Oscars 2018: Emily Blunt's 'Mary Poppins Returns' debuts first look we are excited

Mary Poppins is back people! During the Oscars which was held on March 4, people got a chance to see what they can expect from Emily Blunt's upcoming musical, 'Mary Poppins Returns'. The trailer which was dropped during the commercial break introduced Hamilton‘s Lin-Manuel Miranda as lamplighter Jack and Emily Blunt as the magical nanny and we have to say, it looks incredibly exciting.

“Mary Poppins, it is wonderful to see you,” Ben Whishaw as Mr. Banks said in the mini clip of the show that was released. Emily as Poppins replies to the couple, “Yes it is, isn’t it?” 'Mary Poppins Returns' serves as a sequel to the 1964 Disney original. Just like the classic film in which Mary Poppins helped the Banks children as they go overcome the personal loss in the 1930s, the new installment will also be based on P.L. Travers’ classic books.

Even though the plot will be similar to the one people saw in the classic, this installment will feature all-new musical numbers, a whole new cast of characters. Meanwhile, the scene is set to take place in Depression Era London time period. 

Previously, in an interview with ET, Emily had responded to the reaction they had received from people when they got to know that a sequel to the movie is going to be made. “The audience is so receptive and sweet and joyful, so they are the best kind of platform for you to launch a clip of your film,” she said at that time.

“We just finished a month ago, so it's still very real and present for me, and, you know, very new, so it was very moving to see it with reacting like that.” At the same time, during an interview with EW, director Rob Marshall had spoken about the responsibility they all had in their hand to make the film a success, keeping in mind the response the classic 1964 Disney movie had received. 

“The bar is so high for this,” he said. “But to be able to walk in the footsteps of this beautiful story about a woman who brings magic to this family that’s looking for wonder and hope and joy in their lives… I feel a great responsibility and reverence every day. We all feel it. We’re just lifting it up to get there with the right intentions behind it.”
