Some things are worth the wait, and that’s definitely the case with new Disney films that fans have been anticipating for months (and sometimes years). But fans are growing more and more excited about the upcoming release of Disney’s newest live-action remake, which will make its way to the Disney+ streaming platform in September.
To make the wait a bit more palatable, Disney+ has just released the first trailer for its soon-to-be-released take-two of Disney’s 1940 animated classic Pinocchio.
Disney’s live-action Pinocchio is based on the 1883 classic children’s story by Italian author Carlo Collodi, titled, The Adventures of Pinocchio, and features the voice talents of Benjamin Evan Ainsworth as Pinocchio, as well as the talents of actor Tom Hanks as the childless woodcarver, Gepetto, and Cynthia Erivo as the Blue Fairy.
In the film, Gepetto wishes on a star for his puppet, Pinocchio, to become a real boy, and that wish is heard by the Blue Fairy who visits Gepetto’s woodcarving shop and brings the puppet to life.Gepetto is thrilled and dedicated to raising the little boy as his own child. But before Pinocchio can fully become a real boy–and not just a wooden puppet who’s also alive–he must first embark on a journey that teaches him selflessness, bravery, and being true to himself and others.
The trailer gives fans an even longer look at the CGI version of Pinocchio himself, as well as Jiminy Cricket, Cleo the fish, and Figaro, Gepetto’s black and white cat.
