The first teaser for Disney’s Mary Poppins, which stars Hamilton’s Lin-Manuel Miranda, is here.
The film returns to the world of 1964’s Mary Poppins, but with a new twist. The story takes place in London, right in the middle of the Great Depression. Michael, who we all knew as a child in Mary Poppins, is now an adult widower. He has three children of his own, and his sister Jane helps to take care of them. The family has still fallen on hard times, menaced by a ruthless bank manager played by Colin Firth.
It is then that Mary Poppins, played by Emily Blunt, comes into their lives; that’s where the adventure truly begins. The cast and characters of Mary Poppins Returns include Lamplighter Jack (Lin-Manuel Miranda); Topsy, Mary’s cousin (Meryl Streep); and Hollywood greats Angela Lansbury, as a balloon seller, and Dick van Dyke, returning as the bank chairman. It is directed by Rob Marshall.
Mary Poppins Returns will be released on Dec. 25.
