Saving Mr. Banks

Two-time Academy Awardwinner Emma Thompson and fellow double Oscar-winner Tom Hanks topline Disneys Saving Mr. Banks, inspired by the extraordinary, untold backstory of how Disneys classic Mary Poppins made it to the screen.

When Walt Disneys daughters begged him to make a movie of their favorite book, P.L. Travers Mary Poppins, he made them a promiseone that he didnt realize would take 20 years to keep. In his quest to obtain the rights, Walt comes up against a curmudgeonly, uncompromising writer who has absolutely no intention of letting her beloved magical nanny get mauled by the Hollywood machine. But, as the books stop selling and money grows short, Travers reluctantly agrees to go to Los Angeles to hear Disneys plans for the adaptation.

For those two short weeks in 1961, Walt Disney pulls out all the stops. Armed with imaginative storyboards and chirpy songs from the talented Sherman brothers, Walt launches an all-out onslaught on P.L. Travers, but the prickly author doesnt budge.He soon begins to watch helplessly as Travers becomes increasingly immovable and the rights begin to move further away from his grasp.

It is only when he reaches into his own childhood that Walt discovers the truth about the ghosts that haunt her, and together they set Mary Poppins free to ultimately make one of the most endearing films in cinematic history.

Inspired by true events, Saving Mr. Banks is the extraordinary, untold story of how Disneys classic Mary Poppins made it to the screenand the testy relationship that the legendary Walt Disney had with author P.L. Travers that almost derailed it.

“Saving Mr. Banks is the first film to depict the iconic entrepreneur Walt Disney. The film will release in U.S. theaters on December 13, 2013, limited, and open wide on December 20, 2013.
