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!

Believe it or not, Canadians don't live in igloos or freeze to death all year round. If you go to Germany, it's highly unlikely that every German you meet will be cold and uninviting. Hop over to the United Kingdom and you're not going to run into tons of people with terrible teeth and bad hygeine.

These are called stereotypes, my friends, and it's best you leave them at the door. People were more than willing to strike down some stereotypes about the countries they know and love after Redditor HelloThere577 asked the online community,

"What are some false stereotypes about your country?"
