Mary Poppins is back—and she’s floating down to Earth on her own coattails.

The teaser trailer for Mary Poppins Returns debuted at the Oscars Sunday night, giving us our first look at the decades-in-the-making sequel. It doesn’t reveal much, but it does capture the thrill of Mary (Emily Blunt) riding in on a kite in the midst of a blustery day while lamplighter Jack (Lin-Manuel Miranda) and a young child look on in amazement.

Though characters may not look familiar to us, their names and celebrity portrayals certainly are. Emily Mortimer and Ben Whishaw play an adult Jane and Michael Banks, giving Mary (and us) old friends to reconnect with.

Mary Poppins Returns will debut in theaters Dec. 24.
