NEW! Disney's Mary Poppins Returns Images!
Hi everyone it's Xebs, Entertainment Weekly had released new images, behind the scenes and concept art for the sequel, Mary Poppins Returns, directed by Rob Marshall.
The film picks up 25 years after the events of the first film, fast-forwarding to London's mid-1930s economic slump, the actual time period of Travers' books. Number 17 Cherry Tree Lane has become the warm and loving home that banker and artist Michael Banks (actor Ben Whishaw) shares with his wife and three children. But after the sudden death of Michael's wife, the Banks family is shattered, even enthusiastic aunt Jane (actress Emily Mortimer), now a fervent union organiser and longtime housemaid Ellen (actress Julie Walters) can’t help lift spirits and so in time, the once-blossoming home is on the verge of foreclosure.
Cue the arrival of prim and peculiar Mary Poppins (actress Emily Blunt), who leads Michael's wayward children (and Jane and Michael themselves) on a series of unbelievable adventures to the top of Big Ben, the bottom of the ocean, into magical encounters with animated dancing penguins and upside-down cousins.
Disney's Mary Poppins Returns will be coming to cinemas late 2018.
