In celebration of the second annual Disney+ Day, the company’s newest live-action remake Pinocchio, will make its debut on Thursday, Sept. 8!

The first Disney+ Day was held in 2021 and premiered footage of highly-anticipated productions like Moon Knight and Obi-Wan Kenobi. This year’s Disney+ Day takes place right before the D23 Expo on Sept. 9 to Sept. 11.

But Sept. 8 will see the beloved children’s Disney movie come to life in a CGI retelling of the story. The film was directed by Robert Zemeckis. He is known for being the lead behind the camera for all the Back to the Future films, as well as Who Framed Roger Rabbit. He’s also reuniting with actor Tom Hanks on this project as he directed Forrest Gump and Castaway.

With Hanks as the lead actor and Zemeckis as the lead behind-the-scenes, the film is in very good hands! The Disney live-actions have been hit or miss for me overall, but I’m very hopeful about Pinocchio! Here’s all we know about the upcoming movie.

Pinocchio release date

The musical fantasy is scheduled to be released on Disney+ on Sept. 8, 2022. It will not premiere in theaters so the only way to watch is through the streaming service.

Pinocchio premise

There’s no official synopsis for the movie yet. But we have an idea of what the live-action film will be about since it’s a remake. The computer-animated movie will retell the beloved story of the beloved 1940 Disney film of the same name.

Woodworker Gepetto wishes upon a star that the puppet he just finished working on, Pinocchio, could become a real boy. The Blue Fairy partially grants his wish, bringing the puppet to life. Jiminy Cricket serves as the little “boy’s” conscience. To become a real boy, he’ll have to learn to be selfless, brave, and true.

The 1940 movie was only Disney’s second animated feature film. The very first was Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.
