D23 2017: New Motion Poster For MARY POPPINS RETURNS

And yet there was no trailer, just a rough cut of scenes and still images, accompanied by the Disney orchestra performing live, playing music from the new film's soundtrack.

Coinciding with the live-action movie presentation at the D23 Expo, Disney has released a motion poster for the upcoming sequel Mary Poppins Returns featuring Emily Blunt as the magical nanny; check it out here...

On a day when billion-dollar budgets were supposed to rule the stage, the first glimpse of images from Disney's Poppins sequel - Mary Poppins Returns - were met with the greatest applause, cheering and a standing ovation from the crowd.

The footage showcased the daily lives of Michael Banks (Ben Whishaw) and Jane Banks (Emily Mortimer), the children in the original film who are now all grown up. Following a family tragedy, Michael's three children - Annabel, Georgie, and John - are left joyless and in need of a spoonful of sugar.

The film also stars Lin-Manuel Miranda as lamplighter Jack, Meryl Streep as Mary's eccentric cousin Topsy, and Angela Lansbury as the Balloon Lady. "And we were very loyal to the books", Emily said. "In the teaser, her character says, 'Those things didn't really happen'".

The name of the USA citizen has still not been revealed and it will be done only after the appeals court approves the sentence. A statement issued by the university said it would do "everything it can to be supportive of Mr Wang and his family".

"I found that I watched about 15 minutes of the original and then just stopped watching it because I needed to kind of try and pay homage to what Julie did but carve out new space for myself", Blunt said.

Blunt and the film's director Rob Marshall spoke about the film at Disney's biennial expo (D23) on Saturday, where fans in attendance got to also see the first full teaser of the movie, which reportedly included clips that harken back to the original in the most delightful way: Mary floating in via umbrella, a big chimney sweep number, some kite-flying.

Here's a synopsis: Set in 1930s depression-era London (the time period of the original novels), Mary Poppins Returnsis drawn from the wealth of material in PL Travers' additional seven books. "This is a brand new original film musical from top to bottom, which is very rare, and it is a wonderful opportunity to create something specifically for the screen", Rob added.

The Mary Poppins sequel is scheduled to hit theatres in December 2018.
