Mary Poppins is getting a sequel, and its going to be supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.

Entertainment Weekly recently released footage and early photos of the new Mary Poppins Returns, which will be the follow-up to the hit 1964 Disney film.

The new film will be released Christmas 2018.

Mary Poppins told the story of how the nanny united an absent father and his children through her own magic. The story was loosely based on the first two books of the eight-book series by P.L. Travers.

The new movie will occur 25 years after the original, according to Entertainment Weekly. It will feature Emily Blunt as Mary Poppins, who returns to help Michael Banks (Ben Whishaw) and his troubled children see the magic in life.

If anyone can help this family find the light theyve lost, its Mary Poppins, according to EW.
