First look at Tom Hanks as Walt Disney in Saving Mr. Banks

SAVING MR. BANKS

Here is your first look at Tom Hanks as Walt Disney and Emma Thompson as author P.L. Travers in the upcoming film Saving Mr. Banks.

The film tells the true tale of Disney’s efforts to bring Travers’ tale Mary Poppins to the big screen; their difficult relationship almost threatening to derail the project.

Considering the director behind this is John Lee Hancock (The Blind Side) and that the film is being produced by Walt Disney Studios, don’t expect to see the darker side of Walt in this flick.

The story does, however, sound intriguing, and the cast includes such reliable talents as Colin Farrell, Paul Giamatti, Ruth Wilson, Rachel Griffiths, Jason Schwartzman, Bradley Whitford, and B.J. Novak.

Plus, screenwriter Kelly Marcel was recently tapped to adapt Fifty Shades of Grey for the big screen. Maybe there will be a kinky twist to this film after all!

Saving Mr. Banks hits cinemas February 2014. Disney are clearly hoping to capitalise on some inevitable Oscar nods.
