Review: Mary Poppins Returns

Mary Poppins Returns Movie Poster

That night we were invited to Boston for an advanced screening for Mary Poppins Returns which opens everywhere tomorrow! Mary Poppins is a beloved character in our home. Before our very first family trip to Walt Disney World where Eva was old enough to really understand characters we had her watch Mary Poppins. We did this because we were going to have breakfast at the Grand Floridian and meet Mary Poppins along with Tigger and Pooh and Alice in Wonderland and the Mad Hatter. But it was really Mary Poppins that we all wanted to see. After Eva watched Mary Poppins for the first time we started a month-long viewing of that movie on repeat. Allison knit Eva a scarf that was the same one that Mary wears at the beginning of the movie. So, when we met Mary Poppins at Disney it was such a magical moment.

Meeting Mary Poppins
May 17, 2009 – Eva meets Mary Poppins for the first time.

I had to laugh at this new clip because I really remember the terrible acting of the little kids in the movie which consisted of a lot of open mouths and when Mary Poppins tells Micheal to close his mouth because he is not a codfish it is too funny. That call back form the original makes me quite hopeful that we will have a new family classic with Mary Poppins Returns. Take a look at the clip below.
