The live adaptation of the classic Disney “Pinocchio” signed Robert Zemeckis offers a new trailer. Unpublished images more centered on the puppet, which should recall childhood memories.
Pinocchio : Robert Zemeckis reunites with Tom Hanks
At the end of 2022, two great filmmakers of the imagination will each deliver their adaptation on the puppet created by Carlo Collodi. With Pinocchio, Guillermo del Toro will offer on Netflix in December a darker version of the story of the wooden puppet who dreams of becoming a real little boy.
A stop-motion animated film co-directed with Mark Gustafson which promises to be sublime and dark, and which brings together Ewan McGregor, Gregory Mann, Christoph Waltz, Cate Blanchett, Tilda Swinton and Ron Perlman in the voice cast.
For his part, Robert Zemeckis staged the live adaptation of the Disney classic released in 1946. A project that marks his reunion with Tom Hanks after Forrest Gump, Alone in the world and The Polar Express.
The actor lends his features to the Tuscan carpenter Geppetto, Pinocchio’s father. The first preview featured the character, along with Jiminy Cricket (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) and the Blue Fairy (Cynthia Erivo), to the tune of When we pray to the lucky star.
The wooden child is finally revealed
The new trailer focuses more on the young hero dubbed by Benjamin Evan Ainsworth as well as on his adventures. From his encounter with the cat and the fox to that with the frightening whale, passing through the confinement he undergoes when he joins Stromboli’s troupe, these unpublished images are obviously reminiscent of the original animated film. The puppet who must be courageous, honest and generous to become human also resembles in all respects that of the cartoon.
After the recent Welcome Marwen and holy witchesthe director of Back to the future once again mixes digital and live action for a show that should be grandiose and above all very faithful to the animated film. Pinocchio is to be discovered from September 8, 2022 on Disney+.
