Mary Poppins Returns is one of the most talked about film sequels in a long time. Unlike other movies that have come out recently, this film is a full-on sequel rather than a reboot of an older story. In addition, the casting of Emily Blunt as Mary Poppins was pure genius. She was practically born to play this part. To keep us supplied with our fix of Mary Poppins goodness, Disney just released a new trailer and post for Mary Poppins Returns.
