First teaser with Emily Blunt in ‘Mary Poppins Returns’ lands at D23 for excited fans

Emily Blunt took the stage for the presentation of Mary Poppins Returns at D23 with director/producer Rob Marshall, sharing a new motion poster for the much anticipated sequel to the 1964 classic Disney film, Mary Poppins. 

“I needed to try to pay homage to Julie Andrews, but carve out a new space for myself. And we were very loyal to the books,” said Blunt to a crowded room of enthusiastic fans.

Marshall shared, “I was incredibly honored to be approached by Disney about directing a sequel. This is a brand new original film musical from top to bottom, which is very rare, and it is a wonderful opportunity to create something specifically for the screen.”

The motion poster of Blunt as the practically-perfect nanny in a cobalt blue nanny coat and red hat with her iconic parrot head umbrella in hand and has been released on Facebook. Check it out at the bottom.

From that post: Emily Blunt is Mary Poppins in the upcoming sequel, . The brand new film opens in theatres December 2018. 

Blunt and Marshall shared an exclusive look at a new teaser trailer with the D23 audience, which has yet to hit the internet.

The new trailer, which received an enthusiastic ovation from the crowd, shows Blunt floating in on her umbrella as per the original 1964 film.

Blunt plays with cartoon birds in her hand and is seen synchronized dancing in the streets of London a la Dick Van Dyke’s original chimneysweep number. Van Dyke himself also made an appearance in the trailer, along with Colin Firth, who plays heartless bank manager Mr. Wilkins.

Andrews herself will not appear in the film, stating publicly that “This is Emily’s show, and I really want it to be Emily’s show. I don’t want it to be, ‘Oh, here comes that Mary Poppins.’ I don’t want that. I really want her to take this and run with it, because she will be brilliant.”

Also starring are Lin-Manuel Miranda, Ben Whishaw, Emily Mortimer, Julie Walter, Meryl Streep and Angela Lansbury.

Michael (Ben Whishaw) and Jane (Emily Mortimer) reminiscing about their childhood in that teaser, which will likely be released soon.

“Those things when we were younger, they didn’t really happen?” Jane says.

“No,” Michael replied.

“Ridiculous,” Jane says… while behind them, Mary is floating up the banister.

Mary Poppins Returns is set for a December 25, 2018 release date.
