The action of the new picture about Mary Poppins takes place in London, 25 years after the events of the original cinematic work with Julie Andrews in the lead role. The production presents the further story of a magical nanny who takes care of the Banks family.
In the title role, we will admire Emily Blunt. As the actress assures, her character is to be faithful to the literary original.
