Two-time Academy Award winner® Emma Thompson and Oscar double winner®, Tom Hanks arrives on Disney's "Saving Mr. Banks," inspired by the untold story of how the Disney Classic Mary Poppins hits the giant screen.
When Walt Disney's daughter asked her to make a movie of her favorite P.L. Travers' book "Mary Poppins" he made a promise, which she never imagined would take 20 years to keep.
Saving Mr Banks opens in theaters in the United States on December 13, 2013.
In his quest to get the rights to the book, Walt encountered a writer who had no intention of letting his charming nanny appear on the Hollywood machine. But when the book stopped selling and the money was running out, Travers agreed to travel to Los Angeles to hear Disney's plans for adaptation.
In those two weeks of 1961, Walt Disney was armed with screenplays and imaginative songs from the talented Sherman brothers, Walt released everything to P.L. Travers, without much success. Walt began to realize that again the rights to the film were moving away from his hands.
That's when in her own childhood Walt discovers the truth of the ghosts that haunt her and together make Mary Poppins one of the best films in film history.
