Mary Poppins Returns is the new sequel to the original Mary Poppins film that we’ve all be waiting for. Fans have been extremely keen for the reboot, and and these sneaky pics popping up will have you feeling supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.
The film features the now grown up Jane and Michael Banks and their three children and the good ol’ Mary Poppins comes to visit to cheer them up after a personal loss. What a legend.
These photos and a snippet of a video are all we’ve got to go on for now. The shots are the first that we’ve seen of Blunt in the iconic role but from the looks of things, it seems like she’s got it sorted.
MARY POPPINS 2 Nuevas fotos de Emily Blunt y Lin Manuel Miranda desde él rodaje de "Mary Poppins Returns" Yaaas! ___ #marypoppins #marypoppinsreturns #emilyblunt #linmanuelmiranda #merylstreep #colinfirth #news #noticias #london #cine #disney #music #julieandrews #dickvandyke #indienerd #popculture #firstlook
Judging by the photos above, it looks like the cast is on a bicycle.I have no idea how it’s holding everyone up, but it’s presumably magic that’s doing the job. Lin-Manuel Miranda is looking super stoked to be on the bike, so that just confirms my theory that it is magic.
A sneaky Insta video shows just what the film plans to do with the Chimney Sweeps, so fans should be excited for that. I know I am.
However, Mary Poppins Returns isn’t set to come out until Christmas NEXT YEAR.
I know good films take time, but I’m not entirely sure that I want to wait an entire year to see Colin Firth, Blunt and the OG (AKA Dick Van Dyke who featured in the first film). I dunno what Van Dyke is going to do, but fingers crossed he makes references to the whole ‘back in my day’ and fans laugh with delight about how clever he’s being.
Ah well, now we have another reason to count down until Christmas.
