WATCH: Disney has posted a new trailer for Mary Poppins Returns

A just-posted trailer for Disney's Mary Poppins Returns connects the original film's central characters to the new story.

 

As in Julie Andrews's 1965 original, there's a poignant mix of fantasy and humor, a splash of animation and even -- SPOILER ALERT -- a familiar face from the original cast. Dick Van Dyke appears near the end of the clip, and the remarkably vibrant nonagenarian even does a brief dance!

Angela Lansbury, another TV mainstay and Disney veteran, also pops up. As does one of today's hottest showbiz names, Lin-Manuel Miranda, who plays Jack, a onetime apprentice to Van Dyke's original chimneysweep, Bert.
