Mary Poppins Returns was lovely. Both the leads (Blunt, Miranda) did a fantastic job. There were moments of delight, especially the Royal Doulton Music Hall. But, the music was just good, not great. It falls short of the original.

@cleverdevil I think we're all spoiled by the Julie Andrews portrayal and music, and will probably be unsatisfied as a result with anything that tries to fill those shoes.

@arush living up to the magic of Julie Andrews is near impossible. That said, I don’t think the performers were an issue. Emily Blunt did an amazing job, as did Lin-Manuel Miranda. The music itself was the main issue for me: it was good, but not great!
