A new moving image of the practically-perfect nanny in a cobalt blue nanny coat and red hat with her iconic parrot head umbrella in hand was released on Facebook.

The material included the first look at the main cast in character, as well as glimpses of the characters played by Meryl Streep, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Angela Lansbury and, in something of a return engagement, original Poppins star Dick Van Dyke.

THE most action-packed teaser for Mary Poppins Returns is here, and it's certainly supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.

These domestic scenes then give way to a scene of Jack, a street lamplighter played by Hamilton's Lin-Manuel Miranda, flying a kite in the park with one of the Banks children. "And we were very loyal to the books".

"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.

Blunt, 34, told fans at Disney's D23 expo in Anaheim, California, her Mary will be a "little more odd and vain" like the character in PL Travers book. 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. I just had to do my version of her'.

The movie is set to reunite the director and producing team behind Disney's hit musical Into the Woods, with Rob Marshall in the director's chair and Marshall, John DeLuca, and Marc Platt all down as producers. The film will be released shortly before Mary Poppins Returns next Christmas. There are a ton of movies and other projects for Disney to showcase at the event in 2017, but outside of the Marvel Studios and Star Wars franchises, there is the highly-anticipated Mary Poppins Returns. "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".
