These new photos should make every Poppins fan feel expialidocious.
Entertainment Weekly’s latest cover story offers up first look images of the much anticipated Mary Poppins Returns, starring Emily Blunt as the beloved magical nanny.
From the sequel set 25 years after the events of the original classic, these photos include Blunt, Lin-Manuel Miranda as Jack (Bert the chimney sweep’s former apprentice), the grown-up siblings Michael and Jane (Ben Whishsaw and Emily Mortimer), and Michael’s three kids.
Also included are three artist’s renderings of the production design, as well as two set photos, one of director Rob Marshall (Into the Woods, Chicago) and Meryl Streep at a singing rehearsal with the cast. Streep plays Mary’s cousin, Topsy.
Not pictured are co-stars Colin Firth, Angela Lansbury, Julie Walters, and Dick Van Dyke, so more first look goodies are still to come.
With songs by the Tony-winning team of Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman (Hairspray), the arrival of Mary Poppins Returns is still far off: December 25, 2018.
