The story of Pinocchio is probably one we are all familiar with, whether we have read the original fairytale story or watched the Disney classic in 1940. However, in recent years, Disney has been creating mediocre remakes and live-action versions of some of their iconic stories with little to no creativity or originality to them. Instead, most of the films feel very cheap and lackluster. Even stranger is the current wave of “Pinocchio” remakes from numerous movie studios. With the new Disney live-action film, Pinocchio (2022), starring Tom Hanks, and Pinocchio: A True Story (2021), another animated film. Both of these films probably ruined the reputation that most older generations have known the story of Pinocchio to be.
