Get A Behind-The-Scenes Look At ‘Mary Poppins Returns’

It’s been more than 40 years since Mary Poppins enchanted moviegoers; now, the magical British governess is about to make a big-screen comeback in “Mary Poppins Returns”, featuring Emily Blunt in the role made famous by Julie Andrews.

In the all-new musical sequel, “Mary Poppins is back to help the next generation of the Banks family find the joy and wonder missing in their lives following a personal loss,” explains the official synopsis. “Emily Blunt stars as the practically perfect nanny with unique magical skills who 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.”

In advance of the film’s release, Disney has released this behind-the-scenes featurette, in which Blunt, Miranda, and director Rob Marshall discuss what went into resurrecting one of Disney’s most iconic live-action characters.

“‘Mary Poppins’ was what opened my mind up, my world up, to movies, to magic,” says Marshall in the featurette, above. “So doing a sequel to ‘Mary Poppins’, the first thing you think is, Gulp!. But then you realize that there were eight books altogether. There was a real sense that there’s so much more story to be told.”

“Mary Poppins Returns” comes to theatres Dec. 19.
