EMILY BLUNT is practically ideal in every way in footage from the much-anticipated Mary Poppins sequel. Until now. Mary Poppins Returns is drawn from the wealth of material in these additional books.

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", he said.

The teaser of the film was released recently and much like Mary Poppins says, Emily Blunt looks "practically flawless from head to toe". Here is what director Rob Marshall had to say during the panel.

But the English actress is doing her best to play down comparisons with Julie Andrews, who portrayed the iconic nanny in the classic 1964 film.

Emily Blunt takes on the titular role that Julie Andrews embodied in the 1964 original. "She's just unbelievable", Blunt said at the D23 expo.

Remember the horsemeat in burgers scandal - 66 arrested in Europol swoop
Other charges brought against those arrested were perverting the course of justice and committing crimes against public health . Spain's Guardia Civil police force began their investigation in 2016 after detecting "unusual behaviour" in horsemeat markets.

But in that crowd at the D23 Expo - think of it as the Disney cousin to Comic-Con - one little woman stood head and shoulders above the lot of them: a British nanny named Mary Poppins. "And we were very loyal to the books", said Blunt.

Johnson laughed that this wasn't his first job for Disney - he worked for the company's Disney Channel before he made his first film. On Saturday night, the studio released teaser posters on social media. She shows up to help out after a family tragedy.

Johnson also assured the audience, who have only seen Boyega's Finn in a seeming comatose state in the teaser trailer, that his character would get to "see some action" in the film.

Mum's the word on the other "Star Wars" film in the works - the Han Solo spinoff film that recently got a galactic shake-up when deep into production co-directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller were replaced with Ron Howard.

It is D23 time, Disney fans!
