While Mary Poppins Returns didn’t look like my cup of tea, or rather a spoonful of sugar, the film is a pure delight! The Rob Marshall directed sequel is rather enjoyable and a fantastic revisiting of cinematic icon!
Emily Blunt nails Poppins mannerisms and it feels like she hasn’t missed a beat since the last time she flew off screen. Her co-star, Lin Manuel Miranda who plays a gas lamp cleaner Jack delights as well with his patented song and dance.
If you enjoy classic Disney or are a fan of the original Mary Poppins, you should enjoy this redemption of the classic family film!
