Following the first photo that was released for John Lee Hancock's "Saving Mr. Banks" earlier this week, the first trailer has now arrived online as well. The film stars the always incredible Tom Hanks as Disney himself, as well as Emma Thompson, who portrays "Mary Poppins" author P.L. Travers. Talk about the role of a lifetime for Hanks.
The film follows Disney's perseverance as he tries to convince Travers that his company should be allowed to turn her book into a film. Travers was skeptical at the thought and the picture shows her with her arms crossed, not buying into Disney's charm, as he attempts to win her over.
Disney was such a fascinating and passionate man, so ahead of his time. I'm really excited to see the evolution and story on how his eventual empire came to fruition.
