The struggle between Walt Disney (Tom Hanks) and PL Travers (Emma Thompson) to bring Mary Poppins to the screen certainly looks as if it could make for some interesting back and forth. One concern I do have is how carefully director John Lee Hancock had to tread in making this film – dealing with the behind the scenes machinations of a beloved film is a tricky balancing act – and what kind of impact this could have had on the story.

We’ll find out when the film is released on American screens on the 13th of December and in the UK on the 17th of January 2014.
