As Walt Disney World debuts a new Mary Poppins Returns-themed restaurant, Aaron joins his close friends Albert Gutierrez and Jonathan Harvill for a DEEP dive into the 2018 movie musical starring Emily Blunt and Lin-Manuel Miranda. Their conversation was recorded in early 2019 but is only debuting now.
In this, the first of a multi-part discussion, On Main Street shares general impressions of the film and considers some of its biggest criticisms. (The next episode will look closely at each of the movie’s songs.)
Total Runtime — 46 minutes
