The highly-anticipated live-action Pinocchio film is slated to hit Disney+ in early September.
Gearing up for the beloved classic to come to live in the all-new live-action, Disney has released an extended two-minute trailer to introduce Tom Hanks titular role as the wooden boy’s father and creator, Geppetto. In the trailer, fans get a chance to see Geppetto and Pinocchio come together. Cynthia Erivo plays The Blue Fairy who grants Pinocchio’s wish, bringing him to life. Joseph Gordon-Levitt is Jiminy Cricket and attempts to guide the wooden boy as he faces a life of adventure and temptations.
The trailer is backdropped by the original track “When You Wish Upon a Star” from the 1940 animated film. The trailer also revealed Luke Evans as the Coachman as the main non-CGI antagonist. Disney’s Pinocchio arrives a few months before Netflix’s Guillermo del Toro version.
Pinocchio arrives on Disney+ on September 8.
In other entertainment news, The Batman 2 script is reportedly in the works with Matt Reeves.
