About this deal

While Pinocchio is basically forced to go to Pleasure Island by Honest John, in the original, the remake gives him the choice of whether he wants or does not want to go, only accepting to, like in the book, via peer pressure. Pinocchio is a 2019 fantasy film, co-written, directed, and co-produced by Matteo Garrone, based on the 1883 book The Adventures of Pinocchio by Italian author Carlo Collodi. [5] The film stars child actor Federico Ielapi as the title character, Roberto Benigni as Geppetto, [a] Gigi Proietti as Mangiafuoco, Rocco Papaleo [b] and Massimo Ceccherini as the Cat and the Fox, and Marine Vacth as the adult Fairy with Turquoise Hair. This was the final film featuring Proietti to be released before his death in November 2020.
