I couldn’t envision a more perfect Walt Disney than Mr. Tom Hanks. This looks brilliant. One of those beautifully enchanting movies that comes out right before Christmas and reminds you why it’s so important to hold onto the magic of childhood. Admittedly, although Julie Andrews is practically perfect in every way, Mary Poppins is not one of my favorite Disney movies. I have a feeling, however, that this movie will do for her what Finding Neverland did for Peter Pan (I cry every time) and I will fall head over heels.
