Walt Disney Pictures is proud to present the motion picture Saving Mr. Banks, on Blu-ray™ and DVD on March 24th 2014. To celebrate the release, we are giving away 3 copies of this delightful film on Blu-ray.
Discover the extraordinary, untold story of how one of the most beloved tales of all time, Mary Poppins, was bought to the big screen. Starring Double Oscar® winner Tom Hanks and two-time Academy Award®–winner Emma Thompson brings to life the gripping tale about the origins of one of the most treasured Disney classics.
Walt Disney (Hanks) tries for twenty years to obtain the rights to legendary author, P.L. Travers’ (Thompson) beloved books’ story. Armed with artistic storyboards and effervescent songs from the musical legends, the Sherman brothers, Walt launches an all-out onslaught on P.L. Travers, but the prickly author doesn’t budge.
He soon begins to watch helplessly as Travers becomes increasingly immovable and the rights begin to move further away from his grasp. But, as the books stop selling and money grows short, Travers reluctantly agrees to go to Los Angeles to hear Disney’s plans for the adaptation.
It is only when he reaches into his own childhood that Walt discovers the truth about the ghosts that haunt Travers, and together they set Mary Poppins free to ultimately make one of the most endearing films in cinematic history.
John Lee Hancock directs this acclaimed film that reveals the surprising back-story of the Oscar award winning classic Mary Poppins. Brilliantly Produced by Alison Owen, Ian Collie and Philip Steuer, and written by Kelly Marcel and Sue Smith.
Thompson received BAFTA Award, Golden Globe Award, SAG Award, and Critic’s Choice Award nominations for Best Actress, while Thomas Newman’s film score received an Academy Award nomination for Best Original Score.
