See Emily Blunt As Mary Poppins In New Set Photos

Emily Blunt is stepping into the role as the nanny with a plan in Mary Poppins Returns. Now, thanks to a few clever set photographers, fans can see for themselves how she stacks up.

Though a teaser image of Blunt as Mary Poppins was revealed earlier this year, it didn't provide a full look at the actress, reveal much about location, or offer any glimpses at the supporting cast. These new set photos, however, give a crystal-clear view of Blunt as Poppins and her costar Lin-Manuel Miranda as Jack, the optimistic lamplighter meant to resemble Dick Van Dyke's Bert from the 1964 original.

Rugged up in a royal blue overcoat and jewel-toned hat, fit with a feather accessory, Blunt's Mary sits in the front seat of a tandem bike, pulling behind her Miranda's Jack. Sitting side-by-side with Miranda are three young actors who play the children of Michael Banks (Ben Winshaw). In the images, taken on location in London, the five actors can be seen smiling between takes and acting quite serious when the cameras are rolling.

A handful of images, plus a behind-the-scenes set video, have made the rounds on social media. Check them out below:

Coming 54 years after the original flick, Mary Poppins Returns will apparently tackle more mature themes, but still keep the spoonful-of-sugar fun countless fans remember. Here's the official synopsis for the upcoming film: "In Depression-era London, a now-grown Jane and Michael Banks, along with Michael's three children, are visited by the enigmatic Mary Poppins following a personal loss. Through her unique magical skills, and with the aid of her friend Jack, she helps the family rediscover the joy and wonder missing in their lives."

Mary Poppins Returns is set for release on December 25, 2018. Joining Blunt and Miranda is Meryl Streep, who plays Mary's oddball cousin, Topsy. Since there's still a bit of waiting to do before we see the trio in action, brush up on the disturbing facts Disney doesn't want you to know—like how the author of Mary Poppins reacted to the original movie.
