Emily Blunt makes an appearance at Disney’s D23 Expo on Saturday afternoon (July 15) in Anaheim, Calif.
The 34-year-old actress was present to debut new content from her upcoming movie Mary Poppins Returns alongside director Rob Marshall. A cool motion poster featuring Emily as the title character can be seen below!
“I needed to try to pay homage to Julie Andrews but carve out a new space for myself. And we were very loyal to the books,” Emily said.
“I was incredibly honored to be approached by Disney about directing a sequel. This is a brand new original film musical from top to bottom, which is very rare, and it is a wonderful opportunity to create something specifically for the screen,” Rob added.
Footage from the upcoming teaser trailer was also shown at the panel and Emily floating down from the sky was one of the shots people were buzzing about!
Mary Poppins Returns will hit theaters on December 25, 2018.
FYI: Emily is wearing a Dolce&Gabbana dress, Gianvito Rossi shoes, and jewelry by Jamie Wolf, Sarah Weinstock, and Savannah Stranger.
