"Bedknobs and Broomsticks" is the new Disney production from the team that made "Mary Poppins," and it has the same technical skill and professional polish. It doesn't have much of a heart, though, and toward the end you wonder why the "Poppins" team thought kids would like it much.

Such lavish animation threaded with flesh and blood characters is a wonderful, transporting idea for children, a lost art amongst the clever-clever majesty of CGI.

Yes, there are similarities between Bedknobs and Poppins. But most of those are fairly obvious and expected considering who was involved. They are essentially two very different films.
