We are where nostalgia lives

54 years after the original Mary Poppins graced our movie screens, the beloved Dick Van Dyke is back in the new movie Mary Poppins Returns. He is now 92 years old but looks exactly the same as he did in the original movie. How is this possible, you might ask?

If you are a fan of the original Mary Poppins movie, you might remember that Dick Van Dyke also played Mr. Dawes Sr. in the film. However, in the first movie, they used prosthetics to age him. This time, he doesn’t need any because of his age and it is remarkable how similar his character looks in both movies!
