The first look begins with a green kite blowing in the wind through a dark, Great Depression-era London. It flies past Jack (Lin-Manuel Miranda) as he rides his bike through town. The kite then nearly knocks off another local man’s hat before a young boy catches and plays with it.

The sequel takes place 25 years after the first movie and also stars Meryl Streep, Angela Lansbury and Colin Firth.
