Mary Poppins Returns: The Official Trailer (because the world needs a heaping spoonful of sugar.)

Colin Firth, Meryl Streep, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Emily Mortimer, Julie Walters, Ben Whishaw, and Emily Blunt in Mary Poppins Returns (2018)

Mary Poppins Returns stars Emily Blunt and Lin Manuel Miranda

We’ve seen a teaser trailer before but Disney has now released the real thing, the first official trailer for Mary Poppins Returns starring Emily Blunt in the role Julie Andrews made famous. If you follow me chances are you know how important Mary Poppins was to my girlhood. No Barbies, I was a parasol and carpet bag fan all the way.

In this new story, Mary Poppins returns to look in on the grown-up Banks children, bereft after the loss of Michael’s wife. It’s a star-studded production including appearances by Colin Firth, Meryl Streep, Angela Lansbury, Julie Walters, Emily Watson and the legendary Dick Van Dyke—dancing on a desktop no less—but the trailer emphasis is on Emily Blunt and Lin Manuel Miranda with Ben Whishaw and Emily Mortimer in the key roles. Like the recent Goodbye Christopher Robin, Mary Poppins Returns is a kids' movie made for the adults in the room. Because life is hard and we need a hug.
