D23 2017: New Motion Poster For MARY POPPINS RETURNS

But in that crowd at the D23 Expo - think of it as the Disney cousin to Comic-Con - one little woman stood head and shoulders above the lot of them: a British nanny named Mary Poppins.

Disney offered the above teaser of the upcoming film, which returns to the world of 1964's Mary Poppins, to wet the whistles of fans. However, the footage was accompanied by a live orchestra performing original new music from the film conducted by its composer, Marc Shaiman.

On a day when billion-dollar budgets were supposed to rule the stage, the first glimpse of images from Disney's Poppins sequel - Mary Poppins Returns - were met with the greatest applause, cheering and a standing ovation from the crowd.

Aside from Blunt, Colin Firth has also joined the project, set to play Bank president, William Weatherall Wilkins, and Hamilton's Lin-Manuel Miranda has been cast as Bert's equivalent - a street lamp lighter called Jack - even Meryl Streep has been given a cameo. Lin-Manuel Miranda is seen dancing with a ladder as a chimney sweep. "Every person we approached said yes immediately". And we will see Mary Poppins return to the now grownup Jane Banks, Michael Banks, and his three children after they suffer a personal loss. "I needed to try to pay homage to Julie Andrews but carve out a new space for myself", said Blunt.

Taking to Twitter, Walt Disney Studios shared a video of Emily Blunt in character, captioning it: "Emily Blunt is Mary Poppins in the upcoming sequel, #MaryPoppinsReturns. 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". However, the subsequent adventures of Mary Poppins remained only on the pages of the seven other P.L. Travers' books.

The Mary Poppins sequel is scheduled to hit theatres in December 2018. Until now. Mary Poppins Returns is drawn from the wealth of material in these additional books.
