Growing up, Mary Poppins was an integral part of my weekends. She was there when I had to stay home sick from school or when it was too rainy to go outside and play. The movie Mary Poppins cultivated my imagination and taught me to the power of visiting distant lands using no other transportation than my brain. It was because of Mary Poppins that I sang as I cleaned my room and found a new appreciation in the simplicity of playing with sidewalk chalk.
In not so many words, the movie is a classic. This is why I simply cannot wait to share my love of this story with my kids when it hits theatres nationwide on December 19th!
Mary Poppins Returns
Joining the Disney line-up of films is a long overdue sequel to the original Mary Poppins released back in 1964. In this upcoming release, Mary returns to once again look after the Banks kids who have seemingly forgotten how to be a kid following a tragic loss. With her, she brings the revival of a childhood almost forgotten. One that I am ready to remember.
