New Images From Mary Poppins Returns

With filming now close to wrapped up on Mary Poppins Returns, the follow-up to the 1964 Disney original based on P.L. Travers’ books, more imagery from the sequel has begun to appear. Check out some new pictures of the film, courtesy of Entertainment Weekly.

Into The Woods‘ Rob Marshall has is directing the film, working from a script by David Magee that draws on material from Travers’ other Poppins novels. Set roughly 20 years after the first film, the story this time finds Mary (played this time by Emily Blunt) headed back to the Banks family in Depression-era London to find that her charges Jane (Emily Mortimer) and Michael (Ben Whishaw) Banks have now grown up. Michael has three children of his own, and they all need a little help re-discovering the joy in life after a personal loss.

She’ll have the aid of lamplighter Jack (played with typically theatrical ability by Lin-Manuel Miranda, who in his picture seems to be channelling Les Miserables) and cousin Topsy (Meryl Streep). Colin Firth, Angela Lansbury and Julie Walters are all part of the cast for this one, with original Mary co-star Dick Van Dyke popping up for a gor-blimey cameo.
