Mary Poppins has returned…
And this time, she’s out for VENGEANCE!
No, not really. Judging from the trailer that just dropped today, Mary Poppins Returns appears to be a throw back to the type of films that Disney was known for before they became associated with Star Wars and the MCU. Emily Blunt takes over the role of Mary Poppins, who returns so that she can continue to raise the Banks children.
This is the type of film that’s either going to be amazingly charming or incredibly unbearable. I’m going to hope for charming. Director Rob Marshall has got an uneven record. On the one hand, he did great work when he directed Chicago and Into the Woods. On the other hand, he also directed Nine.
By the way, this is the only movie that Meryl Streep has got scheduled for release this year. So, if she’s going to get her annual Oscar nomination, it will be for playing Topsy, who is described as being an “eccentric cousin.” Aren’t all cousins eccentric?
Anyway, here’s the trailer!
