Emily Blunt dances in new ‘Mary Poppins Returns’ image

Disney has a new remake set for Christmas, Mary Poppins Returns, a new film starring Emily Blunt as the whimsical nanny. Blunt stars in a new pic, teasing a musical number and dance sequence.

Set some 25-odd years after the first film, Mary Poppins Returns brings us back to Cherry Tree Lane, where a grown-up Michael (Ben Whishaw), his three children, and his sister Jane (Emily Mortimer) mourn the death of a family member. Blunt’s Poppins appears with her trusty umbrella to remind the family how to embrace life once again — and how to dance…as seen in the photo below.

Entertainment Weekly debuted the new pic of Blunt in the middle of a show-stopping number with the lamplighters of London.

“Mary Poppins Retuns”

The 1964 Mary Poppins is a classic with the amazing Julie Andrews in the titular role. Now director Rob Marshall takes on the task of remaking the brand for a whole new generation.

Colin Firth will play a heartless bank manager named Mr. Wilkins with stars Julie Walters, Meryl Streep and Angela Lansbury. There is a new generation of Banks kids, John (Nathanael Saleh), Annabel (Pixie Davies), and Georgie (Joel Dawson) and a new chimney sweep: Jack (Lin-Manuel Miranda).

Dick Van Dyke will also be appearing in a minor role. Marshall (Into the Woods, Chicago) directs from the script by Finding Neverland writer David Magee.

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