One of the most charming films of 2018—and a staff favourite—was Mary Poppins Returns. Is it any wonder why?
The movie took us back to Cherry Tree Lane, the home of the Banks family in the original 1964 Mary Poppins. Set 25 years after the first film, Michael Banks still lives in his childhood home and works at Fidelity Fiduciary Bank. So everything worked out, right?
Well... unfortunately Michael had to take out a loan to keep paying for the home. And now the bank is demanding its money back or it will take the home. Michael's children—Annabel, John, and Georgie—might be able to help their father, too. But honestly, we all know who this is a job for...
It's time for Mary Poppins to return!
Sing along at home, all you like!
It might seem surprising for a sequel that took 54 years to happen to work as well as it does, but you know what? There's something quite magical about Mary—her mix of whimsy and wisdom, stern looks and surprising silliness, is infectious whatever the year. It's why she never really stopped being a huge part of the lives of kids and adults alike.
