Walt Disney Pictures, Trailer
Since its release in 1964, "Mary Poppins" has dazzled millions of moviegoers with its beautiful songs, witty banter, and heartfelt storyline. On December 20, audiences will finally get a closer look at what went into making the movie in Disney's SAVING MR. BANKS. Below, check out the first official trailer for the film!
The new drama takes you inside the creative process of "Mary Poppins." Here, Walt Disney (played by Tom Hanks), the animator and studio mogul, desperately attempts to mount a production of the movie, while P.L. Travers (played by Emma Thompson), the notoriously protective author behind the original story, demands changes at every turn.
Today, Moviefone is thrilled to premiere the trailer for "Saving Mr. Banks." It's less a biopic than a dramatization about how creative conflict can give way to something truly exceptional. In addition toperformances by Hanks and Thompson, fans of Disney will be very happy to see The Sherman Brothers (played by Jason Schwartzman and B.J. Novak), the famous songwriting team behind the music in "Mary Poppins," as well as a 1961 Disneyland, when the park was just six years old.
