"Mary Poppins" is making a comeback! Talks are heating up about a sequel to the Disney classic.

Julie Andrews won an Oscar for playing the magical nanny in the 1964 film. The new story will reportedly take place 20 years after the first one with depression-era London as the backdrop.

This time, actress Emily Blunt is expected to play Poppins. The Oscar nominee is known for roles in "Into the Woods" and "The Devil Wears Prada."

Disney is the parent company of ABC.
