The Art of Mary Poppins Returns gallery exhibit at the Disneyland Opera House is the practically perfect place to find costumes, props, memorabilia and concept art from the combination live action-animated film sequel coming to movie theaters this Christmas season.

The limited-time exhibit featuring items from the London sets and Shepperton Studios sound stages where the movie musical was filmed is now open in the lobby of the Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln theater in advance of the Dec. 19 debut of "Mary Poppins Returns."

The Art of Mary Poppins Returns exhibit includes a red two-piece wool suit and matching skirt with a white polka dot cotton blouse, blue polka dot bow tie and blue polka dot leather gloves worn by Mary Poppins star Emily Blunt in the movie.

Costume designers chose the red suit and skirt combo for Mary Poppins in the musical number set to the song "Trip a Little Light Fantastic" so that her outfit would pop out in the dimly-lit scene amid 50 dancing lamplighters, according to D23, a Disney fan magazine.

The Art of Mary Poppins Returns exhibit includes a brimmed dark blue hat with a silk blue bow and feather plume worn by Blunt in the movie. Seven copies of the hat along with seven robin-tipped hat pins were made for the movie, according to D23.

Costume designers create 448 original costumes for "Mary Poppins Returns," according to production notes for the film. Multiple versions of each costume piece in the movie were created for the actors, their photo doubles, acting doubles and stunt doubles.

The black umbrella with the distinctive wooden parrot head handle that Mary Poppins uses to fly is also included in the Disneyland display.

The parrot head handle was hand-sculpted by an artist and scanned to create a resin mold for duplicate handles, according to D23. Each of the parrot head handles were hand painted before copper plating and etched brass highlights were added. Some versions of the umbrella include animatronic mechanisms to make the parrot head handle appear to speak in the film.

The patchwork carpet bag with polka-dot lining that Mary Poppins reaches into to turn ordinary tasks into fantastic adventures gets a prominent spot in the exhibit. Multiple copies of the carpet bag were created, including one with a hole in the bottom for passing through large objects, according to D23.

Also in the exhibit: An emerald green kite with gold trim patched with Times of London newspaper clippings that Mary Poppins uses to make her dramatic entrance in the sequel.

Artwork in the "Mary Poppins Returns" exhibit includes a framed illustration of the Royal Doulton Music Hall tent glowing at night in shades of red and purple. In the film, Mary Poppins' parasol turns into the giant tent housing the turn-of-the-century vaudeville music hall.

Set in 1930s London, the "Mary Poppins Returns" movie musical finds the practically-perfect nanny with magical skills returning to help the next generation of the Banks family following a personal loss. The new movie follows the family of Michael Banks, one of the children from the original movie who has become a single father of three kids.

The film stars Blunt in the title role made famous by Julie Andrews in the original 1964 movie. Lin-Manuel Miranda plays a lamplighter named Jack who was a protege to Bert, played by Dick Van Dyke in the original film. The Poppins sequel also stars Colin Firth as bank executive William Weatherall Wilkins, Meryl Streep as Mary Poppins' eccentric cousin Topsy, Angela Lansbury as the magical balloon lady and Van Dyke as Bert's son, retired bank chairman Mr. Dawes Jr.

Disney's original 1964 "Mary Poppins" film was nominated for 13 Academy Awards, including best picture. Andrews won the Oscar for best actress and the Sherman Brothers took home awards for best original score and best original song, "Chim Chim Cher-ee."

The no-nonsense nanny was first introduced in the 1934 "Mary Poppins" children's book written by P.L. Travers.
