The idea of there being a Mary Poppins sequel seemed a little ridiculous until they announced Emily Blunt would be playing the titular nanny and suddenly it slotted into place. As long as it respects the original and Lin-Manuel Miranda gives us some memorable tunes, which seems an easy task for this excellent songsmith, then this could be a great return to one of the all time best pictures. Just think, did Disney’s Oz movies change your love of the Judy Garland version? Nope. Exactly. And hey, Dick Van Dyke is coming back and that is enough of a seal of approval for me. BRING IT ON!
