Here's our first look at Lin-Manuel Miranda in Mary Poppins Returns!

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. A batch of stills from the filming of Mary Poppins Returns hit Twitter over the weekend and they give us another look at Emily Blunt filling in Julie Andrews' rather large (and still loud) shoes as Mary Poppins (looks like her parrot head umbrella has gotten a bit of a redo) as well as our first glimpse at Lin-Manuel Miranda's character, a lamp lighter named Jack, who I'm sure will confuse a whole generation of children who saw the original and are going to think he's playing a new Bert.



I know he'll do his own thing, but I really kinda sorta maybe want to see him do an outrageous Cockney accent. I don't know if I can handle a Mary Poppins sequel without one...

The cast on this is solid, the look is right. Rob Marshall's not my most favorite director in the world, but the man knows how to shoot a pretty looking movie and can handle musicals pretty well.

What do you folks think?
