Today, the first round of media items for Saving Mr. Banks was released by Disney.
Saving Mr. Banks Synopsis
Saving Mr. Banks is the untold story of how Walt Disney, played by Tom Hanks, gets the rights for Mary Poppins from P.L. Travers, played by Emma Thompson. It centers on P.L. Travers’ inner debate of whether she should release the rights to make Mary Poppins as a movie.

A Suspension of Disbelief
When the movie was first announced, I was a little taken aback that Tom Hanks would be playing Walt Disney. Would he be able to pull it off? What would happen? From the trailer it seems that Tom Hanks has pulled of the Walt Disney look and that the movie will be fantastic.
For those who don’t quite agree with me, try to suspend disbelief long enough to fall into the story of P.L. Travers and Walt Disney.
The movie looks like it will be a huge success for Disney as they release the movie on December 13, 2013.
The movie will likely appeal to anyone who is a fan of Disney, Mary Poppins, Emma Thompson, or Tom Hanks. Luckily I am a fan of all four, so I don’t even need a spoonful of sugar to make this movie go down.
