This film exceeded my expectations and was quite entertaining. Emily Blunt and Lin-Manuel Miranda gave solid performances. I will say that, vocally, Emily Blunt is no Julie Andrews but that's setting the bar pretty high and, also, the musical writing wasn't as good as the original.

I wasn't really a fan of Mary Poppins as a child, but watching this movie has convinced me to revisit it. I adore both Emily Blunt and Lin-Manuel Miranda in general, and neither disappoints in their Mary Poppins Returns performance.

There is plenty to enjoy in the sequel to Mary Poppins. Emily Blunt is no Julie Andrews but her Mary Poppins is also practically perfect in every way and leads us and the new Banks children on extraordinary adventures as they try to save their house from the bank's greedy grasp.

Never saw Mary Poppins before, didn't think I'd like it, but it was quite delightful. I did zoom through the songs a few times.

I wanted to dislike it but I couldn't. It was excellent. Well done and not exactly like the first one but similar. I like the surprise character who shows up at the end. No spoiler.....

Great for families and kids or kids at heart.

A good follow-up to the classic movie. It's lovingly done and the acting is fine. The musical numbers are good but the songs don't quite measure up to the original. Still, it's definitely worth a look.

I'm very pleased and agree with a comment from May 16th.
In regard to how this was presented, remember we are in a different era, and
the plot went accordingly...with trying to vie for a viewing audience of the children of today.
The sequences of each song were very entertaining. We all know by now there will not be an Oscar here, but those in my home were happy with it.

Sad to say, I had high hopes for this one, but in the end couldn't even finish the movie. The plot was not 2+ hours worth of writing and just couldn't hold my attention.

Cute, but doesn't hold a candle to the original 1964 classic. Emily Blunt tries her best to channel her own 'Mary Poppins' but she often lacks the warmth and kindness of her predecessor, instead seeming more standoffish and prim; her scene where she speaks about 'where the lost things go' shows a glimmer of a warmer Mary, but not enough to carry the entire film.

Other highlights include a trip to the Royal Daulton Music Hall which comes from additional adventures in P.L. Travers' beloved series.

Watch and reminisce as you are reitnroduced to the grown-up children Mary Poppins originally entranced, as well as the incredible world that is entered into once more. We get to know more about Mary Poppins, and while the plot is not the strongest aspect of the film, the creativity, color, filmography, and pure delight make up for it. A wonderful sequel to the unsurpassed original, Mary Poppins Returns does appropriate homage to its' predecessor while at the same time colorfully taking on new life in the skilled hands of cast and crew. With subtle reminders of the original movie, as well as a plethora of guest stars (Dick Van Dyke, Meryl Streep, and Angela Landsbury are only a few), this is a delightful movie for fans of the original (as well as new fans) to enjoy. Perhaps the most satisfying moment is that of Dick Van Dyke's skillful dance number - done without aid by the talented 93 year old.

40 quotes already in IMDb. Thanks to the contributors. Like to add these two related to the film's best song "The Place Where Lost Things Go":

Oh, listen to the three of you. You're all worrying far too much. After all, you can't lose what you've never lost.
===
Nothing's gone forever, only out of place. So when we need her touch and loving gaze "Gone but not forgotten" is the perfect phrase. Smiling from a star
that she makes glow. Trust she's always there... Watching as we grow. Find her in the place... Where the lost things go...
