Here's your first look at Emily Blunt as the iconic magical flying nanny in Disney's upcoming "Mary Poppins" sequel, which also stars Ben Whishaw and Emily Mortimer as the grown-up versions of Michael and Jane Banks, and Hamilton's Lin-Manuel Miranda as a street lamplighter, named Jack.

Directed by theater helmer and choreographer-turned-film director Rob Marshall (Into the Woods, Chicago), "Mary Poppins Returns" is a sequel to the 1964 Disney musical classic which originally starred Julie Andrews, Dick Van Dyke and a couple of dancing penguins.

Supposedly taking place 20 years after the events of the original film, and centering on the Banks kids who are now all grown up with children of their own, the London-set fantasy musical will also star Oscar-winner Meryl Streep as Mary's eccentric cousin, Topsy and Colin Firth as Fidelity Fiduciary Bank manager William Weatherall Wilkins. The 91-year-old Van Dyke is also expected to make an appearance as retired bank chairman Mr. Dawes Jr. with the legendary Angela Lansbury playing "the Balloon Lady."

The official teaser trailer (watch it above) was released Sunday night during the 90th Oscars broadcast, and features a quick peek at Blunt as Mary Poppins. She can be seen floating down through a windstorm while holding onto a kite.

Based upon The Mary Poppins Stories by PL Travers and written by two-time Oscar-nominated screenwriter David Magee (Finding Neverland, Life of Pi) with a screen story by Magee and director Rob Marshall, "Mary Poppins Returns" is currently scheduled to hit theaters at the end of the year during the Christmas holiday.

In Depression-era London, a now-grown Jane and Michael Banks, along with Michael's three children, are visited by the enigmatic Mary Poppins following a personal loss. Through her unique magical skills, and with the aid of her friend Jack, she helps the family rediscover the joy and wonder missing in their lives.
