All-New Live-Action “Pinocchio” Will Premiere On Disney+ Day

Think magical, think Disney! Disney+ Day is returning on 8 September 2022.

In celebration of Disney+ Day, the streaming service will host special experiences for fans and subscribers. They will premiere new content from its marquee brands, including the return of the beloved Disney franchise in the all-new live-action “Pinocchio” on Disney+ Day, 8 September 2022.

When we say magical, we think of Pinocchio – a wooden puppet who dreams of becoming a real boy. The show stars Tom Hanks, Benjamin Evan Ainsworth, Cynthia Erivo, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Keegan-Michael Key, Lorraine Bracco and Luke Evans.

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. Also in the cast are Kyanne Lamaya as Fabiana (and her marionette Sabina), Giuseppe Battiston as Señor Stromboli and Lewin Lloyd as Lampwick.

Other than “Pinocchio,” Disney+ will premiere more Disney+ Day shows from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, and National Geographic.

Let’s start counting down to 8 September 2022!
