This week, as part of Disney’s celebrations for Disney+ day, Academy Award-winner Robert Zemeckis (Forrest Gump, Back to the Future, Cast Away) brings his vision of Pinocchio to Disney+ on Thursday, September 8.
Based on the 1883 Italian children’s book The Adventures of Pinocchio by Carlo Collodi, a whole new generation can watch the story of the real boy come to life in a whole new light. This new version mixes the live-action talents of Tom Hanks and Cynthia Erivo with eye-catching CGI.
The new clip from Pinocchio offers a look at how Pinocchio and his guide Jiminy Cricket will be realized in live action. Trapped and frightened, Pinocchio finds himself in a cage. The clip brings to life one of the darker moments of the tale, as Pinocchio is kidnapped by The Coachman.
Pinocchio is scheduled to be released on Disney+ on September 8, 2022.
