Mary Poppins Returns trailer flies in with old-fashioned animation

Set 25 years after the original film (which confirms that Mary is an ageless wonder), Mary Poppins Returns will see the well-dressed nanny once again visiting London's No. 17 Cherry Tree Lane, which is now home to all-grown-up Michael Banks (Ben Whishaw), who's grieving the loss of his wife and struggling to keep himself (and his three kids) afloat in the face of encroaching ruin. The fact that Dick Van Dyke is still spry enough to dance on a table at his age is magic all on its own.

Emily Blunt, who is great in nearly everything, is joined by a pretty killer cast: Lin-Manuel Miranda, of Hamilton fame, as "Jack, an optimistic street lamplighter who helps bring light-and life-to the streets of London"; Paddington himself, Ben Whishaw as Michael Banks; Emily Mortimer as Jane Banks; Julie Walters as the Banks' housekeeper Ellen; Angela Lansbury (!) playing someone named the Balloon Lady (?); Colin Firth as Fidelity Fiduciary Bank's William Weatherall Wilkins; and Meryl Streep as Mary Poppins' cousin, Topsy.

Mary Poppins Returns draws its inspiration from the follow up novels Travers penned following the original 1934 book.

The trailer also gives us a mini The Devil Wears Prada reunion, with Meryl Streep playing Mary Poppins' eccentric cousin Topsy.

Marshall directs a script from David Magee, with a screen story by Magee, Marshall and John DeLuca. Blunt brings so much warmth and intelligence to all her work, and clearly comes through in the trailer.

"As I live and breathe", Miranda's Jack says as Mary floats down to Earth. Andrews even chose to not appear in the movie to ensure she didn't take the spotlight away from Blunt. It is going to be one Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious Christmas as Mary Poppins heads back to theaters nationwide December 19! What do you think of the trailer? Luckily for him, Mary's arrival quickly turns everything around.
