There’s just something about Mary.
After debuting the first photo of Emily Blunt as Mary Poppins earlier this year, which subsequently went viral, Disney has now released an image-in-motion video of the actress in the role. Ladies, gentlemen, animated penguins, without further ado, here is Mary Poppins:

Speaking at the D23 Expo in Anaheim, California, Blunt said, “No one is ever going to out-Julie Julie Andrews. She’s just unbelievable,” before teasing that her version of Mary is a little more “acerbic and odd and vain” like the character is in the books.
“So it’s my version of her!” she added.
A clip of the movie reportedly showed protagonist Michael Banks’ son, Georgie, flying a kite “that gets caught in the clouds.” Jack helps him pull it down to reveal that none other than Mary Poppins is holding it.
From social media reactions, it sounds like it all went down better than a spoonful of sugar.
The story takes place 20 years after the original and also stars Lin-Manuel Miranda as Jack the lamplighter, Meryl Streep as Mary’s strange cousin Topsy, and Angela Lansbury as the Balloon Lady.
