Robert Zemeckis and Tom Hanks (THE POLAR EXPRESS) reunite for a live-action version of Disney's PINOCCHIO. Pinocchio is recreated in the likeness of the classic 1940 Disney version. The new trailer certainly tugs at your heartstrings much like the original.
Tom Hanks stars as Gepetto in the retelling of the wooden puppet adventures to become a real boy. Joseph Gordon-Levitt is Jiminy Cricket, who serves as Pinocchio’s guide as well as his "conscience"; Academy Award® nominee Cynthia Erivo is the Blue Fairy; Keegan-Michael Key is "Honest" John; Academy Award® nominee Lorraine Bracco is Sofia the Seagull, a new character, and Luke Evans is The Coachman. Also in the cast are Kyanne Lamaya as Fabiana and Jaquita Ta’Le as her marionette Sabina, Giuseppe Battiston as Stromboli and Lewin Lloyd as Lampwick.
In addition to beloved songs from the original animated classic, including “When You Wish Upon a Star” performed by Cynthia Erivo, the film features new original songs composed by Academy Award® nominees Alan Silvestri and Glen Ballard (“The Polar Express”). The soundtrack from Walt Disney Records will be available on Sept. 8 and is available for Pre-Save/Pre-Add https://presave.umusic.com/pinocchio-presave
The Disney+ movie premieres September 8.
