    Dick Van Dyke Looks Virtually The Same In "Mary Poppins Returns" As He Did In The Original Film

    However, he is playing his son. The official trailer for Mary Poppins Returns, starring Emily Blunt, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Ben Whishaw, Emily Mortimer, Meryl Streep (!), and Julie Walters, has dropped.

    A new trailer for Mary Poppins Returns has finally dropped and I am thrilled to report that Lin-Manuel Miranda's cockney accent is worth your time.

    However, the most amazing thing from the trailer is that we see Dick Van Dyke (who is 92 years old) dancing on a desk, looking exactly like Mr Dawes in the original Mary Poppins.

    The resemblance is uncanny.

    Dick Van Dyke in the original Mary Poppins and him in the new one... #MaryPoppinsReturns

    And here's Emily Blunt as Mary Poppins...

    ...meeting Michael and Jane (Emily Mortimer), who are now, of course, adults.

    Heck, even the kite looks the same.

    Oh, and in conclusion: MERYL STREEP.

    Mary Poppins Returns will be in cinemas from Dec. 19 in the United States and Dec. 21 in the United Kingdom.
