'Mary Poppins Returns' Official Trailer (2018) | Emily Blunt, Lin-Manuel Miranda

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.

All in all, this film looks delightful, and I think that Emily Blunt is perfectly cast as Mary Poppins. I don't want it to be, 'Oh, here comes that Mary Poppins.' I don't want that.

A clever bit of editing moves the trailer to show Michael's son Georgie (Joel Dawson) running through a patch of grass with a kite in his hands as Jack (Lin-Manuel Miranda), a friendly lamplighter and the former apprentice of Bert the Matchman (Dick Van Dyke) from the 1964 Julie Andrews-starring Mary Poppins, helps pull it down from the wind-whipped clouds.

With "Chicago" director Rob Marshall at the helm, the sequel looks like the follow-up to the classic tale we deserve.

GOP Demands Feinstein Release Letter After Kavanaugh Accuser Identifies Herself
The Telegraph contacted the White House for comment on Ms Ford's claims, but had no response at the time of going to press. Many Democrats have called for a delay in the vote, and a handful of Republicans have opened the door to that possibility.

While a previous teaser trailer introduced Ben Whishaw and Emily Mortimer as adult versions of Michael and Jane Banks, the unruly children Poppins whipped into shape in the original, this is our first substatial look at Blunt as the practically ideal heroine of P.L. Travers' iconic novels. The producers are DeLuca, Marshall, and Marc Platt with Callum McDougall serving as executive producer. We also get a small taste of Blunt's singing chops, as she warbles to Michael's mourning kids that "Nothing's gone forever, only out of place", and an ambitious animated sequence (a la the original's "Jolly Holiday") is teased.

This movie is shaping up to be a brilliant new adventure with Mary Poppins, and even better, the sequel seems to have the approval from key players involved in the first film. If that weren't enough competition alone, James Cameron and Robert Rodriguez's long awaited adaptation of Alita: Battle Angel is going to edge in on the excitement, along with the Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly reunion comedy Holmes and Watson.

Mary Poppins Returns is out in the United Kingdom on 21 December 2018.
