Emily Blunt Debuts New 'Mary Poppins Returns' Content at D23!

The first look at the magical "Mary Poppins Returns" doesn't show much more than Emily Blunt and her legendary umbrella, but the movie, which takes place 25 years after the 1964 classic, promises adult versions of Michael and Jane Banks. The Disney-centric event that only comes around once every two years is here.

The material included the first look at the main cast in character, as well as glimpses of the characters played by Meryl Streep, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Angela Lansbury and, in something of a return engagement, original Poppins star Dick Van Dyke.

Avengers, Mary Poppins and Luke Skywalker brought star power to Walt Disney Co's annual D23 fan convention on Sunday, as the studio drummed up excitement for upcoming films including a live-action "Lion King", "Aladdin" and "Dumbo". "And we were very loyal to the books." .

Upcoming films include writer-director Ava Duvernay's star-studded reimagining of "A Wrinkle In Time", "Mary Poppins Returns", "Mulan" and "Dumbo". In this original musical sequel to the 1964 Mary Poppins, Mary and her friend Jack, an optimistic street lamplighter played by Lin-Manuel Miranda, embark on entirely new adventures with the next generation of the Banks family to help them find the joy and wonder missing in their lives. Blunt described taking on this role as "daunting".

"I found that I watched about 15 minutes of the original and then just stopped watching it because I needed to kind of try and pay homage to what Julie did but carve out new space for myself", telling the fans. Mary Poppins also introduces the children to a new assortment of colorful and whimsical characters, including her eccentric cousin, Topsy (Streep). "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 family has still fallen on hard times, menaced by a ruthless bank manager played by Colin Firth. The film is scheduled for release in theaters on Christmas Day of 2018.
