    Even if it's more about the author of Mary Poppins than Walt, it could still be great since she's being played by Emma Thompson. I've gone into movies concerned that that actors didn't look right for the part, but if the actor is excellent I forget this in a minute.

    I just hope they get across that Walt was a genius at the height of his powers (1964 World's Fair attractions in NY, and POTC, the HM & WDW all being planned, and Mary Poppins). And I hope it shows his effective working relationship with the great Sherman Bros., who were also at the height of their genius.

    Right now, no one, not even Hanks, the screenwriter, the director nor the producers know how well this movie will turn out. Editing in weak music, or editing in music too loudly, or even the addition of two unnecessary scenes could kill the entire picture. But if a lot of talented artists are at their best, it could win Best Picture, and millions more could come to admire my favorite capitalist, Walt Disney.

    P.S. I suggest they use variations of Disney music like "Feed the Birds" throughout the film.

    I guess I am wildly surprised that the first movie being done with Walt, isn't even about him and doesn't chronicle his life story. That is above all, what every single Disney fan wants to see on the big screen.

    If this is a huge hit there will be more interest in that. The climax of that one could be the opening of Disneyland.

    It's not easy to write an outstanding screenplay. If this story about conflict in the making of Mary Poppins was a visually interesting page turner with engaging characters and a good ending, then they were smart to make this now.

    Every single Disney fan? That would be a cult movie, not a blockbuster.

    Well, I guess it's fitting since Tom Hanks sort of looks like Walt Disney at the end of this Saturday Night Live skit

    It's very commonplace for large parts of backgrounds, even of scenes filmed live on location, to be seamlessly CGI'd and mixed with actual on-location sets and backgrounds. They even do it convincingly on television nowadays.

    I'd imagine they could easily change anything that doesn't look original, but actually being there gives them the foundation of realism to work with, as opposed to a total green screen job or building a set.

    I'm curious to hear what Hanks does with the voice.

    A CM let me know they are filming today by the Castle and Fantasyland probably until 5pm today. So Fantasyland is closed for much of today.
