We're finally getting out first glimpse at what Disney has in mind for its live-action adaptation of Pinocchio starring Tom Hanks!
Robert Zemeckis directs the stunning take on the classic story and it looks good enough to win over some of the "no more remakes" crowd. If it was anyone other than Tom Hanks as Geppetto, the emotional charm factor (and overall magical feeling) simply wouldn't exist.
Oddly enough, we don't get a look at the titular character (not so much as a string) in the trailer. I think that was a serious missed opportunity that made the entire trailer feel like it was missing something, both on a basic and deeper level. Luckily, seeing a well-done CGI Jiminy Cricket filled some of that void.
Pinocchio will be a Disney+ Day Premiere on September 8th.
