Disney has announced the release date for “Mary Poppins Returns,” a sequel to the 1964 classic. The new film will open December 25, 2018, and will star Emily Blunt and “Hamilton” creator Lin-Manuel Miranda. Blunt is reuniting with her “Into the Woods” director Rob Marshall for the project.

Plot details about the movie were also unveiled:

Blunt has been cast as Mary Poppins and Miranda will play a new character, a street lamplighter named Jack. Drawing from the wealth of material in P.L. Travers’ seven additional novels, the story will take place in Depression-era London (when the books were originally written) and follows a now-grown Jane and Michael Banks, who, 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.”

“Mary Poppins Returns” is part of Disney’s big push to draw from its deep well of familiar, beloved stories. The studio is making live-action versions of many popular animated fairy tales, like “Beauty and the Beast” and a Cruella de Vil movie.
