Mary Poppins (portrayed by Actress Emily Blunt) is gracing the cover the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly to promote Mary Poppins 2 aka Mary Poppins Returns, the upcoming family fantasy comedy movie sequel directed by Rob Marshall, take a look below:
“Mary Poppins Returns is set in 1930s depression-era London (the time period of the original novels) and is drawn from the wealth of material in PL Travers’ additional seven books. In the story, Michael (Ben Whishaw) and Jane (Emily Mortimer) are now grown up, with Michael, his three children and their housekeeper, Ellen (Julie Walters), living on Cherry Tree Lane. After Michael suffers a personal loss, the enigmatic nanny Mary Poppins (Emily Blunt) re-enters the lives of the Banks family, and, along with the optimistic street lamplighter Jack (Lin-Manuel Miranda), uses her unique magical skills to help the family rediscover the joy and wonder missing in their lives. Mary Poppins also introduces the children to a new assortment of colorful and whimsical characters, including her eccentric cousin, Topsy (Meryl Streep).”
Well, Emily Blunt’s Mary Poppins isn’t as pretty as Julie Andrews’s Mary Poppins, but she still looks the part I guess… What do you think?
There’s also a new series of official pictures:
The film will be released in theaters on December 25, 2018.
