Disney has released the first look at Emily Blunt as Mary Poppins in the upcoming sequel to the 1964 classic starring Julie Andrews. Lin-Manuel Miranda joins Blunt in a Bert-like role replacing Dick Van Dyke from the first film, and as probably the world’s biggest Mary Poppins fanboys, we’re really excited about this movie. But while other sites are focusing on the first look at Mary Poppins’ profile in this photo, it’s something else that caught our eye:
That’s right! Mary Poppins’ Tardis-like bag has gotten a major upgrade! In the original film, Poppins’ bag was adorned with a simple floral print exterior.
Clearly, a lot of things have changed in the 25 years that have passed (in continuity) from the first film. We’ll have to wait to see what else when when Mary Poppins returns in the Rob Marshall directed Mary Poppins Returns on December 25, 2018.
