Who is ready to “trip a little light fantastic?” If you’ve seen Mary Poppins Returns then you’ll recognize that phrase from one of the songs in the film. I truly adored this movie when I saw it in theaters this past December. It’s an absolute delight – from the music to the storyline & the solid acting by Emily Blunt, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Ben Whishaw & Emily Mortimer.
In Disney’s “Mary Poppins Returns,” an all new original musical and sequel, 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 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 plays her friend Jack, an optimistic street lamplighter who helps bring light—and life—to the streets of London.
When Mary Poppins arrives at the house on Cherry Tree Lane, she discovers that not only have the Banks’ siblings, Jane & Michael, grown-up but Michael’s children are in need of the type of care that only she can bring.
Newly widowed Michael took out a loan against his house to pay for his sick wife’s medical bills. However, he has fallen behind on the loan payments & is faced with repaying the entire loan in five days or else risk having the house repossessed by the bank.
While Michael & Jane try to sort out his financial situation, Mary Poppins distracts & delights the Banks’ children. In fact, one of my favorite scenes in the movie is this whimsical bathtub scene. Take a look for yourself!
Speaking of bath time, as a mother I know all too well how it can be tedious & a chore to get your kids into the tub. So imagine my surprise when I received these cute Mary Poppins bath products!
