Some movies need sequels. They have underlying plot twists that need to be answered. Take Monsters Inc. for example. The creators thought a prequel was needed but not a sequel? What happened after the end of the movie when Boo saw Sully again? On the other hand, some movies shouldn’t have sequels. Like Toy Story Four. A movie following Woody and Bo Peep’s love story? No thank you. What about Mary Poppins returns? Was a sequel really needed?

The story starts with Michael and Jane Banks all grown up. Two lawyers show up at Michael’s house to tell him he has five days to pay back his loans, or his house would be repossessed. Michael’s wife had recently died, and he has been broken since then.  He couldn’t get a job and pay off the money right away, so he looked for another option. He had to find the missing certificate that shows proof of the shares his father left him in the bank. Meanwhile, Michael’s three kids are walking through the park, when the youngest spots a random flying kite. Curious, little Georgie Banks starts chasing after the old, beat up kite. The kite almost gets away, when a strange woman comes flying down with the other end of it. Michael and his sister receive the greatest surprise when their childhood nanny comes back for a little visit. 50 years later, and the sequel still tries to preserve the magical, fun-filled adventures.  Many Broadway fans would be excited to see Lin-Manuel Miranda- the creator of “Hamilton” and “In the Heights”, playing Jack. Along with Meryl Streep as Topsy. And of course Emily Blunt as Mary Poppins! Mary Poppins returns was a pretty good movie when I saw it with my dad. Sure a sequel wasn’t needed, but the story they came up with was acceptable.
