Two New Featurettes on the Music & Tom Hanks in 'Saving Mr. Banks'
In addition to the release of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug everywhere this Friday, the charming Walt Disney based film Saving Mr. Banks gets a limited release before expanding to theaters everywhere next Friday. Tom Hanks plays the creator of the legendary theme park, film studio and empire of magical characters and worlds as he tries to secure the rights to turn P.L. Travers (Emma Thompson) novel Mary Poppins for a feature film adaptation. Now we have two new featurettes for the film focusing on the music and also the iconic, Oscar-nominated actor who is Tom Hanks and how he became Walt Disney. Watch now!
Here are the two new featurettes for John Lee Hancock's Saving Mr. Banks from Disney:
Inspired by true events, Saving Mr. Banks is the extraordinary, untold story of how Disney’s musical classic Mary Poppins made it to the big screen and the testy relationship that the legendary Walt Disney (Tom Hanks) had with author P.L. Travers (Emma Thompson) that almost derailed the production from ever happening. John Lee Hancock (The Blind Side) directs the film written by "Terra Nova" writer Kelly Marcel, making her feature writing debut. Colin Farrell, Paul Giamatti and Jason Schwartzman also star in the film which gets a limited release on December 13th and hits theaters everywhere December 20th. Ready?
