I don’t think I have felt such a buzz about the Disney community as much as I have today. Saving Mr Banks has instantly become a must see. This could be exactly what Walt Disney Pictures needs right now.
Saving Mr Banks is based upon the back story of Walt Disney trying to convince P.L. Travers to allow him to buy the rights to Mary Poppins the Novel to make a film. Without adding a spoiler here, we all know that it must have worked as the film was released in 1964. The interesting part of the story for me will be what lengths did Walt have to go. However the other plot line will be elaborating on the relationship between Mary Poppins and Mr Banks or Mary Poppins and P.L. Travers.
I recall hearing a recording of working notes on the production of the original Film, where it was suggested that Mary Poppins and Mr Banks had once known each other as she had been his nanny!
The film is due out Christmas 2013.
