Today, The Walt Disney Studios began principal photography on Saving Mr. Banks, which explores the partnership that developed between the filmmaker and the author during pre-production on Mary Poppins in 1961. Two-time Academy Award®-winner Tom Hanks stars as Walt Disney alongside fellow double Oscar®-winner Emma Thompson as P.L. Travers. In addition to Hanks and Thompson, Saving Mr. Banks boasts a stellar cast including Colin Farrell, Ruth Wilson, Rachel Griffiths, Bradley Whitford, Jason Schwartzman, B.J. Novak, Paul Giamatti, Kathy Baker, and newcomer Annie Buckley as the young Travers. Kelly Marcel (Terra Nova) wrote the screenplay, from a story by Sue Smith and Marcel.
