The first trailer for Saving Mr. Banks is now online! We were very excited to get our first glimpse of Tom Hanks and Emma Thompson as Walt Disney and P.L. Travers. The trailer has definitely made us excited for the upcoming film, which releases in the USA on 13 December, 2013.
Our first thoughts? P.L. Travers probably wouldn’t like it. Our understanding is that the negotiations for Mary Poppins were very tense, and the film seems to make light of it a little. That said, we think we’ll love it. Jason Schwartzman and B.J. Novak delighted us in their brief moments in the trailer as the Sherman brothers, and Tom Hanks looks like he may give his best performance since Cast Away. Emma Thompson, of course, is always charming, even when she’s being awful. Make sure to watch the trailer below and tell us what you think of the film in the comments!
