Mary Poppins Returns ★★★★

And another year of movies begins.

I absolutely loved this film. Slower pacing, wonderful child acting, stoic messaging, great music.

Wasn't blown away by Lin (as much of a fan as I am) and Emily Blunt was fantastic.

Very theatrical acting in places that could've been more traditional.

Animation sequence was very cool.

Costume design was marvelous. Oscar worthy?
