MARY POPPINS RETURNS (2018)

When you hear they are going to make a sequel to a classic such as Mary Poppins, you get excited and also a little worried. But this movie was magical. Emily Blunt was brilliant as the practically perfect in every way nanny. The movie was able to be similar enough to the original so that the story fit and it was believed to be in the same world but also different enough that you didn’t feel as though it was a copy. The music feels reminiscent of the classic songs we all love from the first movie. While this movie looks, sounds and is acted beautifully, I don’t know that it will ever be a classic like the original. It definitely is worth checking out of you haven’t already.
