We got our first tantalising glimpse of Emily Blunt in character as Mary Poppins courtesy of Entertainment Weekly back in March and it's the same publication that's provided us with our first proper look at the new take on the classic character as Blunt graces the cover of this week's edition.
Blunt is of course starring in a sequel to the 1964 classic called Mary Poppins Returns. Set 25 years after the original, it sees Poppins return to three new Banks children after a now grown-up Michael (Ben Whishaw) suffers a personal loss. She and optimistic street lighter Jack (Lin-Manuel Miranda) will bring joy and wonder back into the family's lives.
The film is also set to star Meryl Streep, Emily Mortimer, Colin Firth, Angela Lansbury, Dick Van Dyke and Julie Walters.
