First look: Emily Blunt in ‘Mary Poppins Returns’

Disney is offering fans their first look at Emily Blunt in their film project: Mary Poppins Returns. Check out the photo below.

The plot was recently revealed to be set in 1930s London, with Poppins returning to help the Banks children from the first film, now fully grown and played by Ben Whishaw and Emily Mortimer. Blunt stars with Lin-Manuel Miranda, who plays a lamplighter named Jack.

Michael (Whishaw) suffers a personal loss, the nanny Mary Poppins (Blunt) re-enters the lives of the Banks family, and, along with the optimistic street lamplighter Jack (Miranda), uses her magical skills to help the family rediscover the joy and wonder missing in their lives. Mary Poppins also introduces the children to a new assortment of colorful and whimsical characters, including her eccentric cousin, Topsy (Meryl Streep).

“Mary Poppins Retuns”

Dick Van Dyke, who played Bert in 1964’s Mary Poppins, is confirmed to star as Mr. Dawes Jr., the chairman of Fidelity Fiduciary Bank, which is now run by William Weatherall Wilkins (Colin Firth). Deadline also confirmed that Angela Lansbury has a role in the film as the Balloon Lady.

Pixie Davies, Joel Dawson and Nathanael Saleh star as three new Banks children.

Mary Poppins Returns is being produced by John DeLuca (Chicago) and Marc Platt (La La Land) from a screenplay by Life of Pi‘s David Magee.

Miranda told The New York Times by phone from London: “I’m in the middle of a dream job dancing with Emily Blunt all day, and extremely grateful to be here.”

Mary Poppins Returns is scheduled for release Christmas Day 2018.
