About the film: Set in 1930s London, 25 years after the events of the original film, Mary Poppins, the former nanny of Jane and Michael Banks, returns one year after a family tragedy. Now an adult with three children, bank teller Michael Banks learns that his house will be repossessed in five days unless he can pay back a loan. His only hope is to find a missing certificate that shows proof of valuable shares that his father left him years earlier. Just as all seems lost, Michael and his sister receive the surprise of a lifetime when Mary Poppins — the beloved nanny from their childhood — arrives to save the day and take the Banks family on a magical, fun-filled adventure.
The film is rated PG and has a running time of 2 hrs 17 minutes.
