Disney just released a teaser video to what we can expect in the upcoming Mary Poppins Returns.
The beloved nanny has been gone for a while but when Mary does return, Jane (Emily Mortimer) and Michael Banks (Ben Whishaw) are all grown up. Suffering a personal loss, the whole family could use some time to reconnect with their sense of childlike wonder. So with the spin of a vase, Mary gets to work bringing back the old magic that once dazzled movie-goers.
As Mary Poppins (Emily Blunt), the magical nanny, ferries the Banks children off to fantastical worlds tucked inside their bathtub, the latest Disney preview offers a snippet from the new music that awaits in the upcoming sequel to the 1964 original film.
Composer and co-lyricist Marc Shaiman thought up a fresh score for the upcoming film with lyricist Scott Wittman. “Trip a Little Light Fantastic” is set to be the hog musical number of the film and features Mary flying through London with lamplighter Jack (Lin-Manuel Miranda) and the three kids, Annabel (Pixie Davies), Georgie (Joel Dawson), and John (Nathanael Saleh).
Directed by Rob Marshall with a cast featuring Colin Firth, Meryl Streep, Angela Lansbury, and Dick Van Dyke, Mary Poppins Returns will open in theaters on Dec. 19.
