Tom Hanks plays the legendary Walt Disney in the true story behind the making of the movie Mary Poppins. When Disney’s daughters begged him to make a movie of their favorite book, he didn’t realize it would take him 20 years to keep his promise. Armed with imaginative storyboards and chirpy songs, he has to win over the book’s author P.L. Travers (Thompson), who is adamant her work not be mauled in the movie-making machine.
