I’m in love with the latest Saving Mr. Banks poster, isn’t it just so magical?!
Two-time Academy Award®–winner Emma Thompson and fellow double Oscar®-winner Tom Hanks topline Disney’s Saving Mr. Banks, inspired by the extraordinary, untold backstory of how Disney’s classic Mary Poppins made it to the screen.
When Walt Disney’s daughters begged him to make a movie of their favorite book, P.L. Travers’ Mary Poppins, he made them a promise—one that he didn’t realize would take 20 years to keep. In his quest to obtain the rights, Walt comes up against a curmudgeonly, uncompromising writer who has absolutely no intention of letting her beloved magical nanny get mauled by the Hollywood machine. But, as the books stop selling and money grows short, Travers reluctantly agrees to go to Los Angeles to hear Disney’s plans for the adaptation.
Saving Mr. Banks will be the first non-animated movie I think I will take Jasmine to go see. When I first watched the first-look trailer with her, Jasmine asked to watch it.

Can’t wait for this movie! Mary Poppins is a favorite of my family so this is right up our alley.
That sounds fantastic! I can’t wait to see it!
