In the story, Michael (Whishaw) and Jane (Mortimer) are now grown up, with Michael, his three children and their housekeeper, Ellen (Walters), living on Cherry Tree Lane. After Michael suffers a personal loss, the enigmatic nanny Mary Poppins (Blunt) re-enters the lives of the Banks family, and, along with the optimistic street lamplighter Jack (Miranda), uses her unique magical skills to help the family rediscover the joy and wonder missing in their lives. Mary Poppins also introduces the children to a new assortment of colorful and whimsical characters, including her eccentric cousin, Topsy (Streep).

    To me, the title implies Mary Poppins is going to take on The Penguin and Christopher Walken, which sounds way more delightful to me.

    If Christopher Walken is gonna sing supercalifragilisticexpialidocious than this could well exceed 3 hours.

    Only part that saddens me is not having Julie Andrews in the movie. I think Emily Blunt was a perfect casting choice.

    At least it's a clear sequel and not some reboot where Julie Andrews cameos as some quirky old lady who tells Mary "You know, you remind me of someone...ah well, I'm off to feed the birds!"
