Emily Blunt Debuts New 'Mary Poppins Returns' Content at D23!

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.
Mary Poppins Returns will be in cinemas next year - let's hope it's super (califragilisticexpialidocious).
While Disney was sharing its biggest news at the D23 Expo on Saturday, the studio gave fans a look at Emily Blunt as the new Mary Poppins. Following a family tragedy, Michael's three children - Annabel, Georgie, and John - are left joyless and in need of a spoonful of sugar.
The movie also stars Ben Whishaw as Michael Banks, Emily Mortimer as Jane Banks, Julie Walters as the Banks' housekeeper Ellen, with Colin Firth as Fidelity Fiduciary's William Weatherall Wilkins and Meryl Streep as Mary's eccentric cousin Topsy.
From there on out, there's more whimsy, color and humor as we see Mary begin to bring back the joy and wonder that had been missing in the Banks' lives.
"I found that I watched about 15 minutes of the original and then just stopped watching it because I needed to kind of try and pay homage to what Julie did but carve out new space for myself", Blunt said.
We've been given out first sneak peak at the sequal to the 1964 Disney classic Mary Poppins which stars Emily Blunt in the lead role. "In the teaser, her character says, 'Those things didn't really happen'". However, the subsequent adventures of Mary Poppins remained only on the pages of the seven other P.L. Travers' books.
Marshall added: "I was incredibly honored to be approached by Disney about directing a sequel". Until now. Mary Poppins Returns is drawn from the wealth of material in these additional books. "This is a brand new original film musical from top to bottom, which is very rare, and it is a wonderful opportunity to create something specifically for the screen". A single photo of Blunt in character was released (and went viral) earlier this year, giving us our first look at the reboot, which takes place 25 years after the original.
