THE most action-packed teaser for Mary Poppins Returns is here, and it's certainly supercalifragilisticexpialidocious. After Michael suffers a personal loss, the enigmatic nanny Mary Poppins (Emily Blunt) re-enters the lives of the Banks family, and, along with the optimistic street lamplighter Jack (Lin-Manuel Miranda), uses her unique magical skills to help the family rediscover the joy and wonder missing in their lives.

Scenes showed Mary Poppins floating from the skies holding a kite, pulling an umbrella out of her magic bottomless bag and riding in a vehicle with lamplighter Jack (Lin-Manuel Miranda) in a part-animated sequence echoing the original film. "This is living in that world with a foot in the past and a foot in the future and telling that story", he said.

We've been given out first sneak peak at the sequal to the 1964 Disney classic Mary Poppins which stars Emily Blunt in the lead role. Here is what director Rob Marshall had to say during the panel. "And we were very loyal to the books", Emily said.

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. "I had to do my version of her". 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 awesome costumes and gets to work with Reese and Mindy as a part of the Mrs. Team" was something she couldn't say no to.

None of the Mary Poppins Returns material presented at the D23 Expo has officially been released online.

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

From Iron Man to Spider-Man, the cast of the upcoming ensemble "Avengers: Infinity War" gathered on stage for a superhero-sized selfie and debuted new footage for fans.

Johnson also assured the audience, who have only seen Boyega's Finn in a seeming comatose state in the teaser trailer, that his character would get to "see some action" in the film. "So it's my version of her!" she said. "It's going to be very cool". Massoud will play the title role with Scott as Princess Jasmine, according to Deadline coverage from Disney's D23 Expo.
