Check out set photos for Mary Poppins Returns featuring Emily Blunt and Lin-Manuel Miranda in front of Buckingham Palace.
Below check out Emily Blunt’s Mary Poppins and Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Jack (as well as the new Banks children) filming a scene for Mary Poppins Return in front of London’s Buckingham Palace. While there were no details provided regarding what takes place during this sequence, by the look of the one picture with dozens of bike riders I’d assume this is a musical number in the same vein as Chim Chim Cher-ee.
Mary Poppins Returns stars Emily Blunt, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Ben Whishaw, Emily Mortimer, Julie Walters, Colin Firth, Meryl Streep, Dick Van Dyke and Angela Lansbury. The film arrives in theaters December 25, 2018.
“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. In the story, Michael (Whishaw) and Jane (Mortimer) are now grown up, with Michael, his three children and their housekeeper, Ellen (Walters), living on Cherry Tree Lane. After Michael suffers a personal loss, the enigmatic nanny Mary Poppins (Blunt) re-enters the lives of the Banks family, and, along with the optimistic street lamplighter Jack (Miranda), uses her unique magical skills to help the family rediscover the joy and wonder missing in their lives. Mary Poppins also introduces the children to a new assortment of colorful and whimsical characters, including her eccentric cousin, Topsy (Streep)”
