Saving Mr. Banks

Saving Mr. Banks is the much-anticipated movie telling the back story of how Disney's classic film Mary Poppins came to be. Saving Mr. Banks depicts author P.L. Travers and her visit to Los Angeles, as she's persuaded by Walt Disney in his attempts to secure the screen rights to her novel. The movie is due out in December.

Emma Thompson plays Travers, and Tom Hanks plays Walt Disney. This film marks the first time Walt is portrayed by an actor on screen. How do you think Tom Hanks will do in the role?

The official poster for Saving Mr. Banks was released this week. Check out the great shadow play...

  1. Wow, the trailer looks GREAT! It sounds like a wonderful backstory - one I had never heard before. Can't wait to see it! Tom Hanks is a perfect choice for Walt.
