As soon as I heard about this movie being made, I realized that it was going to be a financial flop! Why did I think this? Well, 2 reasons:

1) The last two attempts to make a movie based on this radio series character from the 30’s were unsuccessful. And if they were unsuccessful in the years 1981 and 2003, I really didn’t see a 2013 film behaving any differently.

The 2013 version shall join his branded brethren.
The 2013 version would most assuredly join his branded brethren.

2) This film kept getting pushed back due to budget concerns and that’s almost never a good sign.

Nevertheless, Disney thought that they could make a profit with this film and even went so far as to secure their beliefs by casting one of their biggest stars, Johnny Depp, in the film. Yet, the film still flopped!

It seemed to be a film that would delight the heart of every Disney fanatic, the heart of every film historian, as well as the heart of every person who loved Mary Poppins. It would be the first theatrical film to feature an actor portraying Mr. Walt Disney himself. It was a film that would either become an instant classic or an instant flop!

Without further ado, let’s take a look at Saving Mr. Banks
