Only one more year until Mary Poppins Returns flys into theaters. The film will focus on the lives of adult Michael and Jane Banks. Mary Poppins (Emily Blunt) revisits the siblings and this time helps care for Michael’s three children.
The sequel has an all-star cast including Meryl Streep, Colin Firth, and Lin-Manuel Miranda, and a special appearance from Dick Van Dyke. With the film being released on Christmas Day 2018, we still have a while until we’ll see the trailer, however Disney has released some images of the cast.
Disney shared this tweet during the D23 Expo this summer giving us a glimpse of Mary Poppins herself.

I’ll give you a moment to just gaze at this photo of Lin-Manuel Miranda…
Ok, are you back? Great. Miranda will be playing Jack, Mary Poppins lamplighter friend. He’s sure to be the hip-hop version of Burt.
Here’s another of Jack with Mary Poppins and the kids. This one is very “Step In Time”-esqe.
This presumes to be the grownup Jane and Michael with Michael’s children and Mary Poppins.
Mary Poppins Returns will be released in theaters on Christmas Day 2018.
