story. I think I will playing this on a loop for a while.The film is quite technically polished. I would argue that the integration of the live-action and animation is done better here than in the original. The cinematographer, art director, and custom designer did a better job of making the various wolds far more seamless here than in the 1st film. The music hall scene is fun and exciting as well as being a marvel.I thought this film was going to be a disaster. Turns out it is among the best of the year.

Thank you Mary Poppins for warmly reminding us that anything is possible (by Ed-Shullivan)
Mrs. Shullivan and I treated ourselves to a special early Christmas present by attending the opening night of Mary Poppins Returns. Our anticipation for this night was more than just rewarded, we received a very pleasant reminder that although we are more than half a century old we are all still children at heart if we just allow our imaginations to wander as when we were children.Emily Blunt was perfectly cast as Mary Poppins as was Lin-Manuel Miranda as Jack the Lantern lighter. The story line surrounds the now adult Michael Banks Ben Whishaw who lost his wife just a few years ago and is <more>
trying to raise his three 3 young children in the original Banks family home at 17 Cherry Tree Lane. Michael's sister Jane Emily Mortimer is single, never married, and has her own apartment while she fights for the rights of the low income workers.Michael Banks three children are Anabel,John and the youngest Georgie. The three Banks children love their father and sooner than they should have to worry about losing their home through a bank foreclosure , Mary Poppins magically appears. Mrs. Shullivan and I, as well as the rest of the theaters audience let out a noticeable sigh of relief because we realized that the magic of a Walt Disney movie is now upon us, and we were not disappointed in our faith in Mary Poppins. Quite the contrary, the evening was perfect as the films songs were beautiful, the dance numbers choreographed and animated to as many animals as were on Noah's Ark, the cinematography magical and the story of Michael and Jane Banks and the children that warms one's heart.We especially loved the Banks childrens first afternoon bath with Mary Poppins and their most colorful and animated underworld adventure with song and dreams of a magical world. Just believe and anything is possible!Loved it! A perfect 10 out of 10!
Practically perfect in every way, as Mary Poppins would say. (by trinaboice)
Loved it! I thought it had the magic, music, and heart of the original Mary Poppins. Emily Blunt does a great job filling Julie Andrews' shoes. You can read my entire movie review at Movie Review Mom dot com
SUPERB (by rosati-86267)
I grew up adoring Mary Poppins. This long awaited sequel was so full of magic, fun and nostalgia that I was instantly hit with the warmth and charm of the original. Emily Blunt was perfect. Lots of fun cameos. 👍🏼👍🏼
A New Classic (by ronterry55)
Emily Blunt, Lin-Manuel Miranda & Ben Wishaw are practically perfect in every way. The child actors are terrific, also. Mary Poppins returns to 17 Cherry Tree Lane to assist grown Michael Banks save his home & family. Emily Blunt is wonderful as a more strict and sarcastic Poppins while still being loving. Her singing is excellent. Lin-Manuel has real screen presence. He is not the best singer, but he makes up for that with good acting & dancing skills. Ben Wishaw is wonderfully heartbreaking as Michael, a man lost after the death of his wife, and not knowing how to cope. He had <more>
me in tears several times. The rest of the cast are excellent, and the addition of Dick Van Dyke, Meryl Streep, and Angela Lansbury in small parts is pure sugar. The songs and music are sweet and catchy. The choreography by director Rob Marshall is well executed. Any movie that can make me laugh and cry, and want to applaud at it's finish is one wonderful movie. I will return to see it.
Greetings again from the darkness. The 1964 classic Disney film MARY POPPINS is much beloved and has been shared across generations for more than 50 years. It won 5 Oscars on 13 nominations, and shifted Julie Andrews from a Broadway star to an international movie star, as she won the Oscar for Best Actress while becoming the ideal nanny for most every boy and girl. Rarely do reboots, remakes, or sequels to the classics make much of a dent with the movie-going public, but it's likely director Rob Marshall's CHICAGO, INTO THE WOODS film will be an exception. Marshall balances <more>
nostalgia with contemporary, and benefits from a marvelous successor to the Mary Poppins role ... Emily Blunt.The film opens in low-key fashion as we follow Jack Lin-Manuel Miranda through town as he performs his lamplighting duties singing the melancholic "Underneath the Lovely London Sky". It's actually a bit of a dry opening that may have some impatient kids wondering why their parents dragged them to see this. Soon after, we are at the familiar 17 Cherry Tree Lane - the Banks' home - easily recognizable from the original film. We meet grown up siblings Michael Ben Whishaw and Jane Emily Mortimer . Jane is a labor organizer following in her mom's footsteps, and Michael is a struggling artist and widower raising 3 kids. He has taken a teller job at the Fidelity Fiduciary Bank where his dad now deceased worked, but mostly he's an emotional wreck. In fact, the only way to save the family home from foreclosure is with proof of his father's bank shares ... something the evil new Bank President, William Weatherall Wilkins Colin Firth , conspires to prevent.It's at this point that the kids' popcorn should just about be gone, so it's fortunate that our beloved nanny makes her timely appearance ... literally floating with practically perfect posture into