In Depression-era London, a now-grown Jane and Michael Banks, along with Michael's three children, are visited by the enigmatic Mary Poppins following a personal loss. Through her unique magical skills, and with the aid of her friend Jack, she helps the family rediscover the joy and wonder missing in their lives.Written by
Author P.L. Travers was very critical of the first film, especially the music and animation. However, towards the end of her life, she authorized the creation of a stage production by Sir Cameron Mackintosh and Walt Disney Theatrical based on the film and her novels, with the stipulation that no one involved in the creation of the film (particularly the Sherman brothers) be involved, and even included these requirements in her will. Although she passed away in 1996, the play successfully debuted in 2004. Largely as a result of this reconciliation, Walt Disney Studios was able to restart negotiations with Travers' estate, which resulted in authorization for this film. See more »
Tuppence invested for 20-some years would be more likely to result in bus fare than pay off the mortgage on a house. As such, some viewers have speculated that Mr. Dawes Jr.'s story about that investment is an excuse for the bank president to arbitrarily forgive Michael Banks' debt in view of his nephew's treatment of him without it appearing to be an act of charity.

This is profoundly one of the years very best pictures! It is filled with pure bliss and the magic Disney has been aiming to possess is finally here and even better than expected. It is a genuine musical with great tunes and fun, poppy, meaningful lyrics that help tell the meaning of the story. Emily Blunt is outstanding and exceptional in this role as Mary Poppins, she makes the character her own and knocks it right out of the ball park with her excellent vocals and range! What a cast! The entire ensemble does an outstanding job working together and that is really how this film works is because of each meaning the character has to the story. Last but definitely not least, Rob Marshall does a fantastic job directing the entire film, there is no one else who could have revived the magic disney once had. I expect it to get nominated at the Academt Awards for Best Picture, Actress, Director and more! We should also expect to see Emily Blunt wins Best Actress at the Golden Globes and more! Extremely impressed and planning to see it in theatres for a second time. Highly recommend to see Christmas Weekend!
