I have to admit, it has been a long time since I have had the chance to watch the Disney classic, Pinocchio. It is the movie of my childhood, one put away in a safe space in the corner of my mind. Remembered fondly from time to time and definitely not forgotten. In fact, some of my favourite characters come from Pinocchio, like Jiminy Cricket and Figaro, the pet cat of Geppetto and Pinocchio.( I have a soft spot for kitty cats. ♥) But, it has not been a movie we have watched often. Thankfully, that is about to change. 🙂
“Pinocchio” is considered one of the greatest animated films ever made, with two Academy Awards® — for best original score and best original song “When You Wish Upon a Star” – and a rare 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Now, it will delight a whole new generation of dreamers with its masterful animation, unforgettable characters and award-winning music. The Walt Disney Signature Collection release includes hours of classic bonus material and exclusive features. “Pinocchio” tells the tale of wood-carver Geppetto’s beloved puppet who embarks on a thrilling quest – with faithful friend Jiminy Cricket – that tests his bravery, loyalty and honesty, all virtues he must learn to fulfill his heart’s desire: to become a real boy.”
