Get to Know the Main Cast and Characters of MARY POPPINS RETURNS

Opening tomorrow, "Mary Poppins Returns" promises to tell fans of the old film a new story about the next generation of the Banks family that will not only be nostalgic but features new music that will make this new adventure feel fresh and different. That in itself was a huge challenge but that is only half of the story. Without the right actors, all the hard work would be in vain. "Mary Poppins Returns" features an impressive cast of acclaimed actors, led by Emily Blunt, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Colin Firth and Meryl Streep. More information on each of their characers below:
Emily Blunt plays the title role of MARY POPPINS, the practically-perfect nanny whose unique magical skills can turn any ordinary task into a fantastic adventure. Returning once again to the home of the Banks family having not aged a single day, the enigmatic governess helps the next generation of the Banks family find the joy and wonder missing in their lives following a personal loss.
An old friend of Mary Poppins, JACK (Lin-Manuel Miranda) is a charming and eternally optimistic lamplighter. Together, they take the Banks’ children on a series of whimsical adventures and introduce them to colorful characters, bringing life, love and laughter back into their home.
Colin Firth portrays WILLIAM WEATHERALL WILKINS who runs Fidelity Fiduciary Bank, the financial institution where Michael Banks currently works. While he appears to be a congenial and altruistic mentor to Banks, he is actually duplicitous and shrewd, as he is in the process of foreclosing on the Banks’ home.
A distant cousin of Mary Poppins with whom she has a contentious but lovable relationship, COUSIN TOPSY (Meryl Streep) runs a fix-it shop which turns upside down the “Second Wednesday” of every month. Quite eccentric with an untraceable accent, she discovers the value of seeing things from a “new point of view.”

In Disney’s “Mary Poppins Returns,” an all new original musical, Mary Poppins is back to help the next generation of the Banks family find the joy and wonder missing in their lives following a personal loss. Emily Blunt stars as the practically-perfect nanny with unique magical skills who can turn any ordinary task into an unforgettable, fantastic adventure and Lin-Manuel Miranda plays her friend Jack, an optimistic street lamplighter who helps bring light—and life—to the streets of London. The film also stars Ben Whishaw, Emily Mortimer, Julie Walters, Pixie Davies, Nathanael Saleh and, Joel Dawson.

"Mary Poppins Returns" opens in Philippine cinemas nationwide on Tuesday, January 8.
