Emily Blunt

Hamilton’s Lin Manuel-Miranda is graduating from Broadway to the big screen, in Walt Disney Pictures Mary Poppins sequel.

The film will also star Emily Blunt as Mary Poppins herself, with Manuel-Miranda playing a new character named Jack. The original 1964 classic starred Julie Andrews in the iconic lead role.

According to Entertainment Weekly:

This new story will take place in Depression-era London and follows a now-grown-up Jane and Michael Banks, who, along with Michael’s three children, are visited by Poppins following a personal loss. She and her friend Jack then help the family rediscover the joy and wonder missing in their lives.

The film is set to hit theaters December 25, 2018.
