Last night Disney dropped a new teaser for the upcoming Mary Poppins Returns. They also dropped a new teaser poster, which features star Emily Blunt looking frankly adorable as Mary Poppins.
We haven't seen much of Blunt in the title role, but judging from the little we've seen she appears to have captured the essence of Mary Poppins perfectly. This is one of those movies where if it hits, it's going to be one of the bigger movies Disney releases this year. This is a reminder that is comes out the same year as three Marvel movies and a Star Wars movie.
Summary: In Disney's "Mary Poppins Returns," an all new sequel with a fresh sensibility that celebrates the spirit of the original, Mary Poppins is back to help the next generation of the Banks family find the joy and wonder missing in their lives. Emily Blunt stars as the practically perfect nanny with unique magical skills who can turn any task into an unforgettable, fantastic adventure and Lin-Manuel Miranda plays her friend Jack, an optimistic street lamplighter who helps bright light– and life– to the streets of London.
Mary Poppins Returns, directed by Rob Marshall, stars Emily Blunt, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Colin Firth, Meryl Streep, Ben Whishaw, and Julie Walters. It will be released on December 25th.
