Emily Blunt dazzles in practically flawless moving poster for Mary Poppins Returns

Emily Blunt dazzles in practically flawless moving poster for Mary Poppins Returns

Director Rob Marshall and Emily Blunt took the stage together to present the sequel at the D23 Expo in Anaheim, California.

The filming of the new Star Wars film is complex and expansive.

After debuting the first photo of Emily Blunt as Mary Poppins earlier this year, which subsequently went viral, Disney has now released a image-in-motion video of the actress in the role.

If screams were worth box office dollars, the film would already be soaring past both Frozen and Beauty and the Beast. Until now. Mary Poppins Returns is drawn from the wealth of material in these additional books. As a live orchestra set the scene with original music from the film, the audience was reintroduced to the same house, the same kite, and even the same Banks family, but in a very different time.

The film's cinematographer is Australian Dion Beebe, whose credits include Chicago (2002), Memoirs of a Geisha (2005) and Into the Woods (2014).

Mary Poppins Returns will be in cinemas next year - let's hope it's super (califragilisticexpialidocious).

Julie Andrews and Dick Van Dyke in the 1964 original. Michael, a child in Mary Poppins, is an adult widower, with three children, helped along with his sister Jane.

Everybody's favorite magical umbrella-toting nanny is coming back, but not everyone is happy about it.

In the original, the character was played by Dame Julie Andrews; Andrews will not appear 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.

And lest you're anxious about Blunt doing justice to Julie Andrews, she knows she could never replace the original Mary Poppins.

Lin Manuel Miranda, who won the Pulitzer Prize for creating and starring in Broadway's historical, hip-hop musical Hamilton, will play a new character named Jack, a street lamplighter.
