Get a better look at Emily Blunt & Lin-Manuel Miranda in Mary Poppins pics

Emily Mortimer joins up with Mary Poppins Returns

When it comes to remakes, particularly those of classic and beloved films, most of us are rightfully skeptical, but Disney is making it awfully difficult to have anything bad to say about the upcoming MARY POPPINS RETURNS, which, to be fair, is technically a sequel to the original rather than a straight up remake.

Disney is going to re-live-action another Mary Poppins

We already know that Disney is on this massive kick of turning their classic animated films into live-action movies.

However, I don't know that I ever saw the...
