The 34-year-old beauty has showcased her slender figure in an elegant form-fitting floral print dress, as maker revealed the first glimpse of her in character.

Emily explained that following in Julie Andrews’ footsteps was a daunting but exciting prospect.

‘I found that I watched about 15 minutes of the original and then just stopped watching it because I needed to kind of try and pay homage to what Julie did but carve out new space for myself,’ she said on stage, continuing: ‘No one is ever going to out-Julie Julie Andrews. She’s just unbelievable.

‘There will never be anyone else like her. So I just had to do my version of her and I think we were very loyal to the books. I think she is a little more sort of acerbic and odd and vain and weird in the books. And so we went that direction a little more. So it’s my version of her!’

A 20-second teaser was released, which shows Emily in the titular tole in Mary Poppins Returns, which is due for release at Christmas next year.

She was joined by director Rob Marshall, as they discussed the sequel which sees Mary returning to Cherry Tree Lane some 20 years after first leaving Jane and Michael Banks – played by Emily Mortimer and Ben Whishaw respectively.

It also stars Lin-Manuel Mirand as lamplighter Jack, Meryl Streep as Mary’s eccentric cousin Topsy, and Angela Lansbury as the Balloon Lady.
