New Update Reveals Release Timeline for Disney+ Live-Action ‘Pinocchio’. Disney+ fans are gearing up for Disney+ Day tomorrow, November 12th and Disney’s Chief Financial Officer, Christine M. McCarthy has shared when the live-action ‘Pinocchio’ is expected to premiere on Disney+.
During the investors call Disney CFO Christine McCarthy shared that Pinocchio will be arriving to Disney+ in the fiscal fourth quarter of 2022, meaning sometime between July and September during the Q+A portion of the call.The upcoming Disney+ movie is a mix of live action and CGI. The main character is the memorable puppet of course. He will be voiced by Benjamin Evan Ainsworth since the wooden puppet character requires CGI.
The film’s feature stars also include Tom Hanks (Geppetto), Cynthia Erivo (Blue Fairy), Joseph Gordon-Levitt (Jiminy Cricket), Keegan-Michael Key (Honest John) and Luke Evans (The Coachman). The movie will be introducing new characters as well, such as Lorraine Bracco playing Sofia the Seagull.
A synopsis of the film has yet to be shared by Disney. But we expect the main plot points to hold up to the test of time, with some modern updates sprinkled throughout the film. Pinocchio will premiere exclusively on Disney+ in 2022. Be sure to check back here at Chip and Company for updates and all things Disney!
