Mary Poppins was released in 1964, so the wait for a sequel has been a long time coming. The teaser trailer to Mary Poppins Returns, featuring Emily Blunt as the titular character, has debuted and while Poppins doesn’t make an appearance towards the end of the 95 second clip, it is still a must see video.
For one, we get to see Hamilton’s Lin-Manuel Miranda navigate a kite and Mr. Banks (Ben Whishaw) softly exclaim “Mary Poppins, it is wonderful to see you.” Blunt immediately replies to the couple (Emily Mortimer plays Mrs. Banks) “Yes it is, isn’t it?” while looking at herself in the mirror.
It will be hard to match Julie Andrews’ iconic performance as Mary Poppins, but Blunt is more than capable of putting her own spin to the character. Co-starring Dick Van Dyke and Meryl Streep, Mary Poppins Returns is set for a Christmas release. Check out the teaser trailer and tell us what you think!
