Saving Mr. Banks: First Look at Tom Hanks as Walt Disney

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Despite his purported questionable personal beliefs, not unlike the Orson Scott Card drama, I am a huge fan of Walt Disney. Love the movies, the characters, the entire universe built up around them... I love it all.

So you can imagine my excitement over the upcoming Tom Hanks' movie, Saving Mr. Banks.

Tom Hanks as Walt Disney in Saving Mr. Banks

While we got a good look at the Walt Disney mustache when Hanks popped up on the Martin Short episode of SNL, in this first official release from Saving Mr. Banks, we see Tom Hanks as Walt Disney in his element.

Also appearing with Hanks is the always beautiful Emma Thompson. She plays the uptight, turn a piece of coal to a diamond, British scribe, P.L. Travers. 

The "Mr. Banks" of the title would be that of the character found in Travers' novel, Mary Poppins. The film follows the behind the scenes story of Disney's adaptation of Travers' novel. 

In my perfect world, Julie Andrews makes some kind of cameo, but we'll have to wait and see.

Saving Mr. Banks opens on December 25th.
