Saving Mr. Banks movie billboards...

Saving Mr. Banks is the tale of how Walt Disney brought P. L. Travers infamous Mary Poppins character to the big screen and delves into the past of the Australian-born British writer to see where her inspiration came from.

Pamela Lyndon Travers wasn't at first enamoured with the thought of Disneyfying her magical flying nanny and this film explores how Walt Disney convinced her to allow the 1964 musical movie, starring Julie Andrews and Dick Van Dyke, to be adapted by his Hollywood studio.

The film's name takes its title from the father of the children Mary Poppins comes to help and touches upon her difficult childhood with her own father. However without any prior knowledge of the movie you'd never guess what this ad creative featuring Tom Hanks and Emma Thompson was about. Daily Billboard preferred the teaser creative which featured the two actors playing Walt Disney and P. L. Travers casting shadows of their respective creations, Mickey Mouse and Mary Poppins.

This Disney billboard was spotted along Melrose Avenue on November 27, 2013 and the film opens in select theatres in the U.S. today and nationwide from December 20, 2013.

UPDATED: Here's a giant-sized billboard for the Disney movie snapped along L.A.'s Sunset Plaza on December 22, 2013. In this creative you can see Mickey Mouse more clearly in the background behind Walt (Tom Hanks) and there's a tagline 'Where her book ended. The real story began.' which gives the movie a bit more context.

In addition here's a larger landscape billboard for Saving Mr. Banks spotted along 3rd Street the same day.

Let's wait and see if Emma Thompson can win the Golden Globe for her performance as P. L. Travers and whether any more accolades are on the horizon.