the park where Georgie an adorable Joel Dawson and lamplighter Jack are flying a very recognizable kite. Jack, having been an apprentice under Bert the Chimney Sweep, is quite familiar with the significance of Mary Poppins' arrival. Back on Cherry Tree Lane, Michael and Jane are shocked to see their childhood nanny back in the house, and Michael's two spunky twins Anabel Pixie Davies and John Nathanael Saleh aren't sure what to make of this mysterious visitor.Director Marshall wisely utilizes the template from the original film, so many of the subsequent sequences have a familiar and cozy feel to them. Mary Poppins' "Off we go" kicks off a fantastical bathtub adventure and leads to the first of many smile-inducing, visually spectacular moments. A broken porcelain bowl guides us to a beautiful hand-drawn animation from Walt Disney Studios sequence with horse-drawn carriage, penguins, and more. Meryl Streep performs "Turning Turtle" in her topsy-turvy studio, and there is an extended perhaps a bit too long dance sequence featuring Jack and the other lamplighters singing "Trip a Little Light Fantastic".Julie Walters appears as the Banks' housekeeper and David Warner is Admiral Boom, the Banks' canon-firing neighbor; however it's two cameos that will really hit home with the older viewers: Angela Landsbury not in the original is the balloon lady singing "Nowhere to Go but Up", and the remarkable Dick Van Dyke a huge part of the original plays an elderly Mr. Dawes Jr from the bank - and even performs a dance routine atop a desk. All of the actors perform admirably, yet this is clearly Emily Blunt's movie. She shines as the practically perfect nanny, whether debating with her umbrella, digging in her mystical baggage, filling heads with 'stuff and nonsense', teaching life lessons to those in need, or singing solo and with others. It's a wonderful performance and she becomes Mary Poppins for a new generation.Director Marshall co-wrote the story and screenplay with David Magee and John DeLuca, and they have created a worthy sequel a quite high standard from P.L. Travers' original books that is delightful and a joy to watch. The group of original songs by Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman serve the story fine, but the one downside to the film is that none of the new songs are as catchy or memorable as those of the Sherman Brothers Richard and Robert from 54 years ago. They won Oscars for Best Score and Song "Chim Chim Che-ree" , and left us singing others such as "Spoon Full of Sugar", "Let's Go Fly a Kite" and of course, "Supercalifragilistic". These new songs including "Can You Imagine That", "The Place Where Lost Things Go", "A Cover is not the Book", "Nowhere to Go but Up" all contribute to the story and to the viewer's enjoyment, but none leave us singing or humming as we depart the theatre.This is a film where those behind-the-scenes are crucial to its success. Oscar winning cinematographer Dion Beebe MEMOIRS OF A GEISHA and Editor Wyatt Smith both are at the top of their game, and Costume Designer Sandy Powell delivers stunners, not just for the singing nanny, but for all characters. The core of the story remains rediscovering the magic in life, and finding joy in each other - and this sequel also provides the adventures to match the original. It's simultaneously familiar and fresh, which is key to a successful follow up to a beloved classic. Director Marshall has signed on to Disney's live action THE LITTLE MERMAID, but it's with MARY POPPINS RETURNS where he has delivered a film that is practically perfect in every way.
Emily Blunt is Julie Andrews (by Alexander_Blanchett)
A very good sequel that actually appealed to me more than the original because I could relate much more to it for some reasons. It works because it is not only a sequel but more of a homage and almost a remake to the Julie Andrews classic. I am glad they adapted the old fashioned style rather than making it all modern and new for example with computer animations or anything like that which would have hurt the experience and would have have been an insult to the original. But it wasnt. It was very old fashioned and traditional cinema which was great. The story itself was tolerable but could <more>
have been better. It was quite simple and many of the musical numbers did not really have much of a connection. Emily Blunt was fantastic! Yes! She nailed it! It wa like a reincarnation of Julie Andrews. She managed the gestures, the charme and the little amount of sarcasm. Great turn and she deserves all the applause for it! Lin-Manuel Miranda was okay. Nothing to write home about and his character didn't really add anything to the story except being a homage to Dick Van Dyke who was great in his cameo . Meryl Streep was fun for sure, but her character very over the top. Ben Whishaw had some fine moments and was generally good. Emily Mortimer however was quite boring and again, the film wouldn't have been any different without her being there. I liked the kids, especially Joel Dawson who was a true scene stealer and totally captured the screen. Julie Walters , well is Julie Walters and that is enough to guarantee a great and fun performance. Colin Firth was a slimey villain and obviously had a lot of fun playing that role. Not bad, not really brilliant but nice. Fun cameo by Angela Lansbury. I liked the songs, the general atmosphere and of course the fantastic turn by Blunt.
Emily Blunt does just about as good of a job reprising such an iconic role as possible.As for the rest of the movie their is some lack of originality-particularly with Lin-Manuel Miranda's character-but they do make some original creative decisions that are quite unique and that are really good.It's not perfect but it's a very good sequel to the original considering it's been 54 years.
