Emily Blunt soars onto the cover of Vogue magazine as Mary Poppins. Emily Blunt stars as the practically-perfect nanny with unique magical skills who can turn any ordinary task into an unforgettable, fantastic adventure and Lin-Manuel Miranda plays her friend Jack, an optimistic street lamplighter who helps bring light-and life-to the streets of London.

The 35-year-old actress covers the December issue of Vogue, available nationwide November 23, and opens up about taking on the iconic role, as well as returning to work only six weeks after giving birth to daughter Violet.

Wearing a Dior jacket, skirt, and hat with a London Undercover umbrella, Blunt appears practically ideal in every way and, as she soars into the sky, provides the obligatory magic of a December cover.

Needless to say, fans of Blunt, Leibovitz, and Poppins can't get enough of the images.

"This photoshoot legit choked me up", wrote another. "They're just insane. They've lost their minds.' But it was such a big vision, and it was so ambitious that I said, 'Oh well, I want to be in it, absolutely.' Right away".

Sarkar Gets Dethroned By Thugs Of Hindostan At The Box Office?
The keenly anticipated film " Thugs of Hindostan " had its release a day after Diwali but it got the worst reviews of the year. As per reports in Box-Office India, it has managed to garner only Rs 28 cr (approx) on its second day at the ticket windows.

In her interview accompanying the shoot, Blunt revealed that when the producers of "Mary Poppins Returns" approached her about the role, they'd already decided that they would only make the film if she said yes.

"I was a kid and I remember every single one of the sets and all the people in it and the songs and the music and the spirit of it", she said. She's rare in this world because she's incredibly warm and amusing, and has a great deal of vulnerability as well.

Blunt first became attached to Mary Poppins Returnsin 2015 after director Rob Marshall gave her a call. "It was ridiculous", she jokes, adding that she then told the director she needed time off. The downtime allowed the actress to really immerse herself in the Mary Poppins world and create her own version of the character made famous by Julie Andrews in the 1964 original.

"You could say she's some sort of angel".
