    As much as I love Lin Manuel Miranda, they put him in a lot and with an actor as experienced as Lin, he takes the show way to easily. Which sucks because the scenes with Mary and the kids are actually some of my favorites, but then sudden "oh hi Jack" and suddenly the scene is taken which I don't think Lin was trying to do but he's easily a person who could be in the original Mary Poppins, he's expressive and whimsy enough and it really shows when he's in a scene with everyone who takes the scene seriously. He knows how to use the space, use the room, use the props and it sucks cause he needs to downplay so he's not the lead.

    Why they must always ruin a perfect film with a pointless, unimaginative remake, I have NO idea. Seriously.

    What might have made a better Mary Poppins Returns story?
    No kids.
    Think about it. Michael got married, but he and his wife couldn't conceive. So they both turned into miserable hermits who don't have fun. They don't walk through parks, don't have tea parties on ceilings, don't have any fun at all because that's what adults do. They NEED kids to show them how to have fun. That would be the mission of Mary Poppins. She comes back to break them out of their gray, dull, lifeless slump. Do they conceive? Does the movie leave on that happy note? Nope, let it be mysterious. Poppins leaves, the couple holds each other and smiles, and.....fade to black.

    I figure, after watching this, I should share my thoughts, but I doubt you or anyone will read it, though whatever it's a RU-clip Comment: Yeah, Disney has fallen from grace in my eyes, they don't care about their audience (personally I blame China for this), and only care about the money they wanna take from you, almost in a similar nature to the lead banker trying to sucker Michael out of his money. I feel like Disney won't change unless we give them a reason to, such as not going to see any of their shitty films.
    Also, since you referenced it, yeah I figure, I should also make this comment to Endgame: It's yeah, Endgame was a sign I should cash my chips in and abandoned the MCU entirely. I liked Endgame, but here's the thing, there was far too many pandering, virtue signaling for me to enjoy the movie. I'm not against strong female leads, but in Avengers' case, yeah, it's unearned, nothing about that scene (where all the female characters show up to fight Thanos) made sense, why did they abandon their positions to help the supposedly powerful female character, Captain Marvel, when they could be helping their fellow man fight more aliens? You know like a Team, where your Gender doesn't matter, neither does your skin-color, as long as we're all fighting for the same cause: Protecting our loved ones, our world, our right to exist. Yeah, it's over, MCU and Disney films are far too pandering for me to enjoy them anymore, and even worse, they're extremely lazy about it. Since Spider-man is gone, and the only characters I actually have an investment in are Ant-man and Guardians of the Galaxy, though I'm waiting for them to fuck up again, so I can shrug and say "I'm done..." and I'll probably go more in-depth, in like my own reviews on the MCU, and why I think they're doing more harm than good, and only furthering, in what I love to quote from my favorite animated character: "The delusions of separation" yeah in highlighting the difference between men and women, black and white people, you're only causing more harm than unity. Anyway, I rambled enough, but I was happy to see this video talk about why Disney is getting lazier as time goes on.
