A “Mary Poppins” sequel is in the works at Disney, and starring along with Emily Blunt will be “Hamilton” star Lin-Manuel Miranda, ET Online reports.

“Into the Woods” director Rob Marshall is directing, with “Finding Neverland” scribe David Magee writing the project. Miranda will play Jack, a street lamplighter.

Blunt has the title role, which was played by Julie Andrews in Disney’s classic 1964 movie. “Mary Poppins Returns” is due in theaters on Dec. 25, 2018.

  1. Well, Miranda’s Cockney accent (if, indeed, he will have one) can’t be any worse than Dick Van Dyke’s.

  2. I agree with WriterGuy; it’s a wonder that Julie Andrews didn’t smack him in the face, however delightful Dick Van Dyke was and is otherwise.
