However, the footage was accompanied by a live orchestra performing original new music from the film conducted by its composer, Marc Shaiman.
The teaser of the film was released recently and much like Mary Poppins says, Emily Blunt looks "practically flawless from head to toe". The initial reveal came via a short teaser for "Mary Poppins Returns" that was screened for attendees.
The footage showcased the daily lives of Michael Banks (Ben Whishaw) and Jane Banks (Emily Mortimer), the children in the original film who are now all grown up. Michael, a widower, is raising his three children (played by Pixie Davies, Nathanael Saleh and Joel Dawson) on his own in the family home he inherited on Cherry Tree Lane.
We've already seen the cast in photos in that Entertainment Weekly spread, and gotten a sneak peek at Blunt and Lin-Manuel Miranda filming in front of Buckingham Palace in England. Blunt described taking on this role as "daunting".
'I watched about 15 minutes of the original and then stopped because I needed to pay homage to what Julie did but carve out new space for myself, ' said Blunt.
"We both and the entire company and the creative time feel very protective of the original film because we love it so much", Marshall said.
Blunt and the film's director Rob Marshall spoke about the film at Disney's biennial expo (D23) on Saturday, where fans in attendance got to also see the first full teaser of the movie, which reportedly included clips that harken back to the original in the most delightful way: Mary floating in via umbrella, a big chimney sweep number, some kite-flying. "She's just unbelievable", before teasing that her version of Mary is a little more "acerbic and odd and vain" like the character is in the books. Until now. Mary Poppins Returns is drawn from the wealth of material in these additional books. "I was incredibly honored to be approached by Disney about directing a sequel".
Directed by Rob Marshall, with songs from the duo of Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman (Hairspray), Mary Poppins Returns will premiere on December 25, 2018.
