Experience new adventures on Cherry Tree Lane when the film opens in theaters nationwide on December 19
In Depression-era London, a now-grown Jane and Michael Banks, along with Michael’s three children, are visited by the enigmatic Mary Poppins following a personal loss. Through her unique magical skills, and with the aid of her friend Jack, she helps the family rediscover the joy and wonder missing in their lives. —Disney
Original star Julie Andrews declined to appear in the new movie, but her costar Dick Van Dyke, 92, does have a small role in the film (and he’s revealed in the new trailer). Also on board are Lin-Manuel Miranda as Jack the lamplighter, Meryl Streep as Mary’s cousin Topsy, Colin Firth as Michael’s boss, and Angela Lansbury as the Balloon Woman. The film is directed by Rob Marshall (Chicago) and written by David Magee (Finding Neverland).
Dick Van Dyke never ages….here he is in the original Mary Poppins, and the new one (in which the spritely 92 year old dances on a desk amongst other things). #dear #MaryPoppinsReturns #DickForSanta pic.twitter.com/F361mMYyss
