Entertainment Weekly has provided us with our best look yet of Emily Blunt as everyone’s favorite nanny from “Mary Poppins Returns”.
The latest issue of Entertainment Weekly takes you behind the scenes to visit stars Emily Blunt and Lin Manuel Miranda on the set of “Mary Poppins Returns”. You can pick up this very special issue this Friday when it hits newsstands but until then read the new synopsis of the film below.
From Entertainment Weekly:
Mary Poppins Returns, directed by Rob Marshall (Into the Woods), picks up 25 years after the events of the first film, fast-forwarding to London’s mid-1930s economic slump, the actual time period of Travers’ books. Number 17 Cherry Tree Lane has become the warm, loving home that banker and artist Michael Banks (Ben Whishaw) shares with his wife and three children. But after the sudden death of Michael’s wife, the Banks family is shattered — even enthusiastic aunt Jane (Emily Mortimer), now a fervent union organizer, and long-time housemaid Ellen (Julie Walters) can’t help lift spirits — and so in time, the once-blossoming home is on the verge of foreclosure.
Cue the arrival of prim and peculiar Mary Poppins (Emily Blunt), who leads Michael’s wayward children (and Jane and Michael themselves) on a series of unbelievable adventures — to the top of Big Ben, the bottom of the ocean, into magical encounters with animated dancing penguins and upside-down cousins (hey, Meryl Streep!). If anyone can help this family find the light they’ve lost, it’s Mary Poppins.
“Mary Poppins Returns” opens December 25, 2018.
