Plot 

The plot of Pinocchio is something that we all know. We have heard the story of Pinocchio now and then. The story revolves around Pinocchio. He tells the story of Geppetto, who is a kind-hearted woodcarver. He makes a wooden puppet, a boy to be precise. Alright! We are talking about Pinocchio here. He carved Pinocchio from wood, and subsequently, he is brought to life by the Blue Fairy. Pinocchio needs to be honest, as whenever he lies, his nose will grow. He further strives to become a real movie. The plot of the live-action Pinocchio is something that we have always enjoyed as a child, and now, we will get an opportunity to enjoy it again. 

The movie’s development began in 2015 when Walt Disney Pictures announced its intention to adapt Pinnochio. However, since then, many developments have taken place. It took nearly four years to decide on the director and the screenwriter for the movie. The casts of the film were selected in 2018, and finally, in January 2021, we could get hold of the confirmed casts. 

Once the cast was decided, there was no looking back for live-action Pinocchio. The movie’s filming soon began on March 17, 2021, in Cardington Film Studios. It took three months to complete the filming of the movie. The speculated release date of the movie was announced last year in November. However, a confirmed release date was not disclosed, but now we have a confirmed release date, and that is on September 8.
