Reboots and remakes run the gamut from good to great, but one upcoming remake that could be particularly exciting is Mary Poppins Returns, starting Emily Blunt and Lin-Manuel Miranda. We got our first good look at Blunt as the titular character a few months ago, and now the movie has released a brand new look at the new flick and you can check out a good chunk of the cast having a blast, below. Check it out.

Yes, that's Mary Poppins and Jack, played by Emily Blunt and Lin-Manuel Miranda, seemingly having a whole lot of funs as they cart some of the young Banks children around. In the background, there's Emily Mortimer, who plays the adult version of Jane Banks from the original Mary Poppins movie. She seems to be staring in horror at the new children (John, played by Nathanael Saleh, Annabel, played by Pixie Davies and Ellen, played by Julie Walters) in the movie, who seem a little nervous about being in Jack's joyride contraption. Or maybe they are screaming in delight?

From what we know about Mary Poppins Returns, the movie will be set during the 1930s, in Depression Era London. Mary Poppins will literally be returning onto the scene so many years later and will meet the now-grown versions of Michael (Ben Whishaw) and Jane, as well as their children, who will be influenced by the famous Ms. Poppins and the street lamplighter, Jack. Lin-Manuel Miranda also previously said the writers of the new movie took stuff from some of the eight Mary Poppins books by P.L. Travers to fit into the new movie with the grown-up versions of Michael and Jane.

Over at USA Today, which originated the image, also spoke to Blunt, who explained why she is so excited to take on the iconic role, noting,

I just loved how eccentric and wacky she is in the books -- incredibly vain and rude to the children. As a British person, I really responded to that lack of saccharine relationships. I find it comforting the idea of someone just sweeping in who's no-nonsense and cleaning everything up and making everything right again in a magical way that's not sentimental.

We'll be able to find out if Mary Poppins has grown different over the 20 years between the events of the original flick and Mary Poppins Returns. You can catch the new movie a little under a year from now. Mary Poppins Returns will officially open in theaters on December 25, 2018.
