Mary Poppins Returns – But Not Soon Enough for Me!

Disclosure AffiliateEmily Blunt Mary Poppins Returns

I’m always excited about new Disney movies but in the case of Mary Poppins Returns, I am extra, super over-the-top excited! Just learning that this movie was going to be made was good news, but watching the trailer it looks like my hopes that it would be amazingly wonderful and fantastical will be fulfilled. Take a look yourself:



New music, bright and amazing fantasy sequences and LIN MANUEL MIRANDA!! – What’s not to love? I’m also so happy to see that Dick Van Dyke will be in the movie! I’ll be counting down the days until it’s in theaters December 19th.
