Pinocchio Movie Cast & Characters:

  • Tom Hanks as Geppetto, an Italian woodcarver and toymaker who creates Pinocchio out of grief for the death of his young son.
  • Benjamin Evan Ainsworth as Pinocchio, a living wooden puppet carved by Geppetto, and brought to life by the Blue Fairy. He seeks to learn about right and wrong so that he can become a real boy.
  • Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Jiminy Cricket, an anthropomorphic cricket who acts as Pinocchio’s “conscience” and the partial narrator of the story.
  • Keegan-Michael Key as Honest John, an anthropomorphic red fox con artist who convinces Pinocchio to go to Stromboli’s puppet show. He is often accompanied by Gideon, his mute, bumbling, anthropomorphic cat sidekick who serves as the film’s comic relief.
  • Lorraine Bracco as Sofia, a seagull that Geppetto knows who befriends Jiminy.
  • Cynthia Erivo The Blue Fairy is a magical fairy who brings Pinocchio to life and promises to turn him into a real boy if he proves himself brave, truthful, and selfless.

  • Giuseppe Battiston as Stromboli, a puppet master who intends to force Pinocchio to perform onstage to make money. He speaks with an Italian accent and curses gibberish when he gets angry.
  • Kyanne Lamaya as Fabiana, a puppeteer who works for Stromboli. She used to be a ballerina until a leg injury ended her dancing career, causing her to wear a leg brace as she worked to regain her ballet skills.
  • Jaquita Ta’le as Sabina, Fabiana’s marionette.
  • Angus Wright as Signore Rizzi, an Italian gentleman who wants to purchase one of Geppetto’s clocks.
  • Sheila Atim as Signora Vitelli, an Italian woman whose job is to escort children to school.
  • Lewin Lloyd as Lampwick, an irresponsible boy whom Pinocchio befriends on his way to Pleasure Island.
  • Jamie Demetriou as the headmaster who kicks Pinocchio out of his school for being a puppet.

About Pinocchio Movie:

Pinocchio is an American musical fantasy film directed by Robert Zemeckis from a screenplay by Zemeckis and Chris Weitz. Produced by Walt Disney Pictures.

It is a live-action remake of Walt Disney’s 1940 animated feature film of the same name, which is itself based on the 1883 Italian book The Adventures of Pinocchio by Carlo Collodi.

A live-action remake of Pinocchio (1940) was first pitched to Disney by Jim Henson in 1985, but Disney turned it down.

Principal photography began on March 17, 2021, in Cardington Film Studios, England, under the working title Mahogany. Filming was completed in April 2021.

Pinocchio was released on September 8, 2022, by Disney+, as part of Disney+ Day.

The film received generally negative reviews from critics, who found it unnecessary and lacking the charm of the 1940 film, and criticized the writing and deviations, as well as the lack of improvement over previous adaptations, although the visuals, musical score, and some of the actors’ performances received praise.

Pinocchio received six Golden Raspberry Award nominations, including Worst Picture and Worst Actor for Hanks, and won for Worst Prequel, Remake, Rip-off or Sequel.

It is the first Disney remake to receive a Razzie nomination for Worst Picture.
