Lin-Manuel Miranda has some pretty big shoes to fill in Mary Poppins Returns, specifically Dick Van Dyke’s soot-covered shoes.
The Mary Poppins reboot, starring Emily Blunt as our lead, takes place 20 years after the original and Miranda will play a lamplighter named Jack.
Hear him dish more about the movie during an interview with Good Morning America below. Jump ahead to 2:25 seconds in to hear him talk Poppins!
Although Miranda says his character is very different from Bert, let’s hope there’s just as much dancing!
And to get you even more excited, queen Meryl Streep is also starring in the remake, playing the part of Mary’s cousin Topsy.
Mary Poppins Returns hits theatres Dec. 25, 2018.
