Mary Poppins Returns To Cherry Tree Lane In The New Disney Movie Sequel

How do I move in?

When thinking of true Disney classics, Mary Poppins is definitely high on the list. Julie Andrews played a character every child wished would one day fly into their homes to sing "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious." Now that there's another chance for the magical nanny to enter our hearts, I'm ecstatic. Today, Mary Poppins Returns hits theaters, bringing her return to Cherry Tree Lane to the big screen in order to help the Banks family after a terrible tragedy.

Though it's been 54 years since Andrews's original film was released, the sequel, starring Emily Blunt, is set 25 years since the character's last visit. Because, of course, things naturally change over two-and-a-half decades, the home on Cherry Tree Lane has also gotten some subtle upgrades as well. Here are the ones I noticed while I watching the trailer on repeat—I'm excited, OK?

1 The original brown wood door has undergone quite the transformation.

Note the placement of the doorknob on the original house.

2 Today the front door is black, with several other differences.

With a knocker, a different knob (and placement), and what looks like a mail slot.

Also, the curtains at the bottom of the stairs have been traded out for floral ones.

And see what I mean about the light fixture? A similar version made its way upstairs in the second movie.

6 The bedrooms seem to have been upgraded as well, rightfully.

It appears the family decided to swap the bedroom color scheme, yellow curtains and blue wallpaper in the original.
