There’s magic in the air once again as Mary Poppins drops in to say hello in the first official trailer for Disney’s long-awaited musical sequel.
Following a quick teaser was released during the Oscars, fans of the children’s classic were treated with a two minute, 26-second trailer Monday morning as Poppins says that she’s “come back to look after the Banks children” once again.
Taking place 25 years after the first film, “Mary Poppins Returns” sees the titular nanny (Emily Blunt) return to pay a visit to the now grown up Jane and Michael Banks (Emily Mortimer and Ben Whishaw), the latter of whom has three children, Annabelle, Georgie and John.
Having been struck by tragedy with the death of their mother and about to lose their home, the Banks family gets a bit of “supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” back into their lives as Poppins conjures up flocks of bluebirds, dancing penguins, and takes them on colorful underwater adventures.
The half-animated, half live-action film sees Dick Van Dyke return as Mr. Dawes, Jr., the retired chairman of the bank now run by Firth’s character, to pull off some of his famous tap dance moves.
Lin-Manuel Miranda, Colin Firth, Meryl Streep and Angela Lansbury also star in the film, which is directed by Rob Marshall.
“Mary Poppins Returns” hits theaters on Dec. 19.
