Saving Mr Banks documents the journey that Walt Disney took to make the 1934 published novel Mary Poppins into a motion picture. The film will be directed by John Lee Hancock, the director of award winning film The Blind Side and Walt will be played by award winning actor Tom Hanks.
Tom Hanks to Play Mr Walt Disney
Finally a Walt Disney picture that casts Walt Disney himself!
Tom Hanks is set to play Walt Disney in a film titled Saving Mr Banks.
Shockingly, Saving Mr Banks will reveal the distress that Mary Poppins’ author, P L Travers, felt due to her dissatisfaction with the 1964 Disney film adaptation of her novel. How a film that condones a spoonful of sugar can cause any distress is beyond us, but we’re definitely looking forward to finding out.
This is a double treat for Disney fans and Mary Poppins fans alike. Not only will you get to see Tom Hanks work his magic as Walt Disney, but you’ll get to witness how Mary Poppins, the Disney picture came to be.
The film is in very early stages of development at present, but if you fancy a Mary Poppins fix, use your Disney tickets to meet and greet the cherished nanny at Epcot.
