Paddington (Ben Whishaw), now happily settled with the Brown family and a popular member of the local community, picks up a series of odd jobs to buy the perfect present for his Aunt Lucy's (Imelda Staunton's) 100th birthday, only for the gift to be stolen.
The Incredibles hero family takes on a new mission, which involves a change in family roles: Bob Parr (Mr Incredible) must manage the house while his wife Helen (Elastigirl) goes out to save the world.
Craig T. Nelson,
In Depression-era London, a now-grown Jane (Emily Mortimer) and Michael Banks (Ben Whishaw), along with Michael's three children, are visited by the enigmatic Mary Poppins (Emily Blunt) following a personal loss. Through her unique magical skills, and with the aid of her friend Jack (Lin-Manuel Miranda), she helps the family rediscover the joy and wonder missing in their lives.Written by
In the book, only Jane Banks is transported into the Royal Doulton Bowl, and the entire episode was much darker. Instead of a world of talking animals, she meets a nineteenth century family that tries to force her to become one of them, before Mary Poppins rescues her. See more »

Can you please get the door? I've got the plumbers here.
That was quick work, wasn't it?
[handing a mop and towels to Georgie]
Here, Georgie. Take them.
[the knocking on the front door continues]
Yes, I'm coming! Blimey.
[as she opens the door]
Ah! Good morning, mum.
They don't look much like plumbers to me.
I meant on the phone.
We are not plumbers, we are lawyers.

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 »
I can't begin to say how excited I was for this movie. I've been waiting over a year for it. We brought my daughter to see it with her friends for her 6th birthday. It was a complete disappointment. The start was slow, music was forgettable, the kids were scared during a few parts, and Emily Blunt was too cold for Mary Poppins. The movie was over two hours long. The kids were restless and never really got into it. One kid from our group wanted to go to the car instead of finishing the movie. I wanted to like this so bad. What a shame.
