This picture of a portrait is the first look at Tom Hanks in character as Walt Disney in the upcoming December movie ‘Saving Mr. Banks’. The film, which will be released December 20, 2013, tells the story of Disney’s 14-year effort to convince Mary Poppins author P.L. Travers to turn over the rights to her book. Emma Thompson plays Travers, and she’s been spotted by photographers, too.
You’re looking at the earliest known drawings of Mickey Mouse, cir. 1928, by Mickey Mouse co-creator Ub Iwerks. You’ll note that even though the face changed, Disney and Iwerks knew from the very beginning that Mickey’s iconic circular ears would pretty much always stay in the same place on his head, no matter what he was doing.
