Something Wicked this way…still comes. Two years after a film adaptation of the smash hit stage musical was announced, Universal struck Wicked’s planned 2019 release date from its roster. But the musical’s creator Stephen Schwartz insists that — despite the lack of a release date — the Wicked movie is still in the works.

Lin-Manuel Miranda is best known as the writer and star of the Broadway smash Hamilton, but pretty soon, he may be just as well-known for his work in Disney musicals. After snagging an Oscar nomination for his songwriting work on Moana, Miranda steps in front of the camera in Mary Poppins Returns, where he plays a singing and dancing lamplighter named Jack. With Dick Van Dyke’s Burt nowhere to be seen, Jack gets to fill that role in Rob Marshall’s sequel to the Disney classic. It certainly helps that Jack grew up as Burt’s young protege.

When we visited the set of Mary Poppins Returns last year, we sat down with Miranda for a moderated Q&A. He spoke about the differences between working on stage musicals and film musicals, his fondness for the original movie, and getting to meet (and work with) the legendary Dick Van Dyke.

But not every actress is Emily Blunt, the phenomenally talented performer who can play everything from English royalty to badass alien killers. If anyone can play everyone’s favorite magical nanny, it’s her.

While visiting the set of Mary Poppins Returns last year, we were able to spend a few minutes with Blunt for a moderated Q&A, where she spoke about taking over an iconic character, stumbling through dance sequences, and making Mary Poppins her own.

Last year, I flew across the Atlantic Ocean to visit London, England. Specifically, I visited London, England so I could visit a recreation of London, England on a series of sound stages at Shepperton Studios. But this wasn’t just any recreation of London. This was the London of Mary Poppins Returns, a London full of magic and whimsy and yes, lots and lots of music.

A direct sequel to the 1964 original, Mary Poppins Returns stars Emily Blunt as the magical nanny and Lin-Manuel Miranda as Jack, her new partner-in-song-and-dance. Rob Marshall, the director of Chicago and Into the Woods, is behind the camera and everything we saw on set suggests that this movie should be a delight.
