The director of Mary Poppins returns is London in the nursery of the Banks, family and we’re about to enter Adventure.

Now we haven’t seen it for a long time, and I really like the Artistry behind it. It actually cost a lot more to do this way and also was much more time-consuming. It took over a year, but it was important that we actually brought animators by Mark Addy and obviously this is Emily, Blunt and lin-manuel and are three fantastic. Kids are in this film.
