They should not change freequently.

To be fair: If they never changed, we'd still have that bratty, tobacco-spitting, animal-abusing Mickey Mouse I showcased in the GIFs.

A film that is bound to become one of my personal favorites, Saving Mr. Banks is a biographical drama film centered on the production of the 1964 Walt Disney Studios film, Mary Poppins. It's coming this December on the 13th.

It stars Tom Hanks as Walt Disney.

(And now, an excerpt from Wikipedia.)
"The film depicts author P. L. Travers [Emma Thompson] and her two-week briefing in Los Angeles as she is persuaded by filmmaker Walt Disney [TOM HANKS], in his attempts to obtain the screen rights to her novel."

Apparently, Tom Hanks took several visits to The Walt Disney Family Museum and interviewed some of Disney's relatives including his daughter Diane Disney Miller. All to prepare for the role of Walt Disney.

What are your thoughts on this, other people that go to this thread?

Hmm... Not sure. I'm no fan at all of Mary Poppins, but those "making of" movies always seem interesting, so I guess it'll be worth a Watch.

Generally speaking, I really, really, REALLY miss the good old hand drawn movies Disney used to make. I mean, what's this obsession with CGI and computer animation?? It's horrible if kids gonna grow up with no clue as to what The Lion King or Beauty and the Beast is. What a miserable childhood they'd get...

Absolutely. I think Tangled was a good enough compromise, after so long without anything.

I like the idea of this movie and the poster is cool.

@dumedum If that was supposed to imply that it might turn out like The Phantom Menace, let me remind you: Jake Lloyd was no Tom Hanks.

Actually, now that you've got me thinking about it, TPM would've been awesome if Tom Hanks was Anakin! XD

@DdFixen @DestinyMan Completely agree with you both. I already like Sofia The First, but it'd easily become 10x better if it wasn't CG. Which makes me all the more excited for Who Framed Roger Rabbit 2!

What didn't you like about it? (It's been years since I last watched it, so I don't remember all that much)

There were a lot of things, but this one takes the cake: The fact that they took Pocahontas, who was about 12 at the time (in the actual story) I believe, and made her into a gorgeous young adult complete with 360 turn glamour shots of her. Which was only made worse when they had her kiss John Smith (who was about thrice Pocahontas' age in the actual story as I recall).

Again: Yuck.

Didn't they release a new 2D Winnie the Pooh in theaters back in 2011? I don't think it did all that well, but I remember seeing commercials for it.

Then there was that Princess and the Frog that came out in 2009, I think.

I haven't seen either, though, and for the most part, I share your sentiments.

@DestinyMan I suppose you're right. Disney does stray from the source material a lot... except this time it was just disgusting. Sure, Aladdin was a boy in the original story, but he didn't have 360 turn glamour shots. And the icky "Twelve Into Twenty-Something" change isn't the only thing I disliked about the film. Overall: I didn't enjoy the film. Done.

Disney is a shadow of its former self. Everything people love about them (me included) is what they did in the past; and it seems its going to stay that way.

Nothing they've made lately has interested me at all, except Wreck-It Ralph. Before that it was Atlantis: The Lost Empire, which is the last 2D Disney film I was head-over-heels captivated by. Its kinda sad.
