Animated Adventure Fantasy - This is a belated musical comedy fantasy sequel to the beloved 1964 film, with the main character being played this time by Emily Blunt. Fans of Lin-Manuel Miranda should also enjoy though familiar faces such as Meryl Streep, Colin Firth, Angela Lansbury, and especially original Poppins co-star Dick Van Dyke only turn up in very small roles. This will be considered safe viewing for kids of all ages from just about all parents.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Good Mary Poppins Returns is an imperfect sequel but as a throw-away holiday film designed to provide a family viewing experience, it satisfies a need. Although Mary Poppins Returns is appropriate for children, there's a question of appeal. Was it made for today's kids or for those who were kids in the ‘60s and ‘70s?

Roger Ebert Full Review
Below Average ...falls quite short of being practically perfect in every way. The cast puts on a good show, but very little can be done to salvage the forgettable numbers...and dance routines that already look dated. A handful of colorfully charming scenes liven up the movie's dull events, but its copycat story arc isn't strong enough to stand apart from the original.

USA Today Full Review
Good While narratively no match for the classic Disney musical, the new "Mary” adds new songs and multitalented charisma machine Lin-Manuel Miranda to the mix for one undoubtedly comforting nostalgia-fest.

Rex Reed Full Review
Good ...falsely described by some reviewers as a re-make...it is nothing of the sort. It is actually a sequel, and harmless escapist entertainment is the only reason for its existence. Its charms, direction, musical production numbers and even its performances shine with a quality that surpasses the original...
