The New Trailer for Mary Poppins Returns Reveals a Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious Emily Blunt

Emily Blunt's practically flawless nanny arrives back in the lives of the Banks children in the first full-length trailer for Mary Poppins Returns, the sequel to the 1964 Disney classic.

Set 25 years after the original film (which confirms that Mary is an ageless wonder), Mary Poppins Returns will see the well-dressed nanny once again visiting London's No. 17 Cherry Tree Lane, which is now home to all-grown-up Michael Banks (Ben Whishaw), who's grieving the loss of his wife and struggling to keep himself (and his three kids) afloat in the face of encroaching ruin. With Emily Blunt playing the iconic Mary Poppins and Broadway legend Lin-Manuel Miranda playing the children and Mary's friend, Jack, the sequel was certainly stacked with talent in its male and female leads.

As they fly the kite, the clouds literally part and Mary Poppins descends to Earth from the heavens, shocking Michael and Jane with her sudden return.

Mary Poppins Returns flies into theaters on December 19. Other co-stars include Colin Firth, Angela Lansbury, and Julie Walters.

Mary Poppins Returns is directed by Rob Marshall.

At least three Palestinians , including a child, were killed Friday by the Israeli army near the Gaza-Israel buffer zone. Israel's military said their evidence shows the 11-year-old was hit by a rock thrown by protesters.

Marshall directs from a screenplay by David Magee and screen story by Magee & Marshall & John DeLuca, based on the Mary Poppins Stories by PL Travers.

All in all, this is everything we want in a sequel for a beloved film, and we can't wait for the East wind to blow and bring Mary Poppins back into our lives.

Along with the trailer, Disney released a new poster and several new images from the film.

Dick Van Dyke, who portrayed Bert in the classic 1964 film, also features in the trailer as Mr Dawes Jr, and we're pleased to note he's still dancing away in his 90s. "I really want her to take this and run with it because she will be brilliant".
