Colin Firth is in negotiations to co-star in Disney’s Mary Poppins sequel. He will be joining a cast being headed up by Emily Blunt as the magical nanny.

Others in the cast include Lin-Manuel Miranda as a lamplighter named Jack and Meryl Streep, who will be playing Mary’s equally magical cousin. Firth is set to play William Weatherall Wilkins, president of Fidelity Fiduciary Bank.

The film’s story, written by Oscar nominee David Magee will center on Michael and Jane Banks, the two children from the first film, receiving a return visit from their nanny some twenty-five years later.

The film is being directed by Rob Marshall with composer Marc Shaiman collaborating with Scott Wittman on original songs. The studio has the film slated for a Christmas 2018 release.
