    The movie follows everyone's favorite nanny in 1930s depression-era London (the time period of the original novels by PL Travers). And she is, once again, in town to help the Banks family.


    Michael (Ben Whishaw) and Jane (Emily Mortimer) are grown up now. Michael lives on Cherry Tree Land with his his three children and their housekeeper, Ellen (Julie Walters). After Michael suffers a personal tragedy, Mary Poppins returns to help, as she did when he was a boy. She teams up with Jack (Lin-Manuel Miranda), a street lamplighter, to bring joy back into the Banks' lives.

    Basically, I cannot bear to give you any more context because we got our first look at Blunt in her Poppins costume today and LOOK AT IT:
