The Devil Wears Prada star donned a flowing green trench coat as she made her way to the studio.

She paired it with a black jumper with diamond and striped detail and matching gingham high-waisted pants with flared legs. She topped off the look with a silver necklace and a pair of heels.

In the new film, set two decades after the original, Mary Poppins returns to the home of Jane and Michael Banks, the children whom she cared for in the first movie, after a family tragedy.

Along with Emily, the film also stars Lin-Manuel Miranda as Jack, a cockney lamplighter.

Colin Firth stars as William 'Weatherall' Wilkinsm the current president of Fidelity Fiduciary Bank and Meryl Streep plays Topsy, Mary Poppins' eccentric Eastern European cousin.

It has won rave reviews from critics, with both the National Board of Review and the American Film Institute selecting it as one of the top 10 films of 2018.

Emily revealed that her role in Mary Poppins Returns ups her 'cool factor' with her daughters Hazel, 4, and Violet, 2, who she shares with husband John Krasinski.

Making an appearance on Good Morning America, she said: 'Well my daughter quite likes me to do the voice for her sometimes, I think my cool factor hits the sky when I do that.

'She’ll say "do your Mary Poppins voice" and I’ll say "spit spot and off we go" and she literally goes [Emily gasps] she loves it.

The actress then joked: 'I’m going to dine out on that until they become teenagers and I become inevitably uncool.'

Emily previously revealed that she didn't rewatch the original Mary Poppins film, and admitted it was because she 'didn't want to be intimidated by it'.

But the Londoner did watch the classic again after she had finished filming, as she said: 'I watched it thinking thank god I didn’t watch this before otherwise I would have been like "Rob [Marshall, the film's director], I’m out, recast it!"'
