Entertainment Weekly has shared an exclusive new poster for Disney’s next major live-action feature, Saving Mr. Banks. Even though this poster is quite simplistic, it represents the overarching theme and main conflict of the film.
Tom Hanks is playing the iconic role of Walt Disney and Emma Thompson is playing the role of Mary Poppins author P.L. Travers. The author was originally against turning her beloved novel into a film and very protective of her work, but Walt Disney was determined to show her what he could do with the story. During the process of making Mary Poppins, Travers was very involved and opinionated, having something to say about every aspect of the film.
Saving Mr. Banks also stars Paul Giamatti, Jason Schwartzman, Bradley Whitford, Colin Farrell, Ruth Wilson, B.J. Novak, Rachel Griffiths, and Kathy Baker. This film looks fantastic and I am personally looking forward to seeing it later this year. If you have not seen the first official trailer yet, be sure to watch it here!
What do you think of this new poster for the film? What do you think of the cast involved? Do you think the first trailer revealed too much of the storyline? Saving Mr. Banks has two premiere dates with a limited release on December 13 and a wide release December 20, 2013!
