Emily Blunt in Talks to Star in Disney's 'Mary Poppins' Sequel!

Emily Blunt is reportedly in talks to star as the title character in the upcoming sequel to the beloved movie Mary Poppins.

The 32-year-old actress’ deal is not yet finalized and her pregnancy may affect her decision. Emily is currently expecting her second child with husband John Krasinski.

The Mary Poppins sequel will be directed by Rob Marshall and produced by Marc Platt and John DeLuca, the team that Emily previously worked with on Disney’s movie musical Into the Woods.

The upcoming movie “will take place in Depression-era London 20 years after the first film and will take story lines from P.L. Travers’ children books focusing on the magical nanny’s continued adventures with the Banks family,” according to Variety.
