After months of teases, the Mary Poppins Returns trailer has finally dropped—and the movie looks like it’s absolutely as magical as you’d imagine it would be! Read on for the delightful sneak peek at the new movie.
Even though Disney released a Mary Poppins Returns teaser trailer this summer, this full look at this darling film is only adding to the excitement. Emily Blunt stars in the role made iconic by actress Julie Andrews—and she looks and sounds beyond perfect for the titular role. Mary Poppins Returns isn’t just a re-imagined reboot of the original film—it’s an entirely new story and we can’t wait to see it.
The newest installment in the Poppins franchise finds the title character returning to London 24 years after the first story took place. The ever-awesome nanny is again caring for the Banks children, but this time, as grown adults—and their kiddos, too.
Along with Blunt, the film stars Lin-Manuel Miranda (Broadway’s Hamilton) as Jack, Emily Mortimer (HBO’s The Newsroom) as Jane Banks and Ben Whishaw (the voice of Paddington Bear) as Michael Banks. The cast also includes appearances by silver screen greats such as Angela Lansbury, Meryl Streep and Colin Firth.
Throwing back to the original, actor Dick Van Dyke makes a return in this new version of the film. Don’t be disappointed when you see Van Dyke though. Sadly, he won’t reprise his role of Bert. Instead, he’ll play Mr. Dawes Jr., the son of the banker in the original. Still, it’s a great way to bring in a special touch of the original Mary Poppins film into the new story for a new generation of Disney fans.
