We spoke with director Robert Marshall and Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda – who plays Jack – to find out more about the upcoming release of Mary Poppins Returns.

Starring Emily Blunt in the title role, the cast also includes Meryl Streep, Angela Lansbury and Dick van Dyke. It features original songs and follows the Banks family decades after Mary Poppins' original visit.
