Mary Poppins continues to stay in people's hearts since its 1964 release.

Now, Disney is dusting of Ms. Poppins for a new flick chronicling how Walt Disney got the rights to the book.

The new film, Saving Mr. Banks, will show how close Mary Poppins' author, Aussie P.L. Travers, was to her prized book.

So who are the megastars slated to play Disney and Travers?

None other than Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep!

While nothing is finalized, the two actors are rumored to be in talks for the roles. Disney has been working on the film for quite awhile and it would love to have some star power attached to the tale.

Mary Poppins was loved by viewers but Travers HATED the animation parts, and refused to sell her works to Disney from then on.

Are U excited to see how Mary Poppins began?! We are!

    ohh nooo not another remake!!! I love mary poppins and julie andrews soooo much I don't want it to be ruines!!!!! meryl can sing but it would be better if they hire a better and a little younger singer, hanks would make a great bert but he is too old there has never been an old mary and an old bert NEVER!

    if they add songs from the stage production it would be nice, more music less talking

    Okay, I am a huge Meryl Streep fan, but no WAY should there ever be a remake of this movie. It is a timeless classic and no one can ever top Julie Andrews performance in it. No thanks.
