The Mary Poppins Returns soundtrack has music by Marc Shaiman, with lyrics by Shaiman and Scott Wittman. “When it came time to go in the room and actually write the songs, that’s where the ‘petrified with fear’ part comes in,” Shaiman told Deadline. “But once we realized that this was our chance to almost speak for generations, through music and lyrics—not to mention everyone else on the film—to say thank you to [original Mary Poppins songwriters] the Sherman Brothers, to show our love for the film and all the men and women who worked on it or appeared in it…Once we could switch that switch in our hearts and souls and brains and think of it as a way for us to express our love for it…”
“That’s kind of what the movie is about, isn’t it?” Wittman added. “It’s about remembering that innocence in you and that time when you had no snark and no irony. Once the story had been defined, because Mary’s such the architect of everything, the songs had to move the story along…It was all very collaborative, a very lovely process, and then we had Emily and Lin as part of that process. Emily was making a movie in New York, and she would come to us so we could tailor these things—these moments, these songs—on her, as well as Lin, who was in Hamilton at the time.”
In Mary Poppins Returns, “the mysterious Mary Poppins returns to Depression-era London to visit Jane and her brother Michael, now a father of three, and helps them rediscover the joy they knew as children.”
Mary Poppins Returns flies into theaters on December 19, 2018.
