It’s been over 50 years since the world fell in love with the original - but now you can take your mini-me's to experience a new installment of Mary Poppins magic.
In anticipation of the upcoming sequel, Disney has released a still of Emily Blunt as the quintessential Supernanny. With her back to the camera, the British actress sports a new take on the signature coat and bottomless bag in an atmospheric image perfectly capturing the spirit of the iconic 1964 film.

Wardrobe is designed by Sandy Powell – of Shakespeare in Love and Cinderella fame – so this production will likely be a sartorial feast for even the most discerning eye. Oh and did we mention the movie also stars Meryl Streep, Colin Firth and Emily Mortimer – with a cameo appearance by Dick Van Dyke?
Drawing from the wealth of material in P.L. Travers’ seven additional novels, the story will take place in Depression-era London, when the books were originally written, and follows a now-grown Jane and Michael Banks, who, along with Michael’s three children, are visited by the enigmatic Mary Poppins following a personal loss, 25 years after she first dropped into the household. 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.
If you can't wait for the Christmas Day 2018 release, you can always get your Mary Poppins fix at the Dubai Opera, playing from May 1st-18th.
