Chim Chim Cher-ee! Dick Van Dyke will have a cameo in the upcoming sequel to his classic movie, "Mary Poppins."
He revealed the news in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter for a series called "Creative Until You Die." As he told THR, "This one supposedly takes place 20 years later and the kids are all grown up. It's a great cast — Meryl Streep, Angela Lansbury and that guy [Lin-Manuel Miranda] from 'Hamilton.'"
It's unclear if Van Dyke will reprise his role of Bert, the chimney sweep. "Mary Poppins Returns" is set 20 years after the original in Depression-era London and focuses on the grown-up Banks children, Jane (Emily Mortimer) and Michael (Ben Whishaw). Emily Blunt plays the still-young Mary Poppins, with Miranda as a lamplighter named Jack. Also in the cast is Streep as Mary's cousin Topsy and Colin Firth as the president of a bank.
"Mary Poppins Returns" is set to open in theaters Christmas 2018.
