The new live-action Pinocchio trailer is fantastic. No lies.


The first full trailer for director Robert Zemeckis’ Pinocchio live-action is fantastic. As usual, Tom Hanks fully transforms into his character, in this case Pinocchio’s creator, Gepetto. From Variety:

Based on the classic 1883 children’s book “The Adventures of Pinocchio” by Italian author Carlo Collodi, “Pinocchio” stars Benjamin Evan Ainsworth, who gives his voice to the living puppet. Pinocchio is the creation of Geppetto (Tom Hanks), a childless woodcarver, who wishes a star for Pinocchio to become a real boy. His wish is heard by a blue fairy (Cynthia Erivo), who visits his shop and brings the puppet to life. An overjoyed Geppetto raises him as his own son, but for Pinocchio to become a real boy instead of just a living puppet, he will have to embark on a journey of adulthood and learn to be selfless, brave and true.[…]

“Pinocchio” isn’t the only upcoming movie centered on the famous puppet. Earlier this year, Lionsgate Entertainment released “Pinocchio: A True Story,” an animated film starring Pauly Shore in the title role. Additionally, in December, Netflix is ​​set to release a stop-motion animated Pinocchio movie starring Gregory Mann, Ewan McGregor and David Bradley, with Guillermo del Toro and Mark Gustafson attached to direct.
