Emily Blunt, who chose not to take too much inspiration from her performance, said Mary Poppins Returns heroine would be a little stranger than the previous one. Which. But the sell that she "was one of the wisest women in the universe and is an angelic celestial being who is going to get to wear unbelievable costumes and gets to work with Reese and Mindy as a part of the Mrs. Team" was something she couldn't say no to.

"Julie was incredibly gracious, and we talked about it in a very general way but she made it clear right up front", Marshall explained "She said, 'This is Emily's show, and I really want it to be Emily's show".

Blunt said that Mary Poppins is more acerbic, odd and vain in the books, and they pay more homage to that in the new movie.

And here we thought we couldn't love her any more than we already do.

The footage also included glimpses at Julie Walters as the Banks' housekeeper Ellen, Meryl Streep as Mary's eccentric cousin Topsy, Angela Lansbury as the Balloon Lady, and Dick Van Dyke (sho starred in the original film in a different role) as Mr. Dawes Jr., the retired chairman of the bank now run by Firth's character. "Then we said, 'And we're thinking of Emily Blunt, ' and she just threw her hands up in the air and said yes".

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

"Pre "High School Musical" Disney Channel", Johnson added.

The filming of the new Star Wars film is complex and expansive. "I'm sort of selfishly wanting her to wait for my version".

The new film, directed by Rob Marshall, is set to be a big change from the original, promising an all-new soundtrack (no "Spoonful of Sugar" for us) and boasting a star-studded cast. "It's going to be very cool".

As thousands of Disney fans packed the exhibition hall at the Anaheim Convention Centre on the weekend, they were treated to a passing parade of Jedi knights, superheroes, teasers and tidbits from upcoming blockbusters.
