Celebrate the Premiere of 'Saving Mr. Banks' at Disney Parks Next Week
The real star of Saving Mr. Banks is actually Disneyland.
The modern day park was transformed back to 1961 for the film which follows Walt Disney (Tom Hanks) on his quest to convince Mary Poppins author P.L. Travers (Emma Thompson) that she should let him turn her beloved book into a movie.
Through costumes, exact replica poster art, balloons, and the famous retro Floral Mickey that once greeted visitors, Disneyland was brought back to its early days just for the film.
To celebrate Disney Parks then and now, a limited edition Saving Mr. Banks poster and the Mary Poppins 50th anniversary edition Blu-ray will be available at Disney California Adventure park near Disney Animation in Hollywood Land and the United Kingdom Pavilion at Epcot next week.
Also, from December 16-22, Disney fans can take a photo with Mary Poppins and Bert at the same locations.
Saving Mr. Banks opens in theaters on Dec. 20. Find out more about Disney vacation specials at disneyland.disney.go.com.
