Mary Poppins Returns: Our first proper look at Emily Blunt

When they look up in the sky and the clouds part, they are stunned at the sight of Mary Poppins, umbrella in hand, hovering overhead.

Disney have released the first moving poster of Emily Blunt as the practically ideal nanny for Mary Poppins Returns - a sequel to the much-loved 1964 classic. The film also stars Lin-Manuel Miranda as lamplighter Jack, Meryl Streep as Mary's eccentric cousin Topsy, and Angela Lansbury as the Balloon Lady.

Disney offered the above teaser of the upcoming film, which returns to the world of 1964's Mary Poppins, to wet the whistles of fans.

Now, we get to see Mary in action-sort of.

The footage encapsulated the lives of Jane and Michael Banks, who live with their three children during the Great Depression in the United Kingdom. "And we were very loyal to the books", Emily said. "I wanted to pay homage to Julie and then carve out my own niche and do my own version of her".

She hit her second shot at the par-4 17th about six feet from the cup and made birdie to take a two-shot lead at 11-under. With a powerfully fluid swing, she is fifth on tour in driving distance, slamming it out there more than 274 yards a pop.

Director Rob Marshall and Emily Blunt took the stage together to present the sequel at the D23 Expo in Anaheim, California. "She's just unbelievable", Blunt said at the D23 expo. I just had to do my version of her'. Blunt looks happy to be playing the iconic character, and is sure to give an incredible performance in the sequel.

Marshall revealed that he was unaware that Mary Poppins author P.L. Travers had penned seven other novels featuring the character until he was approached about this movie.

The Mary Poppins sequel is scheduled to hit theatres in December 2018.

Emily Blunt stars as Mary Poppins in Mary Poppins Returns. "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 story takes place 20 years after the original and also stars Lin-Manuel Miranda as Jack the lamplighter, Meryl Streep as Mary's odd cousin Topsy, and Angela Lansbury as the Balloon Lady, according to Entertainment Weekly.
