Disney+ has released the first official trailer for its new live-action remake of Pinocchio in which actor Tom Hanks plays Geppetto.

 

It’s been more than 80 years since ‘Pinocchio’, the 1940 film that became the first animated film to win two Oscars: Best Song and Best Original Score. In 2020 a new version of the classic story ‘Pinocchio’ directed by Mateo Garrone and starring Roberto Benigni as Geppetto was released, and this year Netflix will release an adaptation directed by Guillermo Del Toro.

The ‘Pinocchio‘ remake will be in stop motion set in 1930s Italy and will contain a political message. This version will feature the voices of Ewan McGregor (Jiminy Cricket), David Bradley (Geppetto) and newcomer Gregory Mann (Pinocchio). Also starring are Finn Wolfhard, Cate Blanchett, John Turturro, Ron Perlman, Tim Blake Nelson, Burn Gorman, Christoph Waltz and Tilda Swinton.

Pinocchio will premiere on Disney+ on 8 September. Don’t miss it.
