Everyone loves the classic movie “Mary Poppins,” and now after 54 years we are finally getting the highly anticipated sequel. “Mary Poppins Returns” is the story of Mary returning to Jane and her brother Michael, who now has three children. She wants to help them find the cheerfulness and optimism they had when they were kids.

Director Rob Marshall says he decided it was time to make a sequel because there were so many more stories to tell. Marshall wanted to continue the story many people loved and remember even though he knew it had been so long since the first movie, “Mary Poppins,” came out. He was determined to have the magical Mary Poppins played by Emily Blunt, a 35 year old British actress. Emily Blunt has been acting for 17 years but even her hard work hours didn’t stop her from having a family. Emily has been married to John Krasinski for eight years and they have two daughters. Emily hopes to have her daughters watch the movie and look up to her and her character. She was very excited for this iconic role and can’t wait for it to come out in theaters. “Mary Poppins Returns” is in theaters on December 19, so be sure not to miss this chance to see the wonderful story continued into the future.
