Mary Poppins Returns (2019)

In 2015 the present film went into development, having received the green light from Travers’ estate. Mary Poppins Returns was directed by Rob Marshall, who is best known for Chicago and Into the Woods. The first film took place before World War One. The story has moved to the 1930s, with grownup Jane Banks (Emily Mortimer) and Michael Banks (Ben Whishaw) living in the old house, but with challenges to deal with.
In the film, little Georgie Banks (Joel Dawson) goes to a park, chasing an old kite carried away by the wind. He grabs the string, and the string pulls him. Before he can be swept off, he is brought down to earth by Jack (Lin-Manuel Miranda), a friendly lamp lighter. Together they reel in Mary Poppins, played by Blunt. “I was flying a kite and it got caught on a nanny!” Georgie declares. (Read more.)
