By Alex Ungerman
Emily Blunt is a perfect choice to play everyone's favorite nanny!
The first photo of the 34-year-old actress taking on the iconic titular role in Mary Poppins Returns -- Disney's upcoming sequel to the classic 1964 film -- has been released, and while it offers only a facially obscured glimpse of the magical nanny, the flower-adorned hat, tailored jacket, and bag are already unmistakable.
While we'll have to wait awhile -- until Christmas 2018 -- for the film to umbrella fly into theaters, in December ET spoke to Dick Van Dyke, who opened up about his cameo in Mary Poppins Returns, after playing multiple roles in the original picture.
"I'll be going to London in the spring to do my role, and I get to do a little song-and-dance number," the 91-year-old actor explained. "I gotta be a part of it."
