Mary Poppins is a mysterious character. People aren’t quite sure where she comes from, but she is best known for being a magical nanny with a bottomless carpetbag. In Mary Poppins Returns, Mary Poppins is played by actress Emily Blunt and returns to help the Banks family, not having aged a bit over the decades. Proclaiming herself as “practically perfect in every way,” Mary is stern with the children, but she is also incredibly kind and nurturing, making her very well-liked. The children love her mostly for her magic as she takes them on fantastic adventures, but then denying any magic has happened once the experience is over. With her iconic blue coat and red hat, no costume would be complete without her bag and trusty umbrella!
In the original 1964 film, audiences are introduced to Bert, Mary’s chimney-sweeping friend. However, in Disney’s sequel, Mary Poppins Returns, viewers are introduced to Bert’s former apprentice Jack, a lamp-lighter in London. Played by Lin-Manuel Miranda, Jack acts as Mary’s sidekick throughout the movie, helping Mary every step of the way. Now the same age as the now-adult Banks children, Jack is the only one who remembers the magic of Mary Poppins, and his childlike nature leads to fun and adventure. Through his singing and dancing, audiences can relive the magic and fantasy from the original film.
The Mary Poppins story spans back to 1934 with children’s books written by P.L. Travers. Since the magic first began, Mary Poppins has become an iconic character in the Disney franchise. As a nanny who uses her magical powers to help the Banks family, Mary Poppins allows fans to escape reality. You can follow her fantastic adventures as she seeks to teach the Banks children valuable life lessons.
Mary Poppins is perhaps best known for arriving from the sky, literally blowing away all of the other nannies. Her arrival forced the Banks family to hire her as the children’s nanny. Mary takes the children on an outing where magical events transpire. Such experiences include carousel horses that race one another and having laughing fits that cause them to float high into the sky. Now, over fifty years later, Disney continues its magic and adventure with Mary Poppins Returns. The most recent story follows Michael Banks, now grown up with children of his own.
