We learned almost two years ago that Tom Hanks would star as Geppetto in a Disney live-action version of Pinocchio with Robert Zemeckis directing. Hanks and Zemeckis have previously worked together on Forrest Gump, Cast Away, and The Polar Express. Now we have the first look at the new live-action adaptation of Pinocchio. Disney+ released an image from the new movie showing Tom Hanks as Geppetto.
Other cast members include Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Jiminy Cricket, Cynthia Erivo as the Blue Fairy, Keegan-Michael Key as “Honest” John, Lorraine Bracco as Sofia the Seagull, and Luke Evans as The Coachman.
The movie premieres on Disney+ in September.
