With the current craze in Disney seemingly being remaking and reviving classics from their extensive back catalogue, I think the House of Mouse have shown great restraint not revisiting Mary Poppins since the movie first dropped in 1962. Sure, we got a glimpse of the making of the movie with Saving Mr. Banks, but it's being one of their properties they've never repackaged for a new audience. Until now that is.

With Emily Blunt stepping in for Julie Andrews, Mary Poppins Returns brings the story's clock forward 25 years with the Banks children now all grown up, but still in desperate need of their former nanny's help. Cue the usual: singing, dancing, animated penguins, and a cockney jack of all trades. This latest trailergives us a real feeling for what is in store for us, with director Rob Marshall (Chicago, Into the Woods) doing a fine job of capturing the magic of the original. And extra points for bringing back Dick van Dyke. Check it out for yourself below.

Mary Poppins Returns reaches Irish cinemas on December 21st.
