Disney has released a brand-new special look promo for "Mary Poppins Returns," the much-buzzed-about, long-awaited sequel to the 1964 classic musical that starred Julie Andrews.

This time around, it's "A Quiet Place" star Emily Blunt who is taking over the role of the iconic flying, magical nanny.

Set 20 years after the events of the original film, the London-set sequel centers on Michael and Jane Banks (played by Ben Whishaw and Emily Mortimer) who are now all grown up with children of their own. As the title suggests, Blunt's Mary Poppins has returned to look after Michael's young children, following a recent family tragedy.

Directed by Rob Marshall (Into the Woods, Chicago), the film also stars Tony-winning "Hamilton" star/creator Lin-Manuel Miranda as a street lamplighter, named Jack. The cast also includes Meryl Streep as Mary's eccentric cousin, Topsy, Colin Firth as Fidelity Fiduciary Bank manager William Weatherall Wilkins, with legendary actress Angela Lansbury playing "the Balloon Lady" and 91-year-old Dick Van Dyke in the guest role of retired bank chairman Mr. Dawes Jr.

"Mary Poppins Returns" arrives in theaters December 19th.
