Without further ado and looking practically perfect in every way, here is the latest picture of actress Emily Blunt as the delightful Mary Poppins.

The 34-year-old takes the title role in Mary Poppins Returns, due for release next year.

By the time fans see Emily, complete with her famous brolly and bag, when the film is relased in December 2018, it will have been 44 years since the original film starring Julie Andrews.

The D23 Expo, taking place in Los Angeles, teased the forthcoming sequel Mary Poppins Returns and showed a short clip of Blunt in the title role.

Directed by Rob Marshall, it will also star Meryl Streep and Colin Firth, and is due to be released in cinemas at Christmas 2018.

Another big release teased at the event was a live-action remake of the 1941 animation Dumbo, which will be directed by Tim Burton and stars Colin Farrell, Danny DeVito, Eva Green and Michael Keaton, slated for March 29 2019.

Dumbo is not the only Disney classic set for the live-action treatment - there will also be a new Aladdin starring Mena Massoud, Naomi Scott and Will Smith, while Mulan is in for a remake, too.

A sneak peek at Jon Favreau's live-action remake of The Lion King, featuring CGI lions, provoked an emotional response from the crowd.

The Nutcracker And The Four Realms, based on the Christmas tale about a young girl's soldier doll, will be adapted for the big screen, featuring Keira Knightley as the Sugar Plum Fairy as well as Morgan Freeman and Helen Mirren.

A first trailer for the film debuted at the convention and a release date of November 2 2018 was announced.
