Disney’s Pinocchio (2022) – Boy Story

This week on the podcast, we're reviewing Disney's live-action remake of Pinocchio, directed by Robert Zemeckis and starring Tom Hanks.

We’re getting three Pinocchio movies this year for some reason, so this week on the show we’re talking about the one from Robert Zemeckis. Now streaming on Disney+, Pinocchio is a live-action remake of the 1940 classic that gave the mouse house its theme song. But can we see the corporate strings on this, ahem, wooden straight-to-streaming rehash starring Tom Hanks, Cynthia Erivo, and Luke Evans, featuring the voice talents of Benjamin Evan Ainsworth, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Keegan-Michael Key? Anyway, #JusticeforFigaro.
