Tom Hanks Looks Unrecognizable As Geppetto In New “Pinocchio” Trailer: Watch • HHL



From the sounds of things, Disney+ is due to receive a slate of seriously awesome content across its catalogue in the coming months. Earlier today (May 31) the platform unveiled the teaser trailer for the long-awaited live-action Pinocchio movie, starring Tom Hanks as Geppetto.

If you haven’t seen the animated classic in some time, let us remind you that Hanks’ character works as a woodcarver, and eventually builds himself a little boy (played by Benjamin Evan Ainsworth) out of wood, who he magically wishes to life in order to fulfill his lifelong dream of becoming a father.

Other cast members include Cynthia Erivo as the Blue Fairy, Keegan-Michael Key as Honest John, Lorraine Bracco as Sofia the Seagull, Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Jiminy Cricket, and Luke Evans as the Coachman.

As Complex notes, the premiere date for Pinocchio on Disney+ is on September 8th – also falling right in line with the launch of the worldwide Disney+ Day celebration, which will be followed by the D23 Expo in Anaheim, California the next month.

Hanks fans will be visiting theatres frequently over the coming months. The 65-year-old will appear alongside Austin Butler in Baz Luhrmann’s Elvis biopic as the late entertainer’s manager, Colonel Tom Parker, as well as in A Man Called Otto from World War Z director, Mark Foster.
