Meryl Streep has joined the cast of Mary Poppins Returns, reports the Guardian. When Disney first issued press releases that the studio was creating a sequel to the 1964 award-winning classic, fans were skeptical of the new project. With news that Streep will be working alongside Emily Blunt and Hamilton’s Lin Manuel-Miranda, the new film sounds like it could be shaping up to become practically perfect after all.

Meryl will be playing the role of Topsy Tartlet, a maid featured in P.L. Traver’s Mary Poppins Comes Back. Topsy is also Poppin’s cousin by marriage who married Arthur Turvey and later became Topsy Turvy. Blunt has the coveted role of Poppins, made famous by Julie Andrews, and Manuel-Miranda will be taking the role of Jack, a street lamplighter.
