PINOCCHIO (2022) movie review

Disney's live adaptation of the 1940 classic Pinocchio still wins hearts and teaches a great lesson of love, bravery, honesty, selflessness. This new take on the living puppet justifies some of the important elements that we may have missed or forgotten in the animated version.
Starting off with Jiminy Cricket (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) coming into Geppetto's home as a homeless insect and witnessed how the puppeteer created and named the wooden art before it was given life by a heartfelt wish. We can sense that Geppetto (Tom Hanks) lost his only son and his coping mechanism is creating Pinocchio. There are also lots of clocks in his home and he says that his wife loves all his creations. There might have been unfortunate things that happened to his wife and he kept his senses straight by keeping busy.

The 2022 version has many noticeable differences from the older animation. When Pinocchio joined the Stromboli puppet show, meeting a fellow marionette, getting into Pleasure Island, and when he saved his father from a giant sea monster, Robert Zemeckis' version deliberately put more magic for everyone who will watch it.

Pinocchio is now streaming on Disney+.
