It's been many years since Mary Poppins visited Jane and Michael Banks and worked as their magical nanny. Now grown, Michael (Ben Whishaw) is a widower with three children: Annabel (Pixie Davies), John (Nathanael Saleh) and Georgie (Joel Dawson). When the bank is about to repossess his childhood home after he misses several payments, his sister Jane (Emily Mortimer) helps him search through their father's papers for the shares they own in the bank.

Meanwhile, as the children head off across the park to buy some groceries, Georgie plays with a kite that his father threw out. It nearly pulls him into the air, but he's saved by a lamplighter named Jack (Lin-Manuel Miranda). When the kite returns to the ground, Mary Poppins (Emily Blunt) is holding onto it and announces she's come to London to be the children's nanny.

  • 2 stars "It didn't have the same dash and verve as the original. The best characters were portrayed by the children, Dick Van Dyke, Angela Lansbury, and Meryl Streep. Blunts performance of Mary Poppins gave the character a self important air. None of the music stayed with me when we left . Kudos to the costume designer and most of the choreography."
  • 3 stars "It was disjointed. And we didnt come away singing any of the music. Disappointing movie."
  • 4 stars "I actually didn't like the old one, I thought it was pretty hokey. Even when I was a kid. The only thing I liked about it was the kids and the era it was set in. But this one was good. Better than the original. Has the same old-timey feel. Emily Blunt was good. Not as sweet as Julie Andrews, but still good in her own right."
