Chim Chim Cher-ee is my favorite Mary Poppins song and I absolutely adore Julie Andrews in that black dress. Although, I have to admit, I’ve never watched Mary Poppins from start to finish. I can’t even really tell you what the movie is about other than she’s a magical nanny who believes that a spoonful of sugar makes the medicine go down. At the recent D23 Expo I viewed exclusive footage on the upcoming film Saving Mr. Banks. This is the back story of how the classic film leapt from the pages of P.L. Travers book onto the big screen.
I have to say that my lack of knowledge on the film deflated my excitement for Saving Mr. Banks UNTIL I saw the footage at the expo. I am totally sold on the movie and I CAN NOT wait to see more of Tom Hanks (as Walt Disney) and Emma Thompson (as P.L. Travers). The film is shot entirely at Walt Disney Studios in Burbank as well as Disneyland. I’ve been to both spots numerous times and it will be awesome to retrace their footsteps. The scenes that I watched were hysterical and the casting was perfect. I kept seeing Walt Disney’s face as Tom Hank’s flashed across the scene.
Films inspired by true events usually give me the chills! We’re learning so much about the legendary Walt Disney and I can’t wait to see Tom Hanks portray him in this film!
