We get more stills of Emily Blunt on set as Mary Poppins and a still of a content-looking Lin-Manuel Miranda as Jack.
There was an official photo released of Emily Blunt as Mary Poppins for the sequel Mary Poppins Returns, which was a cute tease. But today, this image of Lin-Manuel Miranda as Jack showed up on Twitter by Gordon Harrold, who took the photo.
This image, along with more images of Emily Blunt, were released earlier today and are spreading fairly quickly throughout the Twitterverse.
Check out the rest of the images below.

Mary Poppins Returns picks up two-and-change decades after the events of the 1964 film, furthering the adventures of Mary Poppins and the Banks children, Jane and Michael, who have long since grown up (they’re played in the film by Emily Mortimer and Ben Whishaw) but are no less in need of their former minder. The new tale, as penned by screenwriter David Magee, is set in Depression-era London and finds Mary Poppins returning to help the family rediscover joy after Michael suffers a personal loss.
The film pulls from stories within the other seven books of P.L. Travers’ original children’s series. As the Banks children grew, so did their travels with Mary Poppins, who popped in and out of their lives throughout the additional novels along with several other ephemeral characters that will now finally find their way onscreen (like recently-announced Angela Lansbury, who plays a maniacal balloon vendor).
Mary Poppins Returns makes its way into theaters December 25th.
