When Walt Disney’s daughters begged him to make a movie of their favorite book, P.L. Travers’ “Mary Poppins,” he made them a promise – one that takes 20 years to keep. In his quest to obtain the rights, Walt comes up against an uncompromising writer who has absolutely no intention of letting her story get mauled by the Hollywood machine. But, as the books stop selling; Travers reluctantly agrees to go to Los Angeles to hear Disney’s plans. For those two short weeks in 1961, Walt Disney launches an all-out onslaught on P.L. Travers, but the prickly author doesn’t budge. It is only when he reaches into his own childhood that Walt discovers the truth about the ghosts that haunt her, and together they set Mary Poppins free to ultimately make one of the most endearing films in cinematic history.
