In Mary Poppins Returns, Mary Poppins is back to help the next generation of the Banks family find the joy and wonder missing in their lives following a personal loss. Emily Blunt (A Quiet Place, The Girl on the Train) stars as the practically-perfect nanny with unique magical skills who can turn any ordinary task into an unforgettable, fantastic adventure and Lin-Manuel Miranda (Hamilton, Moana) plays her friend Jack, an optimistic street lamplighter who helps bring light—and life—to the streets of London.
The film is directed by Rob Marshall (Into the Woods, Chicago) with a screenplay by David Magee (Life of Pi) and the screen story is by Magee, Rob Marshall and John DeLuca (Into the Woods) based upon the Mary Poppins Stories by PL Travers.
The producers are John DeLuca, p.g.a., Rob Marshall, p.g.a. and Marc Platt, p.g.a. (La La Land) with Callum McDougall serving as executive producer. The music score is by Marc Shaiman (Hairspray) and the film features all new original songs with music by Shaiman and lyrics by Scott Wittman (Smash) and Shaiman.
Mary Poppins Returns also stars Ben Whishaw (Spectre) as Michael Banks; Emily Mortimer (Hugo) as Jane Banks; Julie Walters (Harry Potter films) as the Banks’ housekeeper Ellen; Pixie Davies, Nathanael Saleh and introducing Joel Dawson as the Banks’ children, with Colin Firth (The King’s Speech) as Fidelity Fiduciary Bank’s William Weatherall Wilkins; and Meryl Streep (Florence Foster Jenkins) as Mary’s eccentric cousin, Topsy.
