First Teaser for Disney's 'Mary Poppins Returns' Starring Emily Blunt
This Christmas, a new story begins. "It is wonderful to see you!" Disney has debuted the first teaser trailer for the new Mary Poppins Returns, starring Emily Blunt as a young Mary Poppins. Set in Depression-era London, a now-grown Jane and Michael Banks, along with Michael's three children, are visited by the enigmatic Mary Poppins. Through her unique magical skills, and with the aid of her friend Jack, played by Lin-Manuel Miranda, she helps the family rediscover the joy and wonder missing in their lives. The cast includes Ben Whishaw, Emily Mortimer, Colin Firth, Meryl Streep, along with Julie Walters as the Banks' housekeeper Ellen. The film also introduces three new Banks’ children which are played by Pixie Davies, Nathanael Saleh, and newcomer Joel Dawson. This teaser doesn't really have a lot of footage, but should still get you a bit more excited for this. Disney has another massive hit on their hands, for sure.
