Decades after her original visit, the magical nanny returns to help the Banks siblings and Michael's children through a difficult time in their lives.
A fan petition was made to get Michael Rooker to cameo in the movie, after his role as Yondu in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017) had him imitating Mary Poppins.
Everything is possible, even the impossible.
The gaslights used in the movie are all naked flames. By the 1930s, gaslights used mantles, which gave off a lot more light for less gas and didn't smoke the glass covers. Also, gaslights were largely controlled by clockwork (still used in historic areas today in London and other European cities), so the leeries' main job would have been maintenance: mantle replacement and winding the clockwork rather than daily lighting/dousing.
In a reprisal of the credits gag from the original, Dick Van Dyke is at first credited as "Nackvid Keyd", only for the credits to unscramble themselves again.
