A huge thank you to Disney for flying me out to LA to attend the#MaryPoppinsReturnsEvent and #25DaysofChristmasEvent. All opinions are mine.
I have some supercalifragilisticexpialidocious news! In a couple of days, I am heading back to LA for the Mary Poppins Returns premiere! Memories of watching the original Mary Poppins with my family came flooding back to me when I got the news. I am very honored to be chosen to attend this event.
Mary Poppins Returns
Have you seen the trailers for Mary Poppins Returns yet? If not check this out:
Our favorite nanny is back!
Mary Poppins is back to help the next generation of the Banks family find the joy and wonder missing in their lives following a personal loss. Emily Blunt stars as the practically-perfect nanny with unique magical skills who can turn any ordinary task into an unforgettable, fantastic adventure and Lin-Manuel Miranda plays her friend Jack, an optimistic street lamplighter who helps bring light—and life—to the streets of London.
I can’t imagine a better actress to play our beloved Mary Poppins than Emily Blunt. The casting of this movie has me very excited and I can’t wait to learn more about their time on set!
