Mary Poppins Returns Just Added Angela Lansbury, Here's Who She'll Play

Lansbury will portray the Balloon Lady, a character from P.L. Travers' series of Mary Poppins children's books. She's starred in "Bedknobs and Broomsticks" and voiced Mrs. Potts in the animated "Beauty and the Beast".

Walt Disney Studios officially announced today that Angela Lansbury has joined the cast of the upcoming sequel, Mary Poppins Returns.

The 91-year-old actor, who played chimney sweep Burt in 1964′s Mary Poppins, told the Hollywood Reporter: "This one supposedly takes place 20 years later and the kids are all grown up".




"Mary Poppins Returns" will also star Lin-Manuel Miranda, Ben Whishaw, Emily Mortimer, and Emily Blunt as the titular Mary Poppins herself. The legendary Meryl Streep will play Poppins' cousin.

Rob Marshall is set to direct Marry Poppins Returns and it'll be produced by Marc Platt, John DeLuca and Marshall.

The movie is now filming at Shepperton Studios in London. Lansbury was also given an honorary award for her long-standing brilliance in film. Michael is living with his three children (Pixie Davies, Nathanael Saleh, and Joel Dawson) and housekeeper Ellen (Julie Walters), in the house on Cherry Tree Lane. The screenplay is by Oscar-nominee David Magee (Life of Pi), based on The Mary Poppins Stories by PL Travers. The film is scheduled for release December 25, 2018. Oscar nominee Lin-Manuel Miranda ("Moana") plays street lamplighter Jack while three-time Oscar champ and current contender Meryl Streep ("Florence Foster Jenkins") takes on the role of Poppins' insane cousin Topsy.
