Mary Poppins arrives in a crowded holiday season, occupying the spot Disney has reserved for Star Wars the last three years. It will have December 19 and 20 all to itself, before a glut of other movies crash in on its party, including DC's Aquaman and the Transformers spin-off BumbleBee. If that weren't enough competition alone, James Cameron and Robert Rodriguez's long awaited adaptation of Alita: Battle Angel is going to edge in on the excitement, along with the Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly reunion comedy Holmes and Watson. And there's Back to the Future director Robert Zemeckis bringing up the rear with true-life drama Welcome to Marwen.
To say this holiday season is one crowded marketplace is an understatement. But we're sure everyone's favorite nanny isn't afraid. We'll get to see Mary Poppins flying high above the skies of London with her trusty umbrella soon enough. Until then, here's the official trailer and poster for Mary Poppins Returns direct from Walt Disney Pictures.
