First 'Mary Poppins Returns' Trailer Debuts During Oscars
The first trailer for Mary Poppins Returns has officially arrived. During the movie industry's biggest night, the latest Disney sequel got its official debut.
In gloomy Depression-era London, a bright green kite gets swept away by the wind. It passes Lin-Manuel Miranda as Jack and knocks off a hat until a young boy finds it. As he and Jack pull and pull on the kite, out from the sky drops Mary Poppins herself.

Later, in a bright home, Michael (Ben Whishaw) and Jane Banks (Emily Mortimer) say to Poppins "It's wonderful to see you."
Looking at her reflection (which magically moves on its own), Poppins simply replies, "Yes, it is, isn't it?"
Lin-Manuel Miranda, who was nominated for an Oscar last year (for best original song from Moana), announced during the ABC red carpet interviews that the trailer was on its way.
Directed by Rob Marshall, Mary Poppins Returns stars Emily Blunt as the title character, Meryl Streep, Colin Firth, Angela Lansbury and Lin-Manuel Miranda. Dick Van Dyke is returning to the film.
The movie will follow the Banks children, now grown up, as they go through a personal loss. Mary Poppins comes to help them and Michael Banks' three children.
Mary Poppins Returns will hit theaters on Dec. 25.
