Coinciding with the live-action movie presentation at the D23 Expo, Disney has released a motion poster for the upcoming sequel Mary Poppins Returns featuring Emily Blunt as the magical nanny; check it out here...

Aside from Blunt, Colin Firth has also joined the project, set to play Bank president, William Weatherall Wilkins, and Hamilton's Lin-Manuel Miranda has been cast as Bert's equivalent - a street lamp lighter called Jack - even Meryl Streep has been given a cameo. "This is living in that world with a foot in the past and a foot in the future and telling that story".

We've been given out first sneak peak at the sequal to the 1964 Disney classic Mary Poppins which stars Emily Blunt in the lead role.

"Star Wars" fans did get a morsel of footage in a behind-the-scenes featurette from the upcoming space saga and a lively panel with the film's writer-director Rian Johnson and a few of the film's stars.

"We both and the entire company and the creative time feel very protective of the original film because we love it so much", Marshall said. "I think children have really responded to that lack of sentimentality she has as well, that she's rude and eccentric and odd".

Ford Motor Company (F) has rebounded 7.5% since its low of $10.67
It fall, as 77 investors sold F shares while 407 reduced holdings. 128 funds opened positions while 277 raised stakes. Ccm Inv Advisers Limited Liability Company has 0.5% invested in Ford Motor Company (NYSE:F) for 194,925 shares.

Blunt took to the stage at the D23 Expo in Anaheim this morning, joining director/producer Rob Marshall to talk about the eagerly-anticipated return of the enigmatic nanny, where Blunt offered insight as to how she made the character her own.

Blunt is taking on a role originally played by Julie Andrews in the original "Mary Poppins", and those are some big shoes to fill. The movie is set for a December 25, 2018 release date. A sequel to "The Force Awakens", "The Last Jedi" picks up with that film's near-literal cliffhanger when Daisy Ridley's Rey and Mark Hamill's Luke Skywalker meet.

Curious newcomer Tran, Johnson said, treated the whole production like "an episode of Mr. Rogers", as she explored every corner of production, while Dern, also new to the series, couldn't help but mouth the word "pew" when shooting her blaster during filming. The teaser can be seen above.

"So it's my version of her!" she added.
