The sequel to the movie will take place a little over twenty years after the original, focusing on Michael and Jane as grown ups with families of their own.
According to Entertainment Weekly, the cast is going to be completely star studded, too;
“In addition to Blunt, the principal cast also includes Lin-Manuel Miranda as a musical lamplighter named Jack, Meryl Streep as Mary’s cousin Topsy, Colin Firth as banker William Weatherall Wilkins, Julie Walters as loyal housekeeper Ellen, and a trio of newcomers filling the roles of Michael Banks’ children. Original star Dick Van Dyke will also make a featured appearance in the sequel.”
