First Official Image of Hanks as Disney

If you're already looking to place your bets for Oscar season, this may not be a bad one to back.

Time magazine have released the first official image from the forthcoming Saving Mr.Banks, with Tom Hanks and Emma Thompson shaping up nicely as Mr. Mickey Mouse himself, Walt Disney, and Mary Poppins creator PL Travers respectively.

The movie will tell the story of the 14-year effort from Disney to persuade Travers to sell him the film rights to her book: you might be able to guess the ending.

Support roles are taken by Colin Farrell, Paul Glamatti and Jason Schwartzman, so it's a stellar cast all-round. With the Oscar-friendly release date of January next year, it could be worth getting in early with the bookies on this one; you'll make money as easily as saying supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.

Saving Mr Banks will be released in January 2014
