A Special Look At Music And Magic From Mary Poppins Returns
Any that knows me knows I LOVE MARY POPPINS!!! I was watching A Wrinkle In Time earlier this year and screamed in the theater when I saw the preview for this movie. Mind you no one else knew it was Mary Poppins when it started but me. I am such a huge fan I knew from the first scene. Please enjoy this sneak peek.
