Following a first look at Emily Blunt as the titular character, now Disney has released a first look at Lin Manuel Miranda in Mary Poppins Returns.

Lin Manuel Miranda plays Jack, Mary's lamlighter friend in the film. Set pics also feature a full look at Emily Blunt in costume.

See the images below. 

Mary Poppins Returns is currently filming in London for its December 25, 2018 release and also stars Meryl Streep, as Topsy, Colin Firth as William Weatherall Wilkins, Angela Lansbury as the Balloon Lady, Emily Mortimer as Jane Banks, Julie Walters as Ellen, Dick Van Dyke as Mr. Dawes Jr., and Ben Whishaw as Michael Banks. Rob Marshal is directing.

Drawing from the wealth of material in P.L. Travers’ seven additional novels, the story will take place in Depression-era London (when the books were originally written) and follows a now-grown Jane and Michael Banks, who, along with Michael’s three children, are visited by the enigmatic Mary Poppins following a personal loss. Through her unique magical skills, and with the aid of her friend Jack, she helps the family rediscover the joy and wonder missing in their lives.
