The return of Mary Poppins in, erm, Mary Poppins Returns, has many people preparing to revisit a childhood favourite. But maybe another such fave has slipped into the movie?

A new “special look” featurette (below) includes the appearance of a dolphin. In a bathtub. Could this be our beloved Flipper making a cameo?

Yeah, probably not.

Anyway, the featurette shows much more of the animated side of Mary Poppins Returns than we’ve previously seen, and it really looks like it’s doing its best to rekindle the special magic of the 1964 original.

Mary Poppins Returns – starring Emily Blunt, Julie Walters, Colin Firth, Meryl Streep, Angela Lansbury and Mr Dick Van Dyke – is set to touch down in Australian cinemas on January 1, 2019.
