Disney Announces New Dates for Saving Mr. Banks, Muppets Most Wanted, Planes, Tomorrowland and more

Walt Disney Studios

Walt Disney Studios

SAVING MR. BANKS

SAVING MR. BANKS (Disney)  is inspired by the extraordinary, untold backstory of how Disney’s classic “Mary Poppins” made it to the screen and the testy relationship that the legendary Walt Disney had with author P.L. Travers that almost derailed it.

  • Opens 12/13/13 limited and  12/20/13 wide playdate
  • Genre:    Drama  Rating:    PG-13
  • Cast:   Emma Thompson, Tom Hanks, Colin Farrell, Paul Giamatti, Jason Schwartzman, Bradley Whitford, Annie Rose Buckley, Ruth Wilson, B.J. Novak, Rachel Griffiths, Kathy Baker
  • Director:   John Lee Hancock
  • Producers: Alison Owen, Ian Collie, Philip Steuer
  • Executive Producers:  Paul Trijbits, Andrew Mason, Troy Lum, Christine Langan
  • Written by:  Kelly Marcel and Sue Smith

When Walt Disney’s daughters begged him to make a movie of their favorite book, P.L. Travers’ “Mary Poppins,” he made them a promise—one that he didn’t realize would take 20 years to keep. In his quest to obtain the rights, Walt comes up against a curmudgeonly, uncompromising writer who has absolutely no intention of letting her beloved magical nanny get mauled by the Hollywood machine. 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.

For those two short weeks in 1961, Walt Disney pulls out all the stops. Armed with imaginative storyboards and chirpy songs from the talented 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.

It is only when he reaches into his own childhood that Walt discovers the truth about the ghosts that haunt her, and together they set Mary Poppins free to ultimately make one of the most endearing films in cinematic history.

The Muppets for Thanksgiving instead of Shopping!

Thanksgiving is a time for families and fun, eating and watching football and this year, The Muppets!

Personally speaking, I’m not interested in getting up early or staying up late to shop for bargains – but there are so many who do that. Of course, if you know me, you know that I’m an online shopper so it’s Cyber Monday for me.

If you’re a parent, it’s hard to find good movies that you can take your kids to and as a family enjoy together. Well, this year, Disney has done it, they’ve brought together the cast of characters that we love “The Muppets” and put together some fun ways to fill the time before the movie opens on Thanksgiving.
