Director Rob Marshall announced the movie’s official return in May 2016.
“I am truly humbled and honored to be asked by Disney to bring P.L. Travers’ further adventures to the screen,” Marshall said in a statement. “The iconic original film means so much to me personally, and I look forward to creating an original movie musical that can bring Mary Poppins — and her message that childlike wonder can be found in even the most challenging of times — to a whole new generation.”
The film, titled Mary Poppins Returns, will feature stars such as Emily Blunt (playing the role of Mary Poppins), Dick Van Dyke (as Mr. Dawes Jr.), and Meryl Streep (as Arthur Turvy-Poppins).

Mary Poppins Returns will take a step into the “future” by fast-forwarding to the year 1935, where our beloved on-screen nanny will visit the now grown-up Jane (Emily Mortimer) and Michael Banks (Ben Whishaw), in addition to Michael’s three children, Annabel (Pixie Davies), Georgie (Joel Dawson), and John (Nathanael Saleh) following a terrible tragedy that’s left the entire family feeling rather melancholy.
