Here’s what the distributor says about their film: “Set in 1935 London, 25 years after the events of the original film, it sees Poppins, the former nanny of Jane and Michael Banks, returning after a family tragedy.

This sequel to the 1964 classic Disney film is set in Depression-era London. It follows a now-grown Jane and Michael Banks, who along with Michael's three children, are visited by the enigmatic Mary Poppins following a personal loss. Through her unique magical skills and with the aid of her friend street lamplighter Jack, she helps the family rediscover the joy and wonder missing in their lives.

There is also an eccentric cousin named Topsy (Meryl Streep). The film uses storylines from the P.L. Travers’ children books focusing on the magical nanny’s continued adventures with the Banks family. Songwriting team Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman (“Hairspray”) composed new original songs and a new score.”
