Disney's D23 Expo event in Anaheim today (July 15) yielded a massive range of goodies, including Star Wars: The Last Jedi behind-the-scenes footage and a trailer for Avengers: Infinity War (which they haven't released).
One particular highlight was some teaser footage for Mary Poppins Returns.
While the clips haven't yet been released, Digital Spy was lucky enough to be in the room to catch it – and it's all a bit magical.
As the footage began, we saw Jack the Lamplighter (Lin-Manuel Miranda) helping Michael's son fly a kite. They start pulling harder, and off in the distance Mary is floating down from the sky with her umbrella. It looked amazing.
Here's a lovely motion poster featuring Mary and her umbrella for you to enjoy, too.
The brief teaser shown at D23 also had a Lamplighter dance number, and Dick Van Dyke, playing a bank chairman, dancing on a desk.
It ended with Michael (Ben Whishaw) and Jane (Emily Mortimer) reminiscing about their childhood.
"Those things when we were younger, they didn't really happen?" Jane says.
"No," Michael replied.
"Ridiculous," Jane says... while behind them, Mary is floating up the banister.
The residents of the convention centre were treated to a live orchestral backing to the footage too, which was rather special.
Emily Blunt and director Rob Marshall were in attendance, with Blunt describing the movie as "a big old musical".
"It was thrilling to do the new numbers," she added, before telling Marshall: "You have this amazing ability to make us feel like we can do anything."
Mary Poppins Returns, also starring Julie Walters, Meryl Streep, Colin Firth and Angela Lansbury, opens on December 21 next year in UK cinemas.
