Who cares that it’s been more than 50 years? In the collective memory of more than one generation, the magic and charisma of Julie Andrews as Mary Poppins and her bosom buddy Bert the chimney sweep—who plays a lamplighter in this sequel—will always live on. Emily Blunt had the unenviable task of playing the immortal nanny and surviving the inevitable comparisons. Fortunately, she pulled it off and then some. Mary Poppins returns after 25 years have passed to help the now adult Banks siblings through a tragic loss. New tricks and new songs make for an exciting comeback, turning everyday situations into endless possibilities for exciting adventures that fuse the real and the imaginary. A musical that reminds us a touch of magic never goes amiss and that to be a healthy adult means honoring the child we all carry within.
