I’m fairly certain that even Mary Poppins herself would find it rude to repeat something over and over but we are talking about her own movie “Mary Poppins Returns” which comes care of Walt Disney Studios and opens in theaters everywhere today. Emily Blunt is now in command of the flying umbrella and brings the smiles to the front as the timeless character made famous by the great Julie Andrews. The trailers have been widely broadcast everywhere and even RIGHT HERE for good measure if you haven’t seen them yet. Check out the Theatrical Poster, Premise and Casting down below.
The Premise: Set in 1930s London, Jane and Michael Banks are now grown-up, with Michael still living in the house on Cherry Tree Lane. He lives there with his three children, Annabel, John, and George, and the housekeeper named Ellen. After Michael suffers a personal loss, Mary Poppins comes back to the Banks family with street lamplighter Jack, and eccentric cousin Topsy. (thanks Wiki)

Piercing Ken Thoughts: My schedule is not going to find me attending this one in the cinema but what about you fine readers? Will this be one of your holiday films? Chime in down below but please no spoilers to overall plot because that would be rude and Miss Poppins has surely taught us better than that.
