Disney’s – Saving Mr Banks
Travers Emma Thompson. The British Travers is taken aback by the brash, bold American Disney though eventually she agrees to the film but insists on editorial control that causes no ends of problems for Disney from the very beginning when she talks about no animation and no songs she also did not approve of the casting. Disney realizes Travers will not be easily convinced so goes on a campaign to do just that including a personalized tour of Disneyland.
He comes to understand what the story is about Mary Poppins, does not, of course, come to save the children, she comes to save Mr Banks and she comes to understand what Disney is about, unearthing painful memories of her childhood.
Saving Mr. Banks. Author P.L. Travers reflects on her childhood after reluctantly meeting with Walt Disney, who seeks to adapt her Mary Poppins books for the.
We know what happened when the unstoppable force of Walt Disney met an immovable object, Mary Poppins author P. Travers; the perennially popular film that resulted stands testament to the fact that she finally signed over the movie rights. But thanks to its two stars, a wealth of nuance and subtlety makes this a richer story than it first appears. While the trailer suggests a two-hander between Thompson and Tom Hanks, the reality is that this is her story and his is a smaller, supporting role.
Thompson is instantly magnetic, delivering hilariously cutting put-downs with such blithe disdain for everyone and everything that she never quite crosses the line into bitchiness. We meet her dearly loved father Colin Farrell , happily romping with his children even as he scandalises her mother — and much of the town — with his disregard for propriety and, it gradually emerges, heavy drinking. The young Travers Annie Rose Buckley understandably worships her dad as he spins fantastical stories and paints images of a magical world all around, but is not so young that she fails to realise that something is deeply wrong with him and soon with her mother Ruth Wilson too.
No-one plays beautiful and doomed better than Farrell, and he adds real pathos to dialogue that could have been flowery. He uses his immense likability to play the showman and television star that the studio head was at this point, but has the gravitas and depth to show that jolly old Uncle Walt could also be ruthless.
She was not the buttoned-up spinster that the film indicates but rather a progressive and at times transgressive figure. The film occasionally shows a woman very much to be pitied rather than scorned, where the real Travers would scorn pity. Thankfully she remains biting to the last. Travers was right to resist the addition of too much Disney magic, and that it retains an edge of real feeling is down chiefly to her efforts, in particular as regards Mr.

Her mother Ruth Wilson cracked under the strain, leading to a suicide attempt; and only the arrival of her stern Aunt Ellie Rachel Griffiths keeps the family from collapse. That he is an original creator is already obvious, even to Travers—but creator of what, and to what ends?

Also, that it’s important to find a way to heal from past emotional wounds. Travers is incredibly devoted to her fictional creation, Mary Poppins, and won’t permit Walt Disney to make a movie about the famed magical nanny unless it meets her exacting specifications. Despite Disney’s incredible charm, Travers refused to budge, not until she’s assured he won’t tinker too much with the character.

Saving Mr. Banks” is the ultra-Disneyfied version of the tale of Walt Disney convincing a hostile P.L. Travers to let him make a film.
Travers’ rich fantasy life propelled her to write stories and poems at an early age, and after a brief stint in the theater, she moved to London, England, to pursue a literary life, hobnobbing with Irish poets such as William Butler Yeats. The Mary Poppins tales sprang from Travers entertaining young visitors, combined with a love of mythology. The Disney film Mary Poppins made the notoriously private and prickly Travers immensely wealthy, but also unhappy.
Her father, Travers Goff, was an unsuccessful bank manager and heavy drinker who died when she was 7. Called Lyndon as a child, Travers moved with her mother and sisters to New South Wales after her father’s death, where they were supported by a great aunt the inspiration for her book Aunt Sass. Travers had a rich fantasy life and loved fairy tales and animals, often calling herself a hen.
Her precocious reading led her to undertake The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire , and her writing talents emerged during her teens, when she began publishing poems in Australian periodicals. Adopting the stage name Pamela popular at the time Lyndon Travers, she gained a modest reputation as a dancer and Shakespearean actress. Her wealthy relatives, however, did not approve; feeling that Australians lacked humor and lyricism, she left for London, England, to seek the literary life.
Having begun her journalism career in Australia, Travers was able to parlay her voyage into travel stories for homeland papers. Travers had a love of Irish mythology, perhaps stemming from her father’s stories when she was a child, so the friendship had a special significance.
