A look at the Classic Disney Original Film, Pinocchio

It starts out exactly how I remember it….

The Well Known and Loved Jiminey Cricket

A cute little green cricket called Jiminey, dressed entirely like a vagabond. Living in between the relics of musical boxes, tiny dancing ballerina’s, cuckoo clocks, puppets, and all of the other wooden, and glass memorabilia that Gepetto collected and created over time. Like a tiny little village on the shelves – exactly how I remember it.

Gepetto looked and sounded exactly the way he did in the original Disney cartoon from 1940 . The first few scenes had me debating with myself whether or not they chose the right guy for the role, but after watching the first 15 minutes, I decided that they couldn’t have done better!!!

Tom Hanks absolutely SLAYS the role of the old wood shop owner, Geppetto. Although, there were a handful of times in the beginning that I thought, ‘ is he just mumbling in a botched Italian accent?’ – but it was because that part called for him to be mumbling- and the accent was pretty on point for a guy with an American Accent!!!

You may have recognized the larger than life voice behind the tiny vagabond cricket called Jimney. I knew it sounded familiar, but racked my brain throughout the entire movie before turning to Google for the answer!! It’s Joseph Gordon-Levitt in the role of a lifetime!!!

It wouldn’t be right for me to not give Pinocchio’s Fairy Godmother [ Blue Fairy] a HUUUGEE, BRAVOOO in this article!!!

Bravaaa Cynthia Erivo, Brava!!!
This could have been a picture of anyone in my living room- watching in complete awe.

WOW!!! Seemingly Effortless, she appears in Gepetto’s window and with every flutter and shake -an iridescent glow is left in the wake of her movement!! She is stunning not only in appearance, but also in sound. Her voice, it truly makes the song.

The “Street People” were excellent and excellently played. As I watched the film in complete concentration and awe, I imagined what an honor it must have been for all the actors and actresses to play in such a widely known and well loved family film!!

Who do you think felt more special, Tom Hanks, or Benjamin Evan Ainsworth?? Or one of the other characters I’ve mentioned?? Or is it one of the ones I have not listed?

I cannot wrap this up without giving credit to the ballerina puppet Sabina & her puppeteer Fabiana!!

What was my favorite part of the movie?? I’d have to say was probably Pinocchio’s Trip to Pleasure Island. Not to mention, Luke Evans really ranked highly in this one, as he played one hell of a coachman!!! The fresh little character “CandleWick” is played by a Young man named Lewin Lloyd – I think he lucked out with this one!! Great Acting Kid- Great Acting!!!!

” The way the story line of Pleasure Island crept up on us… captivating!!”, “BRILLIANT!!”

For the few who had never seen, or read the original Pinocchio before watching the 2022 remake, “PLOT TWIST!!!”

The mixture of animation and reality throughout this film was genius. It was put together so perfectly, that, a child, and maybe even a handful of adults, would not even notice the difference!!

I had completely forgotten about the Donkeys!!! WOW!

This Movie was SUCH A HIT in my house! What are your thoughts on this 2022 Take of Pinocchio?? Leave a comment sharing your input, thoughts & opinions!!
