It’s been an exciting day if you are a fan of Disney Movies! Earlier, the final trailer for “The Nutcracker and the Four Realms” was released. Now we are happy to share a photo of Lin-Manuel Miranda starring in the upcoming “Mary Poppins Returns” as Lamplighter Jack.
The photo, an exclusive to Empire Online, shows Manuel reprising the role of the chimney sweep played by Dick Van Dyke in the original movie. Check out the photo below:
Also starring in “Mary Poppins Returns” is Emily Blunt as Mary Poppins and music composed by Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman. Shaiman and Wittman are known for their work for the Broadway smash hit, “Hairspray.”
Director of the movie, Rob Marshall, told Empire Online, “This is a very fragile world where there’s easily a loss of hope and wonder. A lot of people find those words simplistic, but I think that’s what keeps you going. To tell a story of [the] discovery of joy and magic was a reason I signed on. It’s a time for musicals.”
“Mary Poppins Returns” lands in theaters on December 19, 2018.
