Daft Punk will be joined by none other than perennial favorite Stevie Wonder.

“Saving Mr. Banks” is a testament to the cathartic power of artistic expression. It’s also an appealing showcase for a wide array of talented actors and an opportunity for Disney to pay tribute to its rich and complex history.
