Wielding the flying umbrella and the limitless handbag this time around is Emily Blunt, who made a bigger name for herself earlier this year in A Quiet Place. Now we see her in a nicer, quainter, more fantastical environment – and it really suits her. Mary Poppins returns after 25 years to see the Banks children all grown up, lovingly played by Emily Mortimer and Ben Whishaw, and to help raise the next generation of Bankses.
The trailer shows a younger Cockney chimney-sweep, played by Lin-Manuel Miranda, as well as a cameo appearance from Dick van Dyke himself (though, regrettably, not as a chim-chiminey chimney sweep). The film also stars Julie Waters, Colin Firth, and Meryl Streep.
Mary Poppins Returns will be released on 21st December. Watch the trailer below.
