We are getting closer to the release of the upcoming Mary Poppins movie. And we’ve got a Mary Poppins Returns First Look thanks to Entertainment Weekly!
Check out this photo of Emily Blunt, who plays the title character in a showstopping lift in one of the new musical numbers, ” Trip a Little Light Fantastic.” In this number Blunt and Lin-Manuel Miranda, who plays a street smart lampligher, enjoy a musical jaunt through London!
Emily Blunt told Entertainment Weekly “She’s just such fun to play.” She went on to say, “The dancing is the thing I really had to learn. Lin and I are not trained dancers in any way, so that was the most arduous part. You see why dancers have the best bodies on planet Earth. You just pour with sweat all day.”
While this new film won’t forget the 1964 classic, they will go further into the eight book children’s series that P. L. Travers wrote. This new film finds the Banks children all grown up and having lost their childhood home thanks to economic difficulties. Michael (Ben Whishaw) also finds himself a window, trying to raise his three children alone, with the help of his sister, Jane (Emily Mortimer). We also get to meet more of the Bankes relative in this film, like Meryl Streep’s oddball cousin Topsy!
We can’t wait to see our Mary Poppins sweep back to 17 Cherry Tree Lane and add some adventure and whimsey to the Banks house again!
Mary Poppins Returns will hit theaters on December 19th – and you won’t want to miss it!
