And yet there was no trailer, just a rough cut of scenes and still images, accompanied by the Disney orchestra performing live, playing music from the new film's soundtrack. Following a family tragedy, Michael's three children - Annabel, Georgie, and John - are left joyless and in need of a spoonful of sugar. They're teetering on a crisis thanks to the ruthless manager of Fidelity Fiduciary, William Weatherall Wilkin (Colin Firth).

We've been given out first sneak peak at the sequal to the 1964 Disney classic Mary Poppins which stars Emily Blunt in the lead role. Here's some of what Emily Blunt had to say during the panel. "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. "I was incredibly honored to be approached by Disney about directing a sequel".
Here's a synopsis: Set in 1930s depression-era London (the time period of the original novels), Mary Poppins Returnsis drawn from the wealth of material in PL Travers' additional seven books. A single photo of Blunt in character was released (and went viral) earlier this year, giving us our first look at the reboot, which takes place 25 years after the original.
