In Disney’s MARY POPPINS RETURNS, an all-new original musical and sequel, Mary Poppins is back to help the next generation of the Banks family find the joy and wonder missing in their lives following a personal loss. Emily Blunt (A Quiet Place, The Girl on the Train) stars as the practically-perfect nanny with unique magical skills who can turn any ordinary task into an unforgettable, fantastic adventure and Lin-Manuel Miranda (Hamilton, Moana) plays her friend Jack, an optimistic street lamplighter who helps bring light—and life—to the streets of London.
MARY POPPINS RETURNS also stars Ben Whishaw (Spectre) as Michael Banks; Emily Mortimer (Hugo) as Jane Banks; with Colin Firth (The King’s Speech) as Fidelity Fiduciary Bank’s William Weatherall Wilkins; and Meryl Streep (Florence Foster Jenkins) as Mary’s eccentric cousin, Topsy. Angela Lansbury appears as the Balloon Lady, a treasured character from the PL Travers books and Dick Van Dyke is Mr. Dawes, Jr., the retired chairman of the bank now run by Firth’s character.
