Mary Poppins Returns

Image of theatrical release poster, showing some of the characters and events in the film 

This showed up on Netflix, and since I was mainly interested in the animated sequence (populated entirely by anthropomorphic characters), I gave it a watch, and it was hardly a money-grab, since P.L Travers actually wrote sequels to her original book with the eponymous nanny, and the music, consisting of entirely original numbers, isn't recycled, either. It's very stylistically similar to the original film, and the ending song sort of parrots the "Let's Go Fly a Kite" number, but with balloons instead.
