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

We hope you enjoy this special image-in-motion of Emily Blunt as Mary Poppins from Disney's original musical Mary Poppins Returns, an all-new sequel to the 1964 Mary Poppins, which features a fresh sensibility while celebrating the spirit of the original. However, the footage was accompanied by a live orchestra performing original new music from the film conducted by its composer, Marc Shaiman. Following a family tragedy, Michael's three children - Annabel, Georgie, and John - are left joyless and in need of a spoonful of sugar.

On a day when billion-dollar budgets were supposed to rule the stage, the first glimpse of images from Disney's Poppins sequel - Mary Poppins Returns - were met with the greatest applause, cheering and a standing ovation from the crowd. Angela Lansbury appears as the Balloon Lady and Dick Van Dyke as Mr. Dawes Jr., the retired chairman of the bank now run by Colin Firth's character.

Lin Manuel Miranda, who won the Pulitzer Prize for creating and starring in Broadway's historical, hip-hop musical Hamilton, will play a new character named Jack, a street lamplighter. "And we were very loyal to the books", said Blunt. Blunt looks happy to be playing the iconic character, and is sure to give an incredible performance in the sequel. It will see the Banks children, Jane and Michael, all grown up and played by Emily Mortimer and Ben Whishaw.

"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. I just had to do my version of her'. However, the subsequent adventures of Mary Poppins remained only on the pages of the seven other P.L. Travers' books. Mary Poppins Returns is happening, and Disney has finally released a teaser for the live-action reboot.

Don't expect the same old Poppins to return, though.
