Tom Hanks and Emma Thompson star in 'Saving Mr. Banks' trailer

Saving Mr Banks

Most of us know the story of Mary Poppins — the magical nanny who had a voice of gold and a knack for made-up words. But does anyone know the story behind the magical film?

Saving Mr. Banks, starring Oscar winners Tom Hanks and Emma Thompson, aims to answer that question. Thompson plays P.L. Travers, the Australian-British writer who created the Mary Poppins series of novels. And Hanks? Well, he plays this random, little-known guy named Walt Disney who wants to adapt the novels. We all know what happened after.

Check out the trailer below:

So what did you think. Are you charmed?
