Take us to Disneyland. NOW!

Disney has just released the first still from their upcoming Walt Disney biopic, Saving Mr. Banks! And we have to admit, Tom Hanks and Emma Thompson have been totes transformed!!

Ch-ch-check it out (above)! The pic shows Walt and P.L. Travers — the legendary author of Mary Poppins — strolling Disneyland’s Main Street U.S.A. in 1961.

On playing the role, Emma revealed:

“She was a woman of quite eye-watering complexity and contradiction… Often I play people who are controlled by some very clear guiding moral principles. Like Margaret Schlegel [in Howards End], guided by the early principles of feminism and equal rights, and Elinor Dashwood [in Sense and Sensibility], guided by the principles of decency and honor.”

She added:

“There are very clear moral prisms these women pour life through, and I understand that very well. And [Travers] was not like that at all. She was far more chaotic and confused and morally various.”

That said, we simply cannot wait for the film's December 20th release!

AH-MAZING!

    Walt Disney was a racist, an antisemite, and a homophobe. There is no reason to glorify him or any movie about him and I am stunned that, as a prominent homosexual rights advocate, you would give this movie about a homophobic slimeball any mention on your website. Shame on you.

    Re: GhettoMomma
    I'm sure they'll definitely take heed from a person by the alias "GhettoMomma".

    @GhettoMomma, though it doesn't excuse his views on the world, he lived in a time when a large majority of the population had the same beliefs he did, it's sad and cruel, but he was one of millions that lived in an age when that sort of hatred and discrimination was the popular opinion.

    Re: GhettoMomma – What is your proof concerning these allegations? Do you know ANYONE who had either a personal or working relationship with Walt? I do. I will wait for you to produce your evidence, before I call an idiot.
