Now that every story has been told, Disney is now remaking all the cartoons in love action form and just to make sure these properties are being fully exploited here begins telling the story behind the movies. This story might well be worth telling, as although Mary Poppins is one of the most beloved children’s films of all time, author P.L. Travers fervently disliked the Disney production and the way she was treated by the studio.
Tom Hanks stars as Disney with Emma Thompson as Travers in the film directed by John Lee Hancock.
Saving Mr. Banks is released 17 January 2014 in the UK and 20 December 2013 in the US
