You know what makes us happy? Well that would be pictures from the set of Mary Poppins. I didn’t think that I wanted the sequel, but guys – judging by how excited I get for pictures, I want it.
Maybe it’s that I am obsessed with Lin Manuel – cause who doesn’t love Hamilton. Maybe it’s the fact that I think Emily Blunt is the shit. But the photos from the set confirm that my heart is telling my head that I can’t wait for this to happen.
Mary Poppins Returns stars Emily Blunt, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Ben Whishaw, Emily Mortimer and Julie Walters, with Colin Firth, Dick VanDyke and Meryl Streep.
The movie hits theaters December 25th, 2018.
SYNOPSIS – Set in 1930s depression-era London (the time period of the original novels), Mary Poppins Returnsis drawn from the wealth of material in PL Travers’ additional seven books. In the story, Michael (Whishaw) and Jane (Mortimer) are now grown up, with Michael, his three children and their housekeeper, Ellen (Walters), living on Cherry Tree Lane. After Michael suffers a personal loss, the enigmatic nanny Mary Poppins (Blunt) re-enters the lives of the Banks family, and, along with the optimistic street lamplighter Jack (Miranda), uses her unique magical skills to help the family rediscover the joy and wonder missing in their lives. Mary Poppins also introduces the children to a new assortment of colorful and whimsical characters, including her eccentric cousin, Topsy (Streep).
