FIRST LOOK: Disney Shares First Image From Live Action Pinocchio

The new live action Pinocchio film which stars Tom Hanks as Geppetto hits Disney+ in September and fans just got their first look at the film and it's star.

The photo came from the official Disney Twitter account along with the message:

"First Look! Check out Tom Hanks as Geppetto and our beloved Pinocchio, voiced by Benjamin Evan Ainsworth. #Pinocchio is coming to #DisneyPlus this September."

The new Pinocchio film is directed by Robert Zemeckis (Back To The Future, Forrest Gump, The Witches) and stars not only Tom Hanks but also Benjamin Evan Ainsworth as the voice of Pinocchio. It's very clear that this version of the film is leaning very heavily on the look and feel of the original animated Pinocchio film, whereas another version that hits Netflix this year will have a very different feel.

Academy Award Winning Director, Guillermo del Toro, is also working on a film about the character, Pinocchio. The Del Toro movie will be animated and stars John Turturro, Cate Blanchett, Ewan McGregor, Finn Wolfhard, Tilda Swinton, and many other huge Hollywood names.
