Craig T. Nelson,
In Depression-era London, a now-grown Jane and Michael Banks, 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 Jack, she helps the family rediscover the joy and wonder missing in their lives.Written by
The working title, "Mary Poppins Returns," is also the reference to the title of the second Mary Poppins book, "Mary Poppins Comes Back," released in 1935. Elements from that book were already adapted in the original Mary Poppins (1964), including the scene with the measurement of Jane and Michael, flying kites in the park, the scene with the merry-go-round, etc. See more »
The gaslights used in the movie are all naked flames. By the 1930s, gaslights used mantles, which gave off a lot more light for less gas and didn't smoke the glass covers. Also, gaslights were largely controlled by clockwork (still used in historic areas today in London and other European cities), so the leeries' main job would have been maintenance: mantle replacement and winding the clockwork rather than daily lighting/dousing.

Total opposite of supercalifragilisticexpialidocious
It took all of me not to get up and walk out...and I've sat through some bad movies! But the story & music were just awful. Also, I never write reviews but considering this was a Disney classic, I was greatly disappointed not to mention bored half the time. Love Emily Blunt, just not this movie.
