Mary Poppins Returns is coming to Blu-ray, 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray, and streaming services in March, according to a press release issued recently by Walt Disney Studios.

The movie will be available on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, DVD, and On Demand on March 19, 2019. It will be available on streaming services on March 12th.

The sequel to the 1964 classic Mary Poppins opened in theaters December 19, 2018 and took the #2 spot in the box office (behind Aquaman) and stayed in the Top 10 for six weeks. It has received four Academy Award nominations, including for the original song, "The Place Where Lost Things Go" sung by star Emily Blunt.

The press release from Walt Disney Studios includes the following plot summary for the movie:

In “Mary Poppins Returns,” Michael Banks (Ben Whishaw) — just a child when Mary Poppins first visited 17 Cherry Tree Lane — is now a grown man raising his children Annabel (Pixie Davies), John (Nathanael Saleh) and Georgie (Joel Dawson) with help from his sister Jane (Emily Mortimer). Times are tough in Depression-era London but the winds begin to change and the enigmatic governess, whose unique magical skills can turn any ordinary task into a fantastic adventure, enters the lives of the Banks family once again, having not aged a single day. Teaming up with an old friend, Jack, they take the Banks children on a series of whimsical adventures, encountering colorful characters like Mary’s eccentric Cousin Topsy (Streep), Jack’s lovable band of leeries and bank executives William Weatherall Wilkins (Colin Firth) and Mr. Dawes Jr. (Van Dyke) — bringing life, love and laughter back into the home.
