Here’s Your First Look at Emily Blunt and Lin-Manuel Miranda Together in ‘Mary Poppins Returns’

Of all the things we’re most excited for in the New Year that lies ahead of us, the debut of Disney’s Mary Poppins Returns is right up there with the best of them. While we’ve still got a while to go — the film won’t be released until December (womp, womp) — the House of Mouse has just the thing to tide us over.

USA Today released the first snap of Emily Blunt (AKA Mary Poppins) and Lin-Manuel Miranda, who will play Jack the lamplighter, together, and it’s every bit as gratuitous as you might expect.

In the shot, we see the two A-listers having a blast as they ride down the street with Michael Banks’ (now fully grown) three little ones, John, Georgie, and Anabel, as a horrified Jane (Emily Mortimer) and Ellen (Julie Walters) look on.

It’s at once new and modern, yet also reminiscent of the magical carousel ride the original Mary Poppins once took with Bert, Jane, and Michael.

Between this, the film’s super cool moving poster, the Mary Poppins teaser shot Disney released back in March, and a cast which also includes Dick Van Dyke as a bank chairman, Colin Firth as the bank’s new boss, Angela Lansbury as a balloon lady, and Meryl Streep (!) as an eccentric cousin named Topsy, we’re more excited than EVER to see this remake.

Cheers to 2018!

Ahhh, fall. There are so many things to love about this time of year (give us ALL the sweaters and pumpkin-flavored eats). But, high on the list comes autumn decor candles, throws, textiles — you name it. Of course, buying items and actually adding them to your room are two different things. So we're turning to Instagram for the best styling advice and inspo for the season. Scroll on to see everything you need to get those wheels turning!

@sbkliving: Sometimes, it only takes a chic doormat to transition your front steps for the season. Hello, fall!

@rachelpuccetti: Excuse us while we spend an entire lazy Sunday relaxing in this fall-infused space.

@farmhousetofrills: A monochrome mantel never looked so chic. (That fireplace pumpkin setup is seriously *genius*.)

@faith_hope_home: Greet guests with a fall-themed entrance to set the tone for a day of pumpkin carving or scary movie marathoning.

@simplysoutherncottage: Don't forget about those nooks and crannies! This entryway/mudroom situation is capturing our little harvest-loving hearts.

@6thirtydecor: Speaking of pumpkins, pick up a few extra gourds to pave the way into your cozy autumn abode.

@farmsteadonfirst: That guest bedroom you weren't sure what to do with it? Transform it into a rustic retreat with some fall signage and mustard-yellow and green accents.

@fiddleleafinteriors: We're going to take a second to *swoon* over this adorable kitchen setup. Those farmhouse accents and simple centerpiece setup? We're in love.

@ohmydearblog: Contrary to what you think, florals *aren't* just for spring. Bring them into your abode by selecting buds in moody tones to pay homage to the season.

@simply.mrs.z: Drawn to modern style? Play up the Halloween vibes by picking black, orange and brass accents to rock on places like your bookshelf. (Bonus points for carrying the theme over to your textiles.)

@drivewaytodreams_crystal: We're going to go ahead and give two thumbs up to all of these orange-hued accents. Backdropped with a neutral furnishings and they truly *pop*!

@cripcollectiveig: For those who don't want to go overboard with the "fall stuff" this one will speak to you. Compile a couple of cute throws and a minimalist pumpkin print on your mantle and you're set

@cavcottage: Who said fun pillows were limited to furnishings only? We're ALL about this entry display.

@houseon77th: This daybed setup is a *dream*. But actually, this would be the perfect space to doze off in come the colder days.

@kristenforgione: For a more festive Halloween look, overhaul your living space with a spooky handmade addition like this one. *Googles paper bat DIYs.*
