The film's biggest singing and dancing number, "Trip a Little Light Fantastic," took two weeks to film, sometimes with up to 50 dancers on screen at the same time. The exteriors of this eight-minute sequence were filmed at Middle Temple in London to enjoy its cobbled streets, arcades, and famous passages. The stage set consisted of five different levels, including a three-story fountain, a bridge, a greenhouse, and 25 hybrid electric and gas streetlights. Five cameras were used to capture the scale of the scene including a fixed camera, two cranes, an aerial camera, and a camera mounted on a traveling dolly. Twenty-eight street lamps equipped with a rotating base and sections adapted to the dance movements were specially created for the number, as well as 18 ladders made of metal, rubber, and balsa. The team also bought 100 BMX that were later aged. See more »
When Cousin Topsy performs a handstand during her dancing routine, her earrings do not dangle down to the ground. This shows the scene was filmed with her putting her hands on a surface above her head and subsequently being rotated 180 degrees in post-production. See more »

In a reprisal of the credits gag from the original, Dick Van Dyke is at first credited as "Nackvid Keyd", only for the credits to unscramble themselves again. See more »
Thank you Mary Poppins for warmly reminding us that anything is possible
Mrs. Shullivan and I treated ourselves to a special early Christmas present by attending the opening night of Mary Poppins Returns. Our anticipation for this night was more than just rewarded, we received a very pleasant reminder that although we are more than half a century old we are all still children at heart if we just allow our imaginations to wander as when we were children.
Emily Blunt was perfectly cast as Mary Poppins as was Lin-Manuel Miranda as Jack the Lantern lighter. The story line surrounds the now adult Michael Banks (Ben Whishaw) who lost his wife just a few years ago and is trying to raise his three (3) young children in the original Banks family home at 17 Cherry Tree Lane. Michael's sister Jane (Emily Mortimer) is single, never married, and has her own apartment while she fights for the rights of the low income workers.
Michael Banks three children are Anabel,John and the youngest Georgie. The three Banks children love their father and sooner than they should have to worry about losing their home through a bank foreclosure , Mary Poppins magically appears. Mrs. Shullivan and I, as well as the rest of the theaters audience let out a noticeable sigh of relief because we realized that the magic of a Walt Disney movie is now upon us, and we were not disappointed in our faith in Mary Poppins. Quite the contrary, the evening was perfect as the films songs were beautiful, the dance numbers choreographed and animated to as many animals as were on Noah's Ark, the cinematography magical and the story of Michael and Jane Banks and the children that warms one's heart.
We especially loved the Banks childrens first afternoon bath with Mary Poppins and their most colorful and animated underworld adventure with song and dreams of a magical world. Just believe and anything is possible!
Loved it! A perfect 10 out of 10!
