AceShowbiz - New images from the London set of "Mary Poppins Returns" land on the web. They give a sneak peek at %cBen Whishaw% and %cEmily Mortimer% as the adult Michael and Jane Banks. A nod to "Let's Go Fly a Kite" scene from the original film, Jane is seen holding a green kite.
Serving as a sequel to the 1964 movie, the film is set in 1930s depression-era London. It follows Mary Poppins (%cEmily Blunt%) re-entering the lives of the Banks family. Michael and Jane are now grown up. Michael already has his own children, and they live on Cherry Tree Lane with their housekeeper, Ellen (%cJulie Walters%).
The nanny will use her unique magical skills to help the family rediscover the joy and wonder missing in their lives. She also introduces the children to a new assortment of colorful and whimsical characters, including her eccentric cousin, Topsy (%cMeryl Streep%). Joining the ride is Jack the street lamplighter (%cLin-Manuel Miranda%).
Directed by Rob Marshall, it's due December 25, 2018 in the States.
