I love Mary Poppins. Julie Andrews was everything. I watched the movie again, and again as a kid. I have watched it many times with my own kids. Mary Poppins is magical. The music is perfect. I hold Mary Poppins on a very high standard. When I first found out they were making Mary Poppins Returns, I was very excited– BUT– I was very nervous. Because of the high standard that I place on the original Mary Poppins, I was nervous that the Mary Poppins Sequel would not have the same level of magic. I should have known better than questioning Disney because the the Mary Poppins Returns trailer is practically perfect in every way! December cannot come quick enough. See it for yourself:
