Mary Poppins Returns (2018): The Best Musical for Kids on Disney Plus


IMDB Rating = 6.7/10

Genre: Comedy, Family, Fantasy

Starring Emily Blunt Lin-Manuel Miranda and Ben Whishaw

Director Rob Marshall

Rating : PG

Runtime – 2 hours, 19 mins

Mary Poppins returns is a sequel to the original masterpiece that focuses exclusively on the two children Mary Poppins cared for all those years ago. Their adult lives are difficult, with financial and unemployment problems. Mary Poppins returns, like the original, brilliantly balances life lessons about accepting your inner child and taking the time to appreciate the beauty of nature with several entertaining animated sequences that keep viewers engaged.

Instead of reciting the same songs over and over again, the filmmakers integrated them into the film’s soundtrack. This leaves room for many new songs, and Mary Poppins returns has the chance to stand alone rather than relying on brand recognition and nostalgia. For both children and adults, a Disney Plus movie.
