Mary Poppins Returns plot

Set two decades after the original, in the new story, our beloved Michael (played by Ben Whishaw) and Jane (Emily Montimer) are all grown up with children of their own, and after Michael suffers a personal loss, Mary Poppins re-enters their lives.

She helps the children, who are played by Pixie Davies, Nathanael Saleh and Joel Dawson, rediscover the joy and wonder that is missing in their lives.

With up-to-date CGI wizardry and new songs, this new film has a lot to live up to but it looks like theres going to be plenty of the original charm and imagination, as Mary takes the children to far away lands, filling their heads with stuff and nonsense, and reminding us all what its like to be a child.
