Emily Blunt in Magical Full Trailer for Disney's 'Mary Poppins Returns'

Emily Blunt in Magical Full Trailer for Disney's 'Mary Poppins Returns'

Set 25 years after the original film (which confirms that Mary is an ageless wonder), Mary Poppins Returns will see the well-dressed nanny once again visiting London's No. 17 Cherry Tree Lane, which is now home to all-grown-up Michael Banks (Ben Whishaw), who's grieving the loss of his wife and struggling to keep himself (and his three kids) afloat in the face of encroaching ruin.

All that's missing is Dick Van Dyke - but not for long.

With up-to-date CGI wizardry and new songs, this new film has a lot to live up to but it looks like there's going to be plenty of the original charm and imagination, as Mary takes the children to far away lands, "filling their heads with stuff and nonsense", and reminding us all what it's like to be a child. With Emily Blunt playing the iconic Mary Poppins and Broadway legend Lin-Manuel Miranda playing the children and Mary's friend, Jack, the sequel was certainly stacked with talent in its male and female leads.

Prepared to take 'strongest action' for not complying with Iranian sanctions
Brent is heading for a 1.8 percent gain this week, while WTI is on track for a 1.5 percent increase. The global benchmark rose on Wednesday to its highest since May 22 at $80.13.


Check out the new Mary Poppins Returns trailer below.

Marshall directs a script from David Magee, with a screen story by Magee, Marshall and John DeLuca. Dick Van Dyke will make an appearance in the movie (though not as Bert), the estate of P.L. Travers, the author of the books, has given the movie their stamp of approval, and the queen herself, Julie Andrews has praised the decision to make another film and cast Emily Blunt in the beloved role. Blunt brings so much warmth and intelligence to all her work, and clearly comes through in the trailer. I don't want it to be, 'Oh, here comes that Mary Poppins.' I don't want that.

I mean, I expected nothing less from the Queen of Genovia. Although the crew has their housekeeper Ellen (Julie Walters) on hand for any domestic disasters and Jack by their side to bring the smiles, no one quite compares to the flawless and fun Mary Poppins.
