Disney’s “Pinocchio” was originally announced back in 2015, with production wrapping in 2021. In the trailer, Erivo serves up her version of the classic tune “When You Wish Upon a Star.” The song was originally written by Leigh Harline and Ned Washington for Walt Disney’s 1940 animated film “Pinocchio”.

In the film, Hanks stars as the live-action version of Geppetto, who builds the Pinocchio puppet, voiced by Benjamin Evan Ainsworth. The puppet is brought to life by the Blue Fairy’s magic.

Zemeckis serves as the co-writer on “Pinocchio” alongside producer Chris Weitz. The film is produced by Depth of Field, ImageMovers, and Walt Disney Pictures.

The film’s premiere will coincide with the worldwide Disney+ Day celebration. The event will feature previews of the company’s upcoming lineup on Sept. 8 ahead of the D23 Expo fan event.
