Making a sequel to “Mary Poppins” doesn’t exactly seem like the smartest idea in paper, but the first trailer for “Mary Poppins Returns” has arrived to assure everyone that Emily Blunt and company will have no problem restoring that old school Disney magic. Rob Marshall is behind the camera for the sequel after directing the company’s “Into the Woods” to three Oscar nominations. With a Christmas release date already set, Disney has high hopes for this one.

Disney’s official synopsis reads: “In Depression-era London, a now-grown Jane and Michael Banks, along with Michael’s three children, are visited by the enigmatic Mary Poppins following a personal loss. Through her unique magical skills, and with the aid of her friend Jack, she helps the family rediscover the joy and wonder missing in their lives.”

The film co-stars Lin-Manuel Miranda, Meryl Streep, Ben Whishaw, Emily Mortimer, Angela Lansbury, Julie Walters and Colin Firth. Both Blunt and Streep previously worked with Marshall on “Into the Woods.”

“Mary Poppins Returns” opens December 25, 2018. Watch the first teaser trailer below.
