One of the most memorable moments in the Mary Poppins Returns trailer, which turned out to be just as delightful in the actual movie, comes when she launches herself backwards into a magical bathtub with a joyful smile.

Many fans assumed the impossible shot was accomplished with CGI effects (as are most these days), but a recent Twitter thread from @CafeFantasia revealed director Rob Marshall used practical effects to give the moment his desired effect.



Making Mary's dive looked real involved a gigantic set with a built-in slide!

The entire sequence is even more impressive when one sees the amount of work that went into it.


The bathtub slide also looks more than a little bit fun...

Many movie aficionados held up the clip as evidence of the superiority of practical effects over CGI.


Others thought Mary's plunge was pretty joke-worthy!


Several Twitter users noted that Emily Blunt has had an especially bathtub-centric year at the movies.


Blunt actually told the story of filming the scene in a recent interview.

And the bathtub-portal wasn't the only illusion accomplished in the new Mary Poppins film!

It seems director Rob Marshall and company went out of their way to rebuild as much of the magic as they could from the original.


If possible, die-hard Disney fans seemed to love the magic even more after watching the video.


Be sure to catch Mary Poppins Returns in theaters before she flies away!

I don't miss high school or the people in it. People who seem to have peaked in high school also weird me out. How? Why? I can definitely tell you that life got much more interesting the older I got (my 20s were way more fun than any of my time in high school). If you were to ask me if I have any regrets, I suppose I would say that I wish I had been more assertive and stood up for myself more. Depression has a way of complicating goals like that, though. Let me tell you: It feels nice to be so much healthier than I was then.

When we are on the outside looking in, it can feel so obvious that a relationship is doomed.

When we offer advice to friends, family, or people oversharing at a party, the correct next move often seems wildly obvious: get out of that relationship.

Some people don't take breakups very well. And those that don't can sometimes engage in behavior that others might view as bothersome, unsettling, even toxic.

Others engage in abusive behavior during the relationship, a major red flag that some people might not take seriously until it's too late.
