As I am going through parenthood, I make promises to my children. Promises of varying degrees, like playing their favorite board game before bedtime and to taking them to see the ocean, with a beach. There must be a beach. When I make a promise to my kiddos, I intend to keep it, no matter how tired I am, or how broke it makes me.
The promise Walt Disney made to his daughters, that he would turn their favorite book into a movie, became a promise that took him 20 years to fulfill. Making the promise that day, I'm sure he had no idea the hurdles he would encounter, or the life lessons he would learn as he set out to bring "Mary Poppins" to life.
I can't wait for "Saving Mr. Banks" to hit theaters in December 2013! Mary Poppins is a favorite of mine and I am eager to see the story of how it came to be on the big screen. I am also looking forward to seeing a bit more into the life of Walt Disney as a person, instead of a "brand".
