Disney has revealed the first Mary Poppins Returns trailer, which shows Emily Blunt slipping into the shoes of the world’s most famous fictional nanny.
Mary Poppins Returns is set in 1930s depression-era London (the time period of the original novels) and is drawn from the wealth of material in PL Travers’ additional seven books. In the story, Michael (Ben Whishaw) and Jane (Emily Mortimer) are now grown up, with Michael, his three children and their housekeeper, Ellen (Julie Walters), living on Cherry Tree Lane.
After Michael suffers a personal loss, the enigmatic nanny Mary Poppins (Emily Blunt) re-enters the lives of the Banks family, and, along with the optimistic street lamplighter Jack (Lin-Manuel Miranda), uses her unique magical skills to help the family rediscover the joy and wonder missing in their lives.
Mary Poppins also introduces the children to a new assortment of colourful and whimsical characters, including her eccentric cousin, Topsy (Meryl Streep).
For a first proper look, the Mary Poppins Returns trailer is pretty impressive with stunning visuals and a nice overall tone to the film. Undoubtedly it will be a film to watch this Christmas. The film also stars Colin Firth, Angela Lansbury and Dick Van Dyke.
