The untold true story of how Mary Poppins came to be Saving Mr. Banks is out on Blu Ray and DVD Tuesday March 18th!! Now you can share all the heart and love that this movie brings to anyone who watches it. I said before in my review that I now watch Mary Poppins with a different perspective and a greater appreciation for all that was put in to make the movie. Tom Hanks and Emma Thompson are a fantastic team playing Walt Disney and P.L Travers making you feel like you were there for the whole process of making the film and knowing exactly what they were feeling.
Saving Mr. Banks is a fantastic film filled with humor, heart ,that engages you from the beginning and holds on to you well after you have turned off the dvd player. The characters are brought to life by the fantastic people who portray them leaving you feeling as if you were actually glimpsing into past events. By the end you want to embrace Mary Poppins like never before.(**Warning** have tissues handy..we’re talking ugly cry here people!!)
“Tom Hanks and Emma Thompson bring to life the untold true story about the origins of one of the most treasured Disney classics of all time. John Lee Hancock (The Blind Side) directs this acclaimed film, which reveals the surprising backstory behind the making of Mary Poppins. Determined to fulfill a promise to his daughters, Walt Disney (Hanks) tries for twenty years to obtain the rights to author P.L. Travers’ (Thompson) beloved book. Armed with his iconic creative vision, Walt pulls out all the stops, but the uncompromising Travers won’t budge. Only when he reaches into his own complicated childhood does Walt discover the truth about the ghosts that haunt Travers, and together, the set Mary Poppins free.”
“On Blu-ray and Digital HD, Saving Mr. Banks sweeps viewers away with enchanting high definition picture and sound, plus delightful, never-before-seen bonus features, including “The Walt Disney Studios: From Poppins to Present,” in which director John Lee Hancock takes viewers on an insider’s tour of Disney Studios today and reflects on studio life during the creation of Mary Poppins. Additional bonus materials include “Let’s Go Fly a Kite,” in which the film’s cast and crew sing an impromptu version of the iconic song on set during the last day of shooting, and deleted Scenes.”
