When Disney shared the first official movie trailer for Mary Poppins Returns, barely any music was featured. Well, that situation has been rectified. It’s all about the tunes in a new promo for the highly-anticipated sequel. Emily Blunt is pitch perfect in the musical numbers. She’s absolutely the perfect choice to carry on the torch from Julie Andrews.
In the all new original musical and sequel, Mary Poppins is back to help the next generation of the Banks family find the joy and wonder missing in their lives following a personal loss. Blunt stars as the practically-perfect nanny with unique magical skills who can turn any ordinary task into an unforgettable, fantastic adventure.
Joining Blunt in the film is Lin-Manuel Miranda as Jack, an optimistic street lamplighter who helps bring light—and life—to the streets of London. They are joined by Ben Whishaw as Michael Banks; Emily Mortimer as Jane Banks; Julie Walters as the Banks’ housekeeper Ellen; Pixie Davies, Nathanael Saleh and introducing Joel Dawson as the Banks’ children, with Colin Firth as Fidelity Fiduciary Bank’s William Weatherall Wilkins; and Meryl Streep as Mary’s eccentric cousin, Topsy. Angela Lansbury appears as the Balloon Lady, a treasured character from the PL Travers books and Dick Van Dyke is Mr. Dawes, Jr., the retired chairman of the bank now run by Firth’s character.
Mary Poppins Returns arrives on December 19. Check out the new promo below, along with the movie trailer.
