Saving Mr Banks


SAVING MR. BANKS

The first trailer has appeared for Saving Mr Banks starring Tom Hanks, Emma Thompson, Colin Farrell, and Jason Schwartzman. The film tells the story of Disney’s big-screen adaption of Mary Poppins, with Thompson playing the role of British author PL Travers and Hanks playing Walt Disney himself. Travers was famously unhappy with the Robert Stevenson-directed film, feeling that his depiction of the characters was inaccurate. The relationship with her real-life father (played by Colin Farrell) is also likely to play a major part of the film. The film is due for release on 13 December in the US and 17 January, 2014, in the UK.
