“A woodcarver named Geppetto (Tom Hanks) experiences a miraculous event as his wooden puppet embarks on a thrilling adventure to become a real boy.”
The ‘Forest Gump’ director has penned the CGI-laden script for his musical adaptation.
Pinocchio is set to release on Disney+ Day, leading to the D23 Expo in Anaheim CA.
The teaser trailer builds on a soothing melodramatic mood, with Gepetto’s wall full of clocks and his dreamy wish for Pinocchio to come alive. The following scenes include Jiminy Cricket getting attacked by a seagull and a nail-biting ship adventure.
Pinocchio sets out on an adventure that introduces him to a wide range of eclectic characters, good and bad. He faces highs and lows, all in the hopes of becoming a real boy.
