SAVING MR BANKS SPARKLES ON DVD

Mary Poppins was the ‘Harry Potter’ of the sixties.  She was, and remains the no-nonsense-nanny we all loved and wanted. Complete with songs, games and spoons full of sugar, Mary Poppins and her dazzling antics continue to enthral kids of all ages with every book read, or movie watched. But where did the story for Mary Poppins come from and what lengths did Walt Disney take to make it a movie? We bet you don’t know!

 

 

Saving Mr Banks is the most gorgeous movie I’ve seen all year. StarringTom Hanks asWalt Disney, the movie takes the viewer on a journey, behind the scenes of what really went on during the making of Mary Poppins. We’re talking ground level here. No flying nannies, and special effects. Instead, most of the movie takes place at Walt Disney Studio’s in the creative room, with the legendary Sherman Brothers, where a lot of the magic happens first. So why did it take Walt Disney 20 years to convince the bull headed author and not very pleasant P L Travers, played to perfection byEmma Thompson, to allow him to make this movie? One answer. Her stubbornness. P L Travers and her impertinent personality have no where to run in this film. I adored Emma Thompson’s portrayal of her. Cynical, unamused and down right rude. There’s a reason she is the way she is though, and throughout the movie you’re taken back and forth between her tragic childhood and present day. She becomes relatable and human, and you feel for her. 

 

This is the perfect movie to watch. You can sing along to all the songs you know and love, all the while learning the backstory of how this movie came to be and why. You’ll love Mary Poppins more than ever, and you’ll appreciate the truth that she stands for.  Its time to make memories guys and girls so give this DVD a try, and then pop in the Mary Poppins one and watch it with your kids, or grandkids. We’re ever so glad that Walt Disney never gave up supercalafragalisticexpialadoshus!
