Watch a newly released "special look" at Mary Poppins Returns starring Lin-Manuel Miranda, Emily Blunt, Dick Van Dyke, Ben Whishaw, and more above. The new video features early looks at some of the upcoming film's original songs and musical numbers (written by Hairspray team Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman), along with a brief glimpse of Dick Van Dyke's dancing cameo performance.
This movie-musical sequel to the 1964 classic is due in theatres December 19. Hamilton writer-star and Tony winner Miranda co-stars as Jack, an "optimistic streetlamp lighter," opposite Blunt in the title role. Whishaw (The Crucible on Broadway) stars as a grown-up Michael Banks, with Emily Mortimer (Hugo) as his sister Jane. Also set to make cameos in the film are Angela Lansbury and Meryl Streep.
The story, which picks up 25 years after the events of the first film, sees Mary Poppins returning to the now-adult Banks children following a personal tragedy.
