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!

TRIGGER WARNING: This article contains sensitive content about depression and mental health.

As the stigma around mental health lessens (however slowly), people are more forthcoming about the problems they are facing. One of the most common mental health issues is depression.

Depression can affect many different types of people. Factors such as gender, race, nationality, and even age have no bearing on whether someone suffers from depression or not.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), globally, "...an estimated 3.8% of the population affected, including 5.0% among adults and 5.7% among adults older than 60 years..."

Depression displays in certain patterns, such as mood changes, physical difficulties, and social isolation. However, depression manifests differently in different people and feels different to different people.

Reddit users divulged what depression felt like to them when Redditor iodineseaspray asked:

"What does depression feel like to you?"

Some of this is sure to sound familiar.
