Saving Mr. Banks: Is Tom Hanks Making a "Saving" Trilogy?

by at .  Updated at . Comments

When it was announced that Tom Hanks was Walt Disney in Saving Mr. Banks, we could not think of a better showman to play the ultimate showman. Saving Mr. Banks tells the story of Disney’s decades-long passion to bring P.L. Travers’ (Emma Thompson) book Mary Poppins to the big screen. Travers was none too keen on letting the “man with the cartoon mouse” make her beloved nanny into a movie. Yet, with her finances in trouble -- one fateful year in the early 1960s -- she changed her mind, and the film chronicles the incredible effort it took to make Mary Poppins the classic we all know it is.
