On December 1st, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Emily Blunt, Ben Whishaw, Emily Mortimer and Rob Marshall were on the East Coast to take part in The Contenders New York presented by Deadline.

The megazine shared a short report of the panel, below you can read the part about Miranda.

Hamilton Tony Award winner Lin-Manuel Miranda who plays lamplighter Jack, a variation on (but a different character) Dick Van Dyke’s Bert in the original movie, said that by the time cameras rolled, “we were a company just like Hamilton.” On the first day of production Blunt and Miranda were handed a hat and a cane for a dance number involving hand-drawn animated penguins, and that in and of itself speaks to Marshall’s point of harking back to the original.

The piece starts describing the first image of Mary Poppins Returns, that is all about Miranda apparently.

The first image you see in Mary Poppins Returns is a gas flame dancing in an old-fashioned street lamp, just before dawn. It’s an apt way to start the movie, which, more than half a century later, means to rekindle the spirit of Walt Disney’s 1964 adaptation of the P. L. Travers children’s books. Some would argue (well, I would) that the original Mary Poppins is the greatest of Walt Disney pictures—Disney, the actual man and studio head—so that crafting a sequel is a Herculean and possibly foolish task. Blame or salute director Rob Marshall (Chicago, Into the Woods), screenwriter David Magee (Life of Pi), and songwriters Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman (Hairspray). But here we are.

The second thing you see in Mary Poppins Returns is a close-up of Lin-Manuel Miranda, tending the flame literally and figuratively as a Cockney lamplighter named Jack. Those of us happy just to have had tickets in the rear balcony when we saw Hamilton, the epochal hip-hop musical Miranda wrote and starred in on Broadway, or In the Heights, his first show and the rare Broadway hit with Latin music actually written by Latinos, may not have realized how expressive his big brown eyes are, especially on a movie screen. Here, with his face shorn of its customary beard and mustache, those eyes, no longer counterbalanced by whiskers, look almost ridiculously, Keane-ian large. They’ve been unleashed, like a pair of excited puppies—adorable and up for anything. In tandem with the gaslight, they seem meant to welcome us into the magical, innocent, sentimental world of Mary Poppins Returns, and they give us the first hint that this thing might work.
