Last night in Toronto, Talkies Network was invited to take part in the Canadian premiere for Disney’s highly anticipated, 54-years in the making, Mary Poppins Returns! Set in 1930s London, the story follows Michael (Ben Whishaw) and Jane Banks (Emily Mortimer), who are now grown up. After Michael has a personal loss, Mary Poppins (Emily Blunt) comes back into the lives of the Banks family where she is joined by a street lamplighter named Jack (Lin-Manuel Miranda).
The premiere was an incredible experience to be a part of and near the end, Jane Banks herself, Emily Mortimer talked briefly with me about what it was like to re-create the magic of the first film as well as what was the most challenging part of filming this project. Check out the video below! Thank you to Walt Disney Studios Canada for inviting myself and my team to such a momentous occasion!
