First Look at Tom Hanks as Walt Disney in "Saving Mr. Banks"

First Look at Tom Hanks as Walt Disney in "Saving Mr. Banks"Submit Comment
Disney has unveiled the first official photo of Tom Hanks as Walt Disney in the upcoming "Saving Mr Banks" movie, which co-stars Emma Thompson, Colin Farrell, Paul Giamatti, Bradley Whitford and Jason Schwartzman. It's directed by John Lee Hancock and set to hit theaters on December 13th. Check out the photo below.

Plot: The film centers on the creator of Mary Poppins, PL Travers (Thompson). The story shifts back and forth between 1961 and 1907, showing Travers during her childhood and her experience negotiating with Walt Disney (Hanks) for the film of Mary Poppins.

Travers father (Farrell) was a banker who slowly slid into alcoholism as the family fell into financial hardship. Travers looked up to her father, and the breaking of his spirit had an effect on her writing. She was extremely reluctant to sell Disney the rights to make Mary Poppins into a movie, mainly because the story was highly personal, and reflected hardships in her own life and her relationship with her father.

Although the movie made her a very wealthy woman, she disliked the animated sequences and other aspects of the film so much that she refused to sell any of her other works to Disney for the rest of her life.

Why not just make a whole movie based on the life and rise to fame of Walt Disney? Wouldn't that be better lol

Would never work. Walt supposedly didn't care for Jews or Blacks and if Hollywood tried to portray Walt the way a lot of people believe he was, Disney would sue them into oblivion.

This movie allows them to touch on Walt without engaging the man directly, which is smart, and the fact it's about a woman makes it look like they're "socially sensitive"...
