Official 'Mary Poppins Returns' Trailer Is Practically Perfect in Every Way
Are you ready for several spoonfuls of nostalgia?
Disney just released the full official trailer for "Mary Poppins Returns," which arrives in theaters December 19.
It's pure magic.
This new original musical/sequel stars Emily Blunt as Mary Poppins, as she returns to the now-grown Banks children in their time of need.
The trailer starts with a memory of kite flying, leading to the return of Mary Poppins herself. "As I live and breathe," says her old friend Jack, played by Lin-Manuel Miranda.
We do get a glimpse of a new song, along with Mary's no-nonsense-cheekiness and some truly magical old school animation.
Here's the full synopsis from Disney:
