Watch: Tom Hanks Puts on Disney Charm in 'Saving Mr. Banks' Trailer
"Mary Poppins is not for sale." After the first look photo surfaced yesterday, Disney has released the first trailer for the charming Saving Mr. Banks, the true story of how Walt Disney brought Mary Poppins to the big screen. Emma Thompson plays author P.L. Travers who is not very impressed with Los Angeles or Disney himself, and even less excited about handing over the rights to her beloved creation. This looks like a real crowd pleaser with Tom Hanks as Disney and a supporting cast including Bradley Whitford, Paul Giamatti and Jason Schwartzman alongside B.J. Novak as the composing Sherman Brothers. Watch!
Here's the first trailer for John Lee Hancock's Saving Mr. Banks, originally from Moviefone:
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. Well?
