I didn’t even know this was happening until today!!
Did you know that PINOCCHIO is getting a live-action remake? AND even better, it is releasing soon as in a few weeks on Christmas Day!!
PINOCCHIO will be released theatrically on Christmas day as we hope to provide a welcoming escape for? families, a perfect holiday film for the whole family!
The film stars Oscar® winner Roberto Benigni (Life Is Beautiful) and Federico Ielapi as the titular wooden boy. Fun fact: Roberto played Pinocchio himself in the 2002 version and is now playing Gepetto.
The movie is shot in stunning Italian locations, Matteo Garrone’s rich world of mystery and wonder stars Academy Award® winning actor Roberto Benigni as Geppetto, the old woodcarver whose puppet creation, Pinocchio, magically comes to life with dreams of becoming a real boy.
Easily led astray, Pinocchio (nine-year-old Federico Ielapi) tumbles from one misadventure to another as he is tricked, kidnapped and chased by bandits through a wonderful world full of imaginative creatures – from the belly of a giant fish, to the Land Of Toys and the Field Of Miracles.
The new Pinocchio will only be shown in theaters on Christmas Day. You can check showtimes and tickets here.
