Kidnapping wolves, evil bankers, and yet somehow it’s the exact same story. Nostalgia Critic takes a look at how this sequel/reboot is less than practically perfect in every way. Let’s take a look at Mary Poppins Returns.

  1. I HAVE PLANS FOR YOU, First Commenter.

  2. Funny enough, I didn’t see this movie because it came out the same month as Aquaman. It looks like I made the right choice. I thought the live-action remakes of Alice in Wonderland and the Jungle Book was good but that may be because I hate the original animated ones. They just had the evil wolf because they wanted an action scene. Usually, I love action scenes, but it seems like Mary Poppins 2 is the only movie that I WOULDN’T want an action scene in. Also, I love ALL the Marvel references in this review. Fantastic!

  3. I’m gonna have to disagree with you on this one, Critic.

    Nothing can ever replace the original, but like all fairy tales, they need to be retold, if they want to survive on. Mary Poppins Returns is definitely no original Mary Poppins, but it can still stand on its own and does imitate some of the original’s charms and whimsy.

    And did you forget that PL Travers hated the movie? (only later on to get soft on it), she and Disney never got along. And frankly, Critic, you criticizing the remake/sequel (even when you can be right about Disney ruining it), does echo the same criticism Travers had about the original.

    Must be a never ending cycle.

    Also, I fear you can be a little blinded by Nostalgia too much. I know I can, but I try not to let it rule me.

  4. This is the same nonsense they said about Return to Oz being dissimilar to the Judy Garland Wizard of Oz.
