During the Walt Disney Companies Annual Shareholders meeting, Disney opened the presentation with a video montage of some of Disney’s biggest successes from across films, Tv, theme parks and much more.
Part of this presentation included just a second or two of the upcoming Disney+ Original film, “Pinocchio”, which is coming to the streaming service later this year.
Academy Award winner Robert Zemeckis directs this live action retelling of the beloved tale of a wooden puppet who embarks on a thrilling adventure to become a real boy.
Tom Hanks stars as Geppetto, the wood-carver who builds and treats Pinocchio (Benjamin Evan Ainsworth) as if he were his own son. 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.
Here’s some photos from this upcoming film:
The film is planned to be released on Disney+ in late 2022.
