Directed and produced by Rob Marshall, the musical fantasy picks up years after the original, with siblings Michael Banks (Ben Whishaw) and Jane Banks (Emily Mortimer) now grown, and in need of Mary's magic more than ever.
In the footage Poppins returns to visit the Banks children as they are struggling to hold on to their house on Cherry Tree Lane, and Michael is trying to care for his children after the death of his wife. Also on board are Lin-Manuel Miranda as Jack the lamplighter, Meryl Streep as Mary's cousin Topsy, Colin Firth as Michael's boss, and Angela Lansbury as the Balloon Woman.

Although the crew has their housekeeper Ellen (Julie Walters) on hand for any domestic disasters and Jack by their side to bring the smiles, no one quite compares to the flawless and fun Mary Poppins.
This movie is shaping up to be a brilliant new adventure with Mary Poppins, and even better, the sequel seems to have the approval from key players involved in the first film. I'm not the biggest Rob Marshall fan (his Into the Woods adaptation was bad, folks), but he may have found the right material with Mary Poppins Returns. This trailer also offers a glimpse at a toe-tapping Dick Van Dyke as Mr. Dawes, Jr., the retired chairman of Fidelity Fiduciary Bank. "I really want her to take this and run with it because she will be brilliant".
