From IMDb: “In Depression-era London, a now-grown Jane and Michael Banks, along with Michael’s three children, are visited by the enigmatic Mary Poppins following a personal loss. Through her unique magical skills, and with the aid of her friend Jack, she helps the family rediscover the joy and wonder missing in their lives.”

Poster Rating: D+

Review: Disney’s poster department shouldn’t be earning a paycheck with its poster designs because the white backgrounds and prominent figures might accentuate them, but they are far from appealing.

Trailer Rating: B

Review: The trailer teases each characters with some success, establishing this as a natural follow-up to the original film while feeling rather different, especially in its more naturalistic use of colors. It will be interesting to see if they do better at revealing the film’s musical side before its actual release or if it hedges its bets the way The Greatest Showman did. That is even if it has musical elements and considering everything involved, it must have them.

Oscar Prospects:

The original Mary Poppins was one of the most nominated films in Oscar history. Can the far-removed sequel replicate that success? it depends on how good the film actually is; however, I suspect it will fall far short of the original film’s success.
