After a long wait, the official first trailer for Disney's Mary Poppins Returns is finally here. Watch the Marry Poppins Returns trailer below. The film is directed by Rob Marshall (who famously brought Chicago to the screen) and opens December 19.
Now a whole new generation can experience the magic of Mary Poppins this Christmas when Mary Poppins Returns hits theaters. With Emily Blunt playing the iconic Mary Poppins and Broadway legend Lin-Manuel Miranda playing the children and Mary's friend, Jack, the sequel was certainly stacked with talent in its male and female leads.
Florence turns deadly, unleashing torrential floods on Carolinas
Charlotte and Asheville in North Carolina, and Roanoke, Virginia, could also be in for heavy rains as Florence plods inland. Forecasters predicted severe flooding for parts of southeastern North Carolina and northeastern SC starting Sunday.
However, after getting our first look at the full trailer for Mary Poppins Returns, we're feeling pretty confident this movie will feel like a fun, fresh, new adventure that recaptures the fun and whimsy we felt after watching the movie from 1964 while also staying true to the original's heart.
The film also stars Ben Whishaw as Michael Banks; Emily Mortimer as Jane Banks; Julie Walters as the Banks' housekeeper Ellen; Pixie Davies, Nathanael Saleh and introducing Joel Dawson as the Banks' children, with Colin Firth as Fidelity Fiduciary Bank's William Weatherall Wilkins; and Meryl Streep as Mary's eccentric cousin, Topsy. It's a jolly holiday indeed.
The story was thrust into the spotlight a few years ago as well when Disney released Saving Mr. Banks, following Walt Disney (Tom Hanks) trying to convince author P.L. Travers (Emma Thompson) to adapt her beloved story.
