Catch the new live-action Pinocchio on Disney+ next year.
As part of its string of Disney+ Day announcements, the streaming service announced more details about an upcoming movie set to be released next fall: a live-action version of Pinocchio.
The upcoming Pinocchio movie will be a live-action animated musical extravaganza based on the original 1940 animated movie. The plot follows the original movie but brings the animation and special effects into the 21st century.
Geppetto is a childless woodworker who longs for a boy of his own. One night, Geppetto wishes upon a star for his marionette, Pinocchio, to become a real child. Luckily for him, the Blue Fairy visits his workshop while Geppetto sleeps and brings Pinocchio to life with one caveat: He will remain a wooden puppet until he can prove that he is truthful, brave, and unselfish. Then, and only then, will he become a real boy and make Geppetto’s wish come true.
Can Pinocchio prove himself worthy of mortal life? You’ll have to watch to find out.
