Everyone's favorite nanny is about to float back to screens in 2018's Mary Poppins Returns. Thanks to the magic of Disney, Poppins will come back to the children of the family that she once helped as they handle a personal crisis. The actress with the honor of bringing the character to life this time around is Emily Blunt.

In usual Disney fashion, the new adventure has been carefully kept behind a thick veil of secrecy. So other than one beautiful picture and a brief synopsis, there's very little we know about the sequel.

One of the film's most highly-anticipated elements is the music. The original Mary Poppins is best known for her catchy, uplifting and downright iconic numbers, so the second chapter has some pretty big magic purses to fill. But worry not — thanks to some new information, we might know what to expect in the musical department once the movie comes around.

John Krasinski, Emily Blunt's husband, gave an interview to CinemaBlend in which he revealed that his wife gave him the chance to listen to the movie's new repertoire — and the new pieces made him cry:

"I have heard, I think, nearly all of [the new songs]. And listen, it's not hard to make me cry... But I cried at almost every single one of them. It is so incredibly magical, and I am so honored to have heard it. It's going to be something so special, I don't think people are even ready for it. I was blown away."

A new Mary Poppins movie with mind-blowing music? Yes, please! Granted, Krasinski's opinion could be a bit biased, so we can't base the awesomeness of the songs entirely on this statement. Disney, however, has had an almost spotless track-record with its modern retellings, especially in the music department. The most recent example of that successful retelling is Beauty and the Beast.

While creative freedom was kept to a minimum in favor of closely following the source material, it delivered an amazing story with great songs. That's ultimately what Marry Poppins Returns needs, and I'm sure Disney will deliver.

Do you have any doubt that the House of Mouse has another classic up its sleeve here? Did you even pay attention to John Krasinski? On a side note, I don't know about you, but if this movie doesn't have a modern version of 'Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious' I'm going to be depressed.

Even if you can't wait to see whether the songs make you cry too, you're going to have to exercise exactly the sort of patience required for a top-notch nanny, as Mary Poppins Returns is scheduled to fly into theaters on December 25, 2018.
