Saving Mr Banks : photos of the filming
November 09, 2012
Tom Hanks was in Disneyland on November 6th and 7th to shoot his next movie, Saving Mr Banks, in which he plays none other than Walt Disney himself. Emma Thompson and Paul Giamatti were also on set.
Part of the amusement park was closed off for the filming. The last time that Disneyland allowed a movie shoot was for the 1996 film, That Thing You Do! which also starred Tom Hanks. You can see some pictures of the filming in our gallery.
The first photo of Tom Hanks as Walt Disney (on the right) was revealed by actress Melissa Farley on her official Twitter account.
"Just freaking met Tom Hanks after taking this pic! He called me Minnie and was super nice! @ Disneyland Park."
Saving Mr Banks is the story of how Walt Disney convinced writer P.L. Travers to allow them to make the movie of her book Mary Poppins. The movie will open in the US on December 20, 2013. A UK release date has yet to be announced.
The cast also include Colin Farrell, Jason Schwartzman, Rachel Griffiths and Bradley Whitford. John Lee Hancock (The Blindside) is directing from a script by Sue Smith and Kelly Marcel.
