After Mary Poppins departed London, Jane and Michael Banks grew up into loving and responsible adults. When Michael becomes a single father of three children after the death of his wife, Mary Poppins revisits the Cherry Tree Lane home again to try to help Michael and his family cope and move beyond their grief. Time passes quickly for most normal mortals. Mary Poppins has never been normal. Although it's now the 1930s, she looks exactly the same. Her message to Michael, Annabel, John, George and Ellen, the family's housekeeper, about enjoying life and loved ones is also still the same.

VERY GOOD 2018 sequel to 1964 GREAT Mary Poppins film. This IS a quality Disney effort with an excellent cast and fine production.
I especially enjoyed the upside down room sequence with Meryl Streep as Topsy (who is supposed to fix the bowl the kids broke) - and the large scale dance sequence with all those lamplighters.

now there's 1.5 hours I'll never get back-the reason it isn't the full running time of the movie is because after the first couple of songs I started fast forwarding past ANY singing done by the main characters. Storyline was almost the same as the original and seeing Poppins staring into reflective surfaces and primping her hair got to be very tiresome. Also the little phrases, spit spat, flip flop etc...were annoying. I'm sure Emily Blunt would have done much better with a better script and director-she was one of the reasons I wanted to watch this since I like a lot of her other work. It was nice to see Dick Van Dyke dance on a desk...but it's near the end so you have to go through all the muddiness until you get there.

A little disappointing, but you can't match a classic. Not even the animation could hold a candle to the animation of old. It definitely has a totally different attitude then Mary Poppins. I prefer the innocents of old rather then this more adult content. It seems Disney just stung together parts of other recent children productions with a few changes. I miss the first Mary Poppins because of her strength and not this one with her self absorbed entitlement.

Enjoyed the movie plus the way they did not make a sequel. Mary Poppins return was definitely a movie that stood on it's own. I remember watching the first one when I was a child and I liked the way this movie is about the next generation of people.

A well-done sequel that stayed true to the spirit of the original, with a good cast and story. The songs were fine but not as memorable as the ones in the original. It was a very long movie but worth the time.

Pleasant movie with several moments where homage is paid musically, plot-wise, or verbally to the original Julie Andrews/Dick Van Dyke original. Music is OK, but nothing you're going to spend any time humming. Lin-Manuel Miranda steals virtually every scene he's in. Fun cameos and even larger parts (Meryl Streep, Colin Firth) by famous actors/actresses. Van Dyke is pretty limber for a nonagenarian and it's wonderful to see him again. Not a blockbuster by any means.

Making a sequel to such a beloved film must have been very daunting. Since the original film is "practically perfect in every way" it would be hard for any sequel to come close to matching it. "Mary Poppins Returns" is not as good as the 1964 masterpiece, but I found it perfectly enjoyable and charming in its own right. I thought Emily Blunt did a great job playing a more acerbic version of Mary Poppins, closer to the one from the books. There were lots of great moments. I liked how the movie was an actual sequel to the original, not some sort of alternate origin tale. Since there is a whole series of books, there is a lot of actual Mary Poppins material available. It is perfectly possible to just enjoy this new film on its own merits. I doubt it will ever be as loved as the original, but it was certainly fun to visit Cherry Tree lane again. And it was a wonderful treat to see Dick Van Dyke again!

Great casting for a very uneven (and possibly unnecessary) sequel to the original classic. Wasn't really certain what they were trying to do other than imply a shared universe with Bedknobs and Broomsticks.

Great content but sour-pussed Emily Blunt is missing the quiet warmth that Julie Andrews had in the original. An old kite plays a funny role as financial deceptions lead to the Banks' home foreclosure.

40 quotes already in IMDb. Thanks to the contributors. Like to add these two related to the film's best song "The Place Where Lost Things Go":

Oh, listen to the three of you. You're all worrying far too much. After all, you can't lose what you've never lost.
===
Nothing's gone forever, only out of place. So when we need her touch and loving gaze "Gone but not forgotten" is the perfect phrase. Smiling from a star
that she makes glow. Trust she's always there... Watching as we grow. Find her in the place... Where the lost things go...
