Many of you know how very much I love movies (and movie trailers). November and December are always the best months of the year, when it comes to movie releases.

Saving Mr. Banks is one of the movies I most look forward to the end of this year. Inspired by true events, Saving Mr. Banks is the extraordinary, untold story of how Disney’s classic Mary Poppins made it to the screen — and the testy relationship that the legendary Walt Disney had with author P.L. Travers that almost derailed it. The film stars two-time Academy Award®–winner Emma Thompson and fellow double Oscar®-winner Tom Hanks

I'm delighted to share with you the first official trailer for Saving Mr. Banks:


Saving Mr. Banks from Disney Pictures, rated PG-13, opens in limited theaters December 13, 2013 and opens wide on December 20, 2013.
