A new featurette has been released including interviews with stars of the film Mary Poppins Returns, Emily Blunt and Lin-Manuel Miranda, as well as the film’s director, Rob Marshall.
In this film, Mary Poppins returns to help the next generation of the Banks family find the joy and wonder that is missing in their lives following a personal loss.
Emily Blunt stars as Mary Poppins, the practically perfect nanny, with one-of-a-kind magical skills. She can turn any ordinary task into an unforgettable, fantastic adventure. Lin-Manuel Miranda plays her friend Jack, an optimistic street lamplighter who helps bring light—and life—to the streets of London.
The film also stars Ben Whishaw as Michael Banks; Emily Mortimer as Jane Banks; Julie Walters as the Banks’ housekeeper Ellen; Pixie Davies, Nathanael Saleh and introducing Joel Dawson as the Banks’ children, with Colin Firth as Fidelity Fiduciary Bank’s William Weatherall Wilkins; and Meryl Streep as Mary’s eccentric cousin, Topsy. Angela Lansbury appears as the Balloon Lady, a treasured character from the PL Travers books and Dick Van Dyke is Mr. Dawes, Jr., the retired chairman of the bank now run by Firth’s character.
Mary Poppins Returns opens nationwide on December 19, 2018.
