I am so excited about the first film to portray icon Walt Disney called Saving Mr. Banks due out December 2oth! This film is about  the extraordinary untold backstory of how Disney’s classic Mary Poppins made it to the screen and stars Tom Hanks and Emma Thompson!  Mary Poppins is one of my favorite movies of all time, I cannot wait to hear the story behind it!

Walt Disney began his 20 year quest to get the rights to Mary Poppins from the author P.L. Travers in the 1940s as a promise to his two daughters. Despite Disney’s wooing, Travers did not want her magical nanny to be destroyed by the Hollywood Machine.  In the end they worked together to make one of the most imaginative and iconic movies of all time, and one of my personal favorites.
