Pinocchio 2022 is all Set to Release on 8th September 2022 on Disney+.
Pinocchio isn’t just popular with Disney the Oscar-winning song from the movie “When You Wish Upon a Star” has become a mascot for the company. To sum up, the live-action remake stays fairly true to the animated version, with a few major screenplay revisions from Zemeckis and Chris Weitz, including, to some extent, how the plot concludes.
The plot, dialogue, set and costume designs, and even framing make an effort to mimic the original, just like Disney’s live-action Beauty and the Beast from 2017.
Even while Pinocchio is longer, the story and the physical characteristics of the majority of the characters are essentially the same, and the pacing is a little more logical. Four original tunes by Alan Silvestri and Glen Ballard also help to brighten the mood.

In contrast to his horrifying performance in The Haunting of Bly Manor, Benjamin Evan Ainsworth’s Pinocchio has a bright, innocent optimism that is true to Dickie Jones’ original work.
Joseph Gordon-voice Levitt’s for Jiminy Cricket, who serves as “Pinocchio’s Conscience, Lord High Keeper of the Knowledge of Right and Wrong, Counselor in Moments of Temptation, and Guide Along With more chances to break the fourth wall than “The Straight and Narrow Path.”
This time, Disney has added adorable little cricket chirps each time Jiminy jumps, but they have also preserved classic scenes like Jiminy accidentally resting his palm on a wooden woman behind or warming his little cricket butt on an ember.
Fortunately, this new Pinocchio expands Geppetto’s backstory by explaining why this Italian wood carver creates a wooden boy in the first place, what he really wishes for upon a star, and precisely why he has a house full of fancy (Disney-themed) cuckoo clocks.
Hanks has worked with Zemeckis on numerous projects, including Forrest Gump, Cast Away, and The Polar Express. All of this creates room for Hanks to look for inspiration for the role, who is largely one-note, and he does it with his trademark twinkle in the eye, attempting mightily to convince us that “Pinocchio! Holy smoke, man!
A few of Geppetto’s more archaic habits, including smoking a pipe in bed and concealing a massive blunderbuss beneath one’s pillow, have been dropped from the new movie. The slapstick humor has also been toned down, particularly for the scenes in which Geppetto terrorizes his pets with his new puppet.
The plotline with puppeteer Fabiana (Kyanne Lamaya) and her marionette, Sabina (Jaquita Ta’Le), as well as a new character, Sofia the Seagull (voiced by the legendary Lorraine Bracco), provides Jiminy Cricket with someone to chat to besides the audience.
The moments with Fabiana are a charming touch that gives Pinocchio a different role model from Jiminy to acquire morals and confidence. She is a member of Stromboli’s (Giuseppe Battiston) Marionette Traveling Theatre troupe, which is notable because Stromboli is a problematic character who is linked to a derogatory stereotypical portrayal of Romani people.
Her representation of them is equally dubious in the original movie as it is in this one. Given that the filmmaker has made necessary corrections to other aspects of the movie, it’s perplexing why a greater effort wasn’t made to rectify this.
