For anyone who has ever wished upon a star.
Lonely toymaker Geppetto has his wishes answered when the Blue Fairy arrives to bring his wooden puppet Pinocchio to life. Before becoming a real boy, however, Pinocchio must prove he's worthy as he sets off on an adventure with his whistling sidekick and conscience, Jiminy Cricket. From Stromboli's circus to Pleasure Island, Pinocchio is tested by many temptations, but slowly learns how to navigate right from wrong. With a few mishaps along the way, Geppetto's "little woodenhead" finally gets it right, proving that when you wish upon a star dreams really can come true!
Not gonna lie: some pretty fucked up shit happens in this movie.
Given that I consider myself a big fan of animation (of all kinds), it is kind of shameful to say I haven't watched most of the Disney classics. Fortunately, I am going to try to fix that soon.
Based on Carlo Collodi's magical tale, Pinocchio tells the story of a puppet who receives the gift of life. Taking into account that I'm more related to the most recent works of the mass media corporation, I am tempted to say that this might be one of Disney's best animations to date. Comparing the animations of then and now, it's easy to see what's missing in the most recent works of the Company: detail, originality and heart.
Pinocchio is a film that…
Film #3 of Project 40
”A boy who won't be good might just as well be made of wood.”
Among all the various live action and animation adaptations of the everlasting story of the wooden puppet who wants to be a boy this 1940 Disney production may be the closest in heart and tone to the original story. In this lively and utterly enchanting classic Disney animation comedy, adventure, melodrama and tragedy come together to create a pure, poetic and timeless fairytale. On a visual level Pinocchio is a spectacular festival of exquisite colors and simple yet stunningly impressive drawings that create a solid foundation for the story and its one-dimensional – but at the same time deep – characters.…
Review In A Nutshell:
This film is the reason why Disney is one of the best animated studios in the world. Pinocchio is a film that finds appeal in everyone, from parent to child; a touch that Disney seems to have lost in recent years. I mainly grew up on the Disney Renaissance, seeing the films of the golden age only when first introduced, and since then my love for it has yet to grow. The Disney Renaissance was a time where drama was at the forefront in their storytelling, a message may be present, but it is locked away deep enough that it rarely ever feels apparent. Gone…
Can we please talk about how this is basically all Jiminy Cricket’s fault? I mean, good call on that Blue Fairy for giving the role of Pinocchio’s conscience to the first thing available, without any background checks, without any inquiries about Jiminy’s experience and motivation. But, once bestowed with the task of guiding naïve freshling Pinocchio, Jiminy is completely useless. He’s much more concerned with being a perv, hitting on everything remotely female including some of Gepetto’s music box figurines. Seriously, Jiminy needs to be fired but instead gets his stupid golden medal by the end of the story. He comes too late and can’t stop good ole Pinoc becoming an actor. And what does Jiminy Lazybones do? He thinks…

To say that Disney upped the animation quality as well as storytelling in the three years from Snow White to this would be a huge understatement.
"Pinocchio" was always that one film I could never watch as a child, it always scared me. Those boys being turned into donkeys at Pleasure Island. Thinking about it even now sends shivers down my back. Truly the things of nightmares.
The best thing about this film would be that it actually has a moral compass. It's not the princess sees a guy for the first time and she…
What if Pinocchio said "My nose will now grow longer"?
It doesn't make a lot of sense, and probably doesn't qualify as lying, but what if Pinocchio said random stuff he doesn't know the answers to, just to see what is and is not true, depending on whether his nose grows or not.
"God is real"
"Aliens are real"
"I'm going to die within the next 50 years"
"Bush did 9/11"
He potentially had all the secrets of the universe in his hands. He's a dumbass if he didn't even try it.
These two criminal assholes and got shit on the fox and his little buddy from Zootopia.
But wow that donkey scene is one of the…
so disturbing....i am so frightened of this movie pls help
"What does an actor want with a conscience, anyway?"
You said it, Mr. Cricket.
Watching this movie brings me nothing but joy. This is the reason it is on my top ten movies of forever and ever. It is Walt Disney, so the animation is of course, flawless in this case. The story is charming and all of the characters are lovable (most of them at least). I can't help but smile every time I put this on my TV screen.
I found this very much more disturbing than I expected on, it's most certainly not a film anyone would make for children nowadays and that's probably a good thing.
Another Disney movie that I haven't seen in about 15 years, and it still holds up. Really interesting characters, awesome animation, and actually some really, REALLY disturbing imagery (Disney would never make a movie like this in 2016). That being said, this isn't one of my absolute favorites from Disney.
When you really think about it Pinocchio is a pretty messed up movie. The story of a puppet who wants to be a "real boy", his nose growing when he lies, turning into a donkey, meeting some of the most bizarre characters ever committed to animation. It's like watching someone's drug induced hallucination, although it does have a message. The blue fairy will let Pinocchio become a real boy if he proves to be "brave, truthful and unselfish"...its message to kids is to have those qualities of being honest, and not self serving, although I doubt any child would pull that message out of what transpires here, as a kid I certainly didn't and I even remember being quite scared by some of the film's more unusual moments. Pinocchio is a fantastically belt tale, one that features an assortment of crazy that could only come from the minds over at 1940's Walt Disney studios.
The greatest Disney film of them all. A pioneer in terms of animation and in using the medium to tell a story that's only limited by the animators' imaginations.
An intelligent movie with memorable characters, beautiful animation, epic action and an unforgettable song that teaches us that dreams can come true. One of Disney's most memorable films and will be remembered for all ages. 10/10
