Disneyland to zap back to 1961 for taping of SAVING MR. BANKS in November...
"We've just received word that taping will be occurring at Disneyland on November 6 and 7 for the recently announced SAVING MR. BANKS feature film starring Tom Hanks and Emma Thompson. The biopic follows Walt Disney in his quest to convince author P.L. Travers to allow him to turn the beloved "Mary Poppins" books into a feature film."
I was excited to see this coming out! It will be awesome to see how Tom Hanks portrays Walt. - 3kings4120.4 #2727 10-2-12 10:12PMLike Reply
How cool would that be to see or be an extra on the set!!!! - madsdad1119.9 #73 10-2-12 10:13PMLike Reply
Dress like the 60's on Nov 6 or 7... Who knows what will happen?
"...As this is a feature film taping, guests should NOT expect to show up day-of to make it as an extra in the film, especially considering the time-period to be evoked in the film. In fact, casting is currently under way for extras being cast to feature hairstyles and looks reminiscent of the styles in 1961." - Tomorrowland65.3 #60 10-2-12 10:20PMLike Reply
We will be there then! I'm so excited to hear this! I was a bit disappointed that our plane leaves the day of the craft fair and now I have this to look forward too! - MamaRoo344.5 #421 10-2-12 11:22PMLike Reply
