During the Oscars on Sunday night, Disney dropped the new teaser trailer for their upcoming sequel, Mary Poppins Returns.
The teaser starts off by descending on an English neighborhood. a familiar kite flies from the trash, and is eventually found by a young child, who starts to fly it. He and Lin-Manuel Miranda’s character pull at the kite in the stormy weather, only to see a familiar silhouette emerge from the clouds above.
It was at this point where I was thinking, “Oh f*** you, Disney,” as I thought they weren’t actually going to show Emily Blunt as the magical nanny. Luckily for us, in the little snippet after the title cards, we see an older Michael and Jane Banks, telling her how great it is to see her. We finally see Emily Blunt’s take in motion, as she responds, “Yes it is, isn’t it?” with overly-enunciated T’s.
Below is the official synopsis for Mary Poppins Returns:
“Mary Poppins Returns stars: Emily Blunt as the practically-perfect nanny with unique magical skills who can turn any task into an unforgettable, fantastic adventure; Lin-Manuel Miranda as her friend Jack, an optimistic street lamplighter who helps bring light—and life—to the streets of London; Ben Whishaw as Michael Banks; Emily Mortimer as Jane Banks; and Julie Walters as the Banks’ housekeeper Ellen; with Colin Firth as Fidelity Fiduciary Bank’s William Weatherall Wilkins; and Meryl Streep as Mary’s eccentric cousin, Topsy. The film also introduces three new Banks’ children played by Pixie Davies, Nathanael Saleh and newcomer Joel Dawson. 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 hits theaters on December 25, 2018.
