5 magical moments from the Mary Poppins Returns trailer


Disney just released the new official trailer for the highly anticipated remake and it looks incredible! Let’s take a look at some of its best moments.

Disney just released the first official trailer for Mary Poppins Returns and it is loaded with nostalgia plus new visuals we can’t wait to see in theaters.

Fans of the original Mary Poppins movie released in 1964 get a chance to see their favorite magical nanny once again as she revisits the Banks children, who are now adults facing a difficult time in their lives.

Watch the trailer below:

Here are five of our favorite moments from this brief look into the magical world of Mary Poppins.

Stellar cast

Let’s start off with the cast. We have a lot of A-list celebrities to look forward to in this movie, including Ben Whishaw, Emily Mortimer, Julie Walters, Colin Firth, Meryl Streep, Angela Lansbury, and Dick Van Dyke himself (who will be reprising the role of Mr. Dawes Jr.) So far, it’s fair to say that these celebrities are perfect for their respective roles.

Emily Blunt plays our beloved nanny who is making a comeback, Mary Poppins. Not only does she look the part, she also takes on the role with as much grace and poise as her predecessor, the incomparable Julie Andrews. Her voice sounds beautiful and she makes all of us wish that we had her as a nanny when we were little.

Then we have Lin-Manuel Miranda, aka the purest human being on Earth, who plays Jack — a lamplighter and former apprentice of Bert (Dick Van Dyke’s character in the original film). He too goes on this wonderful adventure and appears to be a great help to Mary and the children.

Mary’s song

We also get a small taste of the music that will be featured in the film, most notably the song that Mary appears to be singing to the children following their declaration of missing their mother. “Nothings gone forever, only out of place,” Mary sings. It’s only a matter of time before we hear more of this movie’s compositions and we’re hoping that they’ll include the well-known “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” into the mix to pay homage to the original version.

The animated world

The movie takes us back to a similar looking animated world that we witnessed in the original Mary Poppins movie. Mary spins an urn which releases magical blue flowers that surround her, Jack, and Michael’s children. In these scenes, we see all kinds of animals including the dancing penguins that Mary and Bert met previously during their time in the animated world.  This combination of live-action and animation is definitely something to look forward to and we hope that it is just as good as before.

The new Banks children

The movie has three new Banks children — Annabel, Georgie, and John — who are Michael’s adorable young kids. They go on all kinds of adventures just like their father did when he was their age, floating towards the skies, swimming with magical fish, interacting with all kinds of animals, and cleaning up in just a snap. They are unsurprisingly filled with excitement and awe for their new nanny and her powers, truly believing that “everything is possible.”

Dancing scenes

Just like we were granted a dance number amongst the chimney sweeps with the 1964 version of the movie, it looks like we’ll see a new one performed by Jack and his fellow lamplighters. In the trailer, we see them swinging on some lamps and leaping into the air just as their predecessors did during the classic “Step in Time.” Speaking of Bert and his crew, in one scene, Dick Van Dyke (who is 92 years old by the way) gets up on a table and begins to dance. The man is a legend and we’re definitely looking forward to his performance.
