More than five decades after the original “Mary Poppins” hit theaters, the magical nanny is returning in the aptly-titled “Mary Poppins Returns,” with Emily Blunt taking over the role originated by Julie Andrews. You gotta imagine the folks in charge over at the Mouse House are at least considering the possibility of turning “Mary Poppins” into an honest-to-god franchise. Emily Blunt has even suggested she’d be happy to return for more.
If there are “Mary Poppins” movies on the horizon, it would be understandable to wonder if, in the modern franchise tradition, whether or not “Mary Poppins Returns” has a post-credits scene to tease the future of the series. Using bonus scenes after the credits was popularized by the Marvel Cinematic Universe and has since become a staple of franchise films in general. So why not “Mary Poppins Returns” as well?
So, given that line of thought which no doubt has led you to this page — is there anything extra after the credit that you should stick around for, or is it safe to bail from the theater if you need to?
The answer is: you can leave if you must. “Mary Poppins Returns” does not include a post-credits scene of any kind.
Of course, we always encourage cinemagoers to stick around for the credits in appreciation for the handiwork of the many, many people involved in bringing any film to life, but if you need to hit the bathroom or are otherwise in a rush once the credits roll, rest assured that you won’t miss any bonus content.
“Mary Poppins Returns” is directed by Rob Marshall and stars Blunt alongside Lin-Manuel Miranda, Ben Wishaw, Emily Mortimer, Colin Firth, Meryl Streep and Julie Walters, with Dick Van Dyke also making an appearance. The film serves as a direct sequel to the original film, with Wishaw and Mortimer playing the grown-up versions of those kids.
