Mary Poppins: The Sequel
Laura Lee - July 22, 2018

Have You Earned Your Tomorrow

By Edgar Guest

Is anybody happier because you passed his way? Does anyone remember that you spoke to him today? This day is almost over, and its toiling time is through; Is there anyone to utter now a kindly word of you?

Did you give a cheerful greeting to the friend who came along? Or a churlish sort of "Howdy" and then vanish in the throng? Were you selfish pure and simple as you rushed along the way, Or is someone mighty grateful for a deed you did today?

Can you say tonight, in parting with the day that's slipping fast, That you helped a single brother of the many that you passed? Is a single heart rejoicing over what you did or said; Does a man whose hopes were fading now with courage look ahead?

Did you waste the day, or lose it, was it well or sorely spent? Did you leave a trail of kindness or a scar of discontent? As you close your eyes in slumber do you think that God would say, You have earned one more tomorrow by the work you did today?

Sometimes sequels and reboots get criticized,  however many fans are overjoyed about the new Mary Poppins soon to be released.  It’s been in the process for a while now, and an entire 54 years have passed since the original came out.

Disney’s original plan was to have the sequel released by Christmas 2018, however they have recently announced that it will be coming out an entire week earlier (December 19th, 2018).  This way we won’t have to leave our families on Christmas to go see the premiere.

The movie sounds and looks amazing, especially since Emily Blunt will be playing Mary Poppins. No one will ever be as legendary as Julie Andrews, but we’re sure she still will great.

Lin-Mannuel Miranda will be playing the role of Jack, a lamplighter. His career has truly grown in the past few years with Hamilton and his Oscar nomination.  But wait, it gets even better. Meryl Streep will also be starring in the new movie, as Mary’s cousin, Topsy Turvy Poppins.  Angela Landsbury will be the Balloon Lady,  and Colin Furth will be the president of Fidelity Fiduciary Bank.
 
Based on the trailer, the movie looks spectacular.
