She looks amazing!

Monday’s aren’t so bad, especially when a teaser for a film we have been patiently waiting for drops.

'Mary Poppins Returns' was announced last year and everyone has been waiting for something from Disney to keep us going until it's release.

The original film came out in 1964 with Julie Andrews playing Mary Poppins. 

Now, Emily Blunt has taken on the role and we expect nothing less than supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.

The film will show what happens when Poppins reunites with Jane and Michael Banks who are now adults with families of their own.

There is a family tragedy and Michael’s own children, Annabel, George and John are need of some Poppins. 

Yesterday, Walt Disney Studios shared a small teaser of Blunt as the iconic role and she looks perfect.

“Emily Blunt is Mary Poppins in the upcoming sequel, #MaryPoppinsReturns. The brand new film opens in theatres December 2018. #D23Expo”

Director Rob Marshall and Emily Blunt were on stage together to present the sequel of the iconic film at the D23 Expo in Anaheim, California.

A few seconds of footage was shown which made the audience roar with excitement. 

“I needed to pay homage to what Julie did, but carve out new space for myself.”

“No-one is ever going to out-Julie Julie Andrews”

Marshall responded to Blunts words with a massive compliment:

“She’s born to play this part.

“There’s not a better actor on the planet.”

There is also a stiller cast to support Blunt’s main role. 

Lin-Manuel Miranda as Jack, a street lamplighter, Meryl Streep as Poppins’ cousin Topsy, Emily Mortimer as Jane Banks, and Colin Firth as William Weatherall Wilkins.
