From the moment I found out they were making Mary Poppins Returns, I was excited. Not only because Mary Poppins is one of my favorite musicals (which aren’t normally my jam) it’s also because the cast is so amazing. In addition to Emily Blunt, Dick Van Dyke, Meryl Streep and Angela Lansbury, Lin-Mauel Miranda is also in it…like I said, the cast is Amazing.
Have you checked out the new trailer yet? I already really wanted to see Mary Poppins Returns, but after watching the trailer, December 19th can’t come fast enough. It is going to be AWESOME!!!
Here is your first look at the new adventures on Cherry Tree Lane with the practically perfect nanny!
