Aside from Blunt, Colin Firth has also joined the project, set to play Bank president, William Weatherall Wilkins, and Hamilton's Lin-Manuel Miranda has been cast as Bert's equivalent - a street lamp lighter called Jack - even Meryl Streep has been given a cameo.

A first look at "Mary Poppins Returns" showed Emily Blunt's take on the singing, no-nonsense nanny with magical powers made famous in the 1964 musical starring Julie Andrews. Lin-Manuel Miranda is seen dancing with a ladder as a chimney sweep.

Lonzo Ball had his best game after ditching Big Baller Brand
We are talking about an exhibition that used to be played in high school gyms with about 20 fans in the stands just 10 years back. Dennis Smith Jnr paced the Mavericks with 21 points (7/13 FG) and six assists, while Yogi Ferrell added 15 points and five dimes.


"It's all about family, that's what's so powerful about it", Fisher said of the film in interviews taped before her sudden death in December. Set 25 years after the first film, the sequel finds the Banks children, Jane (Emily Mortimer) and Michael (Ben Whishaw) now adults and dealing with grown-up issues, including money and the widowed Michael raising three children of his own. "And we were very loyal to the books". "I needed to try to pay homage to Julie Andrews but carve out a new space for myself", said Blunt.

Emily Blunt stars as Mary Poppins in Mary Poppins Returns. She also added that her version of Mary is a little more "acerbic and odd and vain" like the character is in the books. "This is a brand new original film musical from top to bottom, which is very rare, and it is a wonderful opportunity to create something specifically for the screen".
