'Mary Poppins Returns' trailer teases something brewing, about to begin

More than 50 years after Julie Andrews made a cinematic icon out of P.L. Travers’ magical caretaker comes a new adventure, “Mary Poppins Returns.” Walt Disney Pictures has just released the first teaser trailer that you can check out in the player above.

“Mary Poppins Returns” stars Emily Blunt as the practically perfect nanny with unique magical skills who can turn any task into an unforgettable, fantastic adventure; Lin-Manuel Miranda as her friend Jack, an optimistic street lamplighter who helps bring light — and life — to the streets of London; Ben Whishaw as Michael Banks; Emily Mortimer as Jane Banks; Julie Walters as the Bankses’ housekeeper Ellen; with Colin Firth as Fidelity Fiduciary Bank’s William Weatherill Wilkins, and Meryl Streep as Mary’s eccentric cousin, Topsy. The film also introduces three new Banks children played by Pixie Davies, Nathanael Saleh and newcomer Joel Dawson. Angela Lansbury appears as the Balloon Lady, a treasured character from the P.L. Travers books, and Dick Van Dyke is Mr. Dawes Jr., the retired chairman of the bank now run by Firth’s character.

The film, set for release on Christmas day, is directed by Rob Marshall from a screenplay by David Magee and screen story by Magee & Marshall & John DeLuca based upon The Mary Poppins Stories by P.L. Travers. The producers are Marshall, DeLuca and Marc Platt with Callum McDougall serving as executive producer and the music is by Marc Shaiman with songs by Shaiman and Scott Wittman.
