Pinocchio on Disney+ Day

Disney has released an official trailer for a live-action adaptation of Pinnochio directed by Robert Zemeckis (Who Framed Roger Rabbit) coming to Disney+.

Pinocchio, starring Tom Hanks (Saving Private Ryan) as Geppetto, looks incredible. I'm surprised it's not on limited release in theatres!

I first became aware of Walt Disney's celebrated animated adaptation during Steven Spielberg's magnum opus Close Encounters of the Third Kind - When You Wish Upon A Star is interpolated into John Williams' soundtrack among other references.

Shortly after that, I saw the classic Disney animation at Christmas. The tale of a wooden puppet, brought magically to life one night, facing travails with found family, deeply resonated in the wake of life-changing childhood trauma.

Pinocchio premieres exclusively on 8th September on Disney+ on Disney+ Day.
