Mary Poppins Returns is the sequel to the 1964 Disney original, in which Mary Poppins helps the Banks children as they go overcome a personal loss in 1930's London. Like the first film, the new installment is based on P.L. Travers’ classic books.

Mary Poppins Returns takes place in London during the Great Depression. Michael, the lovable child in 1964's Mary Poppins, is now an adult widower. He has three children, and his sister Jane helps take care of them. The family has fallen on hard times, threatened by a cruel bank manager played by Colin Firth.

Mary Poppins Returns, also stars Dick Van Dyke, Colin Firth, Angela Lansbury and Meryl Streep.

It will release on 25 December this year. You can watch the trailer below.
