This is supercalifragilisticexpialidocious news!

Emily Blunt is the front-runner to star in a sequel to Disney’s classic musical Mary Poppins!

Nothing has been finalized and the actress is pregnant with her second child, so it’s hard to say how much she can schedule but sources tell VarietyJohn Krasinski’s better half is the clear favorite to reprise the role of the magic nanny.

The sequel will take place 20 years after the events of the original film, in Depression-era London, and revolves around now-adult Michael Banks and his own children. The mysterious Poppins reappears to help the family once again, according to The Wrap.

You have to admit, it’s not hard to imagine the actress in the timeless role!
