Over the weekend, Disney finally dropped a first-look teaser for Mary Poppins Returns. The sequel to the classic Julie Andrews film will arrive in theaters on Christmas Day, a good 54 years after the release of the original. This time around, Emily Blunt is playing the titular magic nanny, and Lin-Manuel Miranda is soft-shoeing his way into this universe as the lovable chimney sweep, Jack.
You’ll find the first official teaser for Mary Poppins Returns at the top of this post. But that’s not all, folks, as the Mouse House also unveiled a new poster for the film:
“Mary Poppins Returns” stars: Emily Blunt as the practically-perfect nanny with unique magical skills who can turn any task into an unforgettable, fantastic adventure; Lin-Manuel Miranda as her friend Jack, an optimistic street lamplighter who helps bring light—and life—to the streets of London; Ben Whishaw as Michael Banks; Emily Mortimer as Jane Banks; and Julie Walters as the Banks’ housekeeper Ellen; with Colin Firth as Fidelity Fiduciary Bank’s William Weatherall Wilkins; and Meryl Streep as Mary’s eccentric cousin, Topsy. The film also introduces three new Banks’ children played by Pixie Davies, Nathanael Saleh and newcomer Joel Dawson. Angela Lansbury appears as the Balloon Lady, a treasured character from the PL Travers books and Dick Van Dyke is Mr. Dawes Jr., the retired chairman of the bank now run by Firth’s character.
