Her outfit is different than the one Andrews wore - a deep blue caped coat and plum hat with adorable bird and feather. Mary Poppins' boundless carpet bag, on the other hand, has received a complete makeover (though the jury is out on whether its endless contents have changed).
The first picture of Emily Blunt on the set of Mary Poppins Returns has been unveiled. "Blunt also revealed to EW that the new film will rely more on the books by P.L. Travers, admitting, "[Mary's] a little meaner, yeah".
Of course, you can also expect to see Angela Lansbury and Dick Van Dyke in the movie, because why not?!
It's being directed and produced by Oscar-nominee, Emmy and DGA Award victor Rob Marshall (Into the Woods, Chicago).

There are countless websites that are down due to Amazon's issues, including Quora, filesharing site Slack, Grammarly and more . The nature of the issue means that some websites could remain functional, but have issues displaying images or sharing files.
The sequel already has Julie Andrews's blessing; Blunt told Entertainment Weekly the Mary Poppins Returns director, Rob Marshall, saw Andrews in passing and told her the then-top secret casting info, to which she replied, "Oh, wonderful!"
The photo shows Blunt as the beloved nanny, standing outside the Banks home.
Mary Poppins Returns picks up two-and-change decades after the events of the 1964 film, furthering the adventures of Mary Poppins and the Banks children, Jane and Michael, who have long since grown up (they're played in the film by Emily Mortimer and Ben Whishaw) but are no less in need of their former minder. After tragedy strikes the family, Poppins returns - along with her "eccentric cousin" Topsy (Streep) and an "optimistic street lamplighter" named Jack (Miranda) - to set things right.
