Goofs

In the London street scenes, several of the buses shown are too old for the 1930s setting. For instance, the buses are shown with 'outside' staircases to the upper deck, whereas those designs (from post-WWI) had been superseded by then by designs with enclosed staircases. See more »

Quotes

[from trailer]
Jane Banks: [to the children] When your father and I were young, we used to imagine Mary Poppins could do all *sorts* of impossible things! Those things didn't really...
Michael Banks: Happen?
Jane Banks: No, of course not.
Michael Banks: Ridiculous.
[They say this oblivious to the fact that Mary Poppins is sliding up the bannister again behind them]

Emily Blunt is a Powerhouse! Incredible Cast!!
19 December 2018 | by aaronvillagomezSee all my reviews

This is profoundly one of the years very best pictures! It is filled with pure bliss and the magic Disney has been aiming to possess is finally here and even better than expected. It is a genuine musical with great tunes and fun, poppy, meaningful lyrics that help tell the meaning of the story. Emily Blunt is outstanding and exceptional in this role as Mary Poppins, she makes the character her own and knocks it right out of the ball park with her excellent vocals and range! What a cast! The entire ensemble does an outstanding job working together and that is really how this film works is because of each meaning the character has to the story. Last but definitely not least, Rob Marshall does a fantastic job directing the entire film, there is no one else who could have revived the magic disney once had. I expect it to get nominated at the Academt Awards for Best Picture, Actress, Director and more! We should also expect to see Emily Blunt wins Best Actress at the Golden Globes and more! Extremely impressed and planning to see it in theatres for a second time. Highly recommend to see Christmas Weekend!
