Tom Hanks plays Walt Disney in "Saving Mr. Banks." Had Disney not succeeded in convincing P.L. Travers to let him make Mary Poppins, there would've been no Bert the chimney sweep role for Dick Van Dyke to play.

Tom Hanks stars as Disney and Emma Thompson as Travers in the new film, and both were on hand in Los Angeles to pose alongside cast members from the original movie.
