The one and only Tom Hanks is heading back to the House of Mouse. We’ve known for sometime about Hanks’ involvement in one of two “Pinocchio” films. This one is yet-another Disney revisits a classic animated tale for an updated ‘live-action’ version. (The other is Guillermo del Toro‘s stop-motion animated version for Netflix.)
This morning, Disney released an official teaser trailer for their version. Robert Zemeckis directs, from a script he co-wrote with Chris Weitz.
Benjamin Evan Ainsworth voices Pinocchio. The film also stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Jiminy Cricket, Cynthia Erivo as the Blue Fairy, Lorraine Bracco as Sofia the Seagull, Luke Evans as The Coachman, Keegan-Michael Key as Honest John, Giuseppe Battiston as Señor Stromboli, and Lewin Lloyd as Lampwick.
“Pinocchio“will hit Disney+ on September 8th, 2022.
