Hamilton creator Miranda plays Poppins' friend Jack, "an optimistic street lamplighter who helps bring light-and life-to the streets of London". There's Mary Poppins and she's... returning.
Director Rob Marshall revealed last week that Blunt was the only person he thought could re-create the Poppins character, originally portrayed by Julie Andrews in the original 1964 classic Mary Poppins.
In the story, our beloved Michael (played by Ben Whishaw) and Jane (Emily Montimer) are all grown up with children of their own, and after Michael suffers a personal loss, Mary Poppins re-enters their lives.
The Mary Poppins Returns full trailer is here, and everyone's favorite nanny is back and still practically flawless in every way. With "The Nutcracker And The Four Realms", "Ralph Breaks The Internet" and "Poppins" still to come, 2018 is already the second most profitable year in history for Disney movies.
Dick Van Dyke is making a return to the sequel, but this time he's taking on the role of his original character's son, Mr Dawes Jr - true Mary Poppins fans will remember Mr Dawes Sr died from laughing in the original film. I don't want it to be, 'Oh, here comes that Mary Poppins.' I don't want that.
Michael and Jane can hardly believe that Mary, the singing nanny with supernatural powers who visited them in their youth, has returned to their house on Cherry Tree Lane - and hasn't seemed to age a single day.
The trailer also offers a brief glimpse at some of the musical song-and-dance numbers, with music by Marc Shaiman and songs by Shaiman and Scott Wittman.
Disney has been teasing next chapter in the adventures of the umbrella clad nanny from the clouds for what feels like forever ― seriously, the first teaser dropped at the Oscars this year ― and now it's nearly here.
