“Mary Poppins is a real person?”
That is the line that stuck out to us when we first saw the trailer to the Disney’s newest film, Saving Mr. Banks. Turns out that everyone’s favorite “practically perfect in every way” nanny was just as much real as you and I.
The movie tells the untold story of what it took to turn the Mary Poppins book series into the film that we all know and love today. In its two and a half-minute clip, the trailer reveals what it took for the head mouse himself, Walt Disney to get approval from the author, P.L. Travers even though she was amid about the series not being turned into a film.
Disney who is played by Tom Hanks, takes all types of measures to try and convince Travers, played by Emma Thompson, to allow him and his crew to turn the book into the movie that would become a cult classic.
Cut to Travers throwing out the music sheet for “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.” Painful, no?
Anyways, check out the full trailer here and tell us what you think of Hanks’ take on Mr. Disney and what you think about the movie so far.
Saving Mr. Banks will be getting a limited release date of December 13, but will get a wide release date of December 20, just in time for Christmas.
