If you were to ask me to name the Disney films that should never, under any circumstances, be remade or get a belated sequel, 1964's Mary Poppins would be at or near the top of the list. It's as close to a perfect film as has ever been made and there's absolutely no reason to try and recapture that magic. This is Disney, though, and they're aching to make money on any little bit of nostalgia they can, so we all knew they were gonna do this, whether we wanted them to or not.

The good news is that they cast the absolute perfect person in the title role—and sadly, no, it's not Yondu. Emily Blunt steps into the iconic role made famous by Julie Andrews in the upcoming Mary Poppins Returns. Now, for those of you who've already doused your pitchforks in gasoline and are ready to light them, I have a bit of news that's sure to make you reconsider. Lin-Manuel Miranda is playing a character named Jack, so while he's clearly playing the Bert role, it's not actually Bert. So don't get your nostalgia panties in a bunch.

Now, on the outside chance none of this brought a smile to your face, I recommend this Mary Poppins trailer for a film we'll sadly never, ever see. But it's fun to dream...
