The world’s most famous nanny is back after 53 years.
Disney have released the first moving poster of Emily Blunt as the practically perfect nanny for Mary Poppins Returns – a sequel to the much-loved 1964 classic.
Emily takes on the role of the titular babysitter, and can be seen revealing the new and rather dazzling look of Mary – magical umbrella still firmly attached to her arm.
