Disney Just Gave Us Another Look at Emily Blunt's Mary Poppins

As a live orchestra set the scene with original music from the film, the audience was reintroduced to the same house, the same kite, and even the same Banks family, but in a very different time.

EMILY BLUNT is practically ideal in every way in footage from the much-anticipated Mary Poppins sequel. The initial reveal came via a short teaser for "Mary Poppins Returns" that was screened for attendees. Michael, a widower, is raising his three children (played by Pixie Davies, Nathanael Saleh and Joel Dawson) on his own in the family home he inherited on Cherry Tree Lane.

The material included the first look at the main cast in character, as well as glimpses of the characters played by Meryl Streep, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Angela Lansbury and, in something of a return engagement, original Poppins star Dick Van Dyke.

Weather Forecast: Saturday storms, Sunday sunshine
Showers and storms will exit the area from northwest to southeast late in the evening and early overnight hours. Tuesday is our transition day, and our last day of heavy rain before drier and warmer air files in.

Lin Manuel Miranda, who won the Pulitzer Prize for creating and starring in Broadway's historical, hip-hop musical Hamilton, will play a new character named Jack, a street lamplighter.

From there on out, there's more whimsy, color and humor as we see Mary begin to bring back the joy and wonder that had been missing in the Banks' lives.

"We both and the entire company and the creative time feel very protective of the original film because we love it so much", Marshall said. "In the teaser, her character says, 'Those things didn't really happen'".

Pre-dawn house fire kills 22 in China
The firemen managed to extinguish the blaze, the cause of the incident is being investigated, according to the broadcaster. Local authorities have arrested one suspect for allegedly setting the building ablaze and locking the doors.

"I needed to try to pay homage to Julie Andrews but carve out a new space for myself".

But in that crowd at the D23 Expo - think of it as the Disney cousin to Comic-Con - one little woman stood head and shoulders above the lot of them: a British nanny named Mary Poppins.

The movie is set to reunite the director and producing team behind Disney's hit musical Into the Woods, with Rob Marshall in the director's chair and Marshall, John DeLuca, and Marc Platt all down as producers. However, the subsequent adventures of Mary Poppins remained only on the pages of the seven other P.L. Travers' books.

High amount of marijuana discovered in new Ford cars made in Mexico
Balzano said this was not the first he's heard of marijuana hidden in cars shipped from Mexico. Word on the street is the new Ford Fusions are dope - but not in the way you think.

Finally, the release date was confirmed as being Christmas Day 2018, which means we've got nearly 18 months to wait.
