Walt Disney Studios is taking all their classics out of the vault and turning them into live action movies.   Along with the recent release of Cinderella and the announcement of many others, including Mulan, Winnie the Pooh, The Jungle Book, and Beauty and the Beast to name a few, now comes the story of our favorite wooden puppet that turns into a real boy!

Peter Hedges is taking the classic we are all familiar with and like the other live action movies, putting a bit of a twist into the story or rather focusing on a different part of the story – the relationship between Pinocchio and his father.

How will Disney portray Monstruo as a real live action character?  Or turn little boys into donkeys?  What about Pleasure Island?  And of course, Jiminy Cricket needs to be front and center.   Whether Walt Disney Studios uses real or CGI animals, it will be something still to be determined as with the other announcements, little is known except that Pinocchio and his band of fellow characters are coming our way!

As the, Entertaiment Writer and Disney Addict, I will be following all the news about these upcoming live action movies, till then, see you at Disneyland.
