Did You Know?

Trivia

Angela Lansbury's character, described as "the balloon lady," asks Michael Banks whether he remembers what it is like to be a child. In Bedknobs and Broomsticks (1971), also adapted from a popular children's book, Lansbury's character, the apprentice witch Eglantine Price, shared lessons about leaving childhood behind and struggling with "the age of not believing." Therefore, Lansbury's character in the 2018 sequel could be interpreted as a nod to the 1971 film, often considered a sister film to Mary Poppins (1964), or, had the period setting permitted, perhaps even the same character.

Dare I Say It??
28 December 2018 | by comedy_claire2001See all my reviews

Ignore the negativity. Ignore the "how dare they mess with a classic?!". And, most definitely, ignore the "unforgettable music".

Mary Poppins Returns is practically perfect in every way. It has great characters, a fantastic score, memorable songs and ... dare I say it? ... a storyline! There are nods to the original without being a carbon copy; but its originality does shine through. It's colourful, it's fun, it made me smile. Don't tell me you all walked out of the cinema in the 60s remembering all the words to "Sister Suffragette" and "Stay Awake". They're cultural songs, that's why they're unforgettable. A couple more watches and you'll be "Looking Up" with "Imagination" and remembering that "nothing's lost forever".

Give it a go... you'll be pleasantly surprised. Oscar for Miss Blunt please :)
