Emily Blunt Is Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious In 'Mary Poppins' Teaser

Disney Mary Poppins Returns Trailer Oscars

Disney has premiered the first official trailer for Mary Poppins Returns starring Emily Blunt and Lin Manuel Miranda

We get to see Lin-Manuel Miranda as Jack, Mary's lamplighter friend - unlike Bert, he won't be a chimney sweeper - and get glimpses of Jane and Michael Banks all grown up!

Though characters may not look familiar to us, their names and celebrity portrayals certainly are.

'Mary Poppins!' exclaims Michael (played by Ben Whishaw) and his sister (Emily Mortimer).

Disney's 2012 hit film Wreck-It Ralph was both a critical and commercial success, grossing more than $471 million at the worldwide box office and earning an Academy Award nomination for Best Animated Feature. Colin Firth and Meryl Streep will also star as Fidelity Fiduciary Bank's William Weatherall Wilkins and Mary's eccentric cousin, Topsy respectively.

The film will be directed by Rob Marshall (Into the Woods, Chicago), working off a screenplay written by David Magee (Life of Pi).

We feel and think it'll be tough because other teams, important clubs, with very good players can fight with us too. Technology is supposed to improve the overall on-field product, eradicating completely human error.

It was at this point where I was thinking, "Oh f*** you, Disney", as I thought they weren't actually going to show Emily Blunt as the magical nanny. Van Dyke will appear in the reboot as the retired chairman of the bank that's now run by Firth's character.

The trailer introduces Emily Blunt as the new Mary Poppins, who's back in London 25 years after the events of the first movie.

As we mentioned in earlier posts, the sequel picks up 20 years after the original film.

Due to Disney's current mood for embracing the past, the House of Mouse will soon give us a (very) belated sequel to the 1964 beloved classic Mary Poppins.

Mary Poppins Returns floats into theaters Christmas Day. Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman ("Hairspray") will write new songs for the film, with Shaiman composing an original score.
