Hollywood is going to give the live action, “Pinocchio” another try, and it will be brought to us by Warner Bros. studios. WB’s hired their writer for the live action, “Pinocchio”. That writer is, Bryan Fuller.
Pinocchio, is one of my favorite movies ever made. The first time they tried it live action was the 1996 movie that starred, Jonathan Taylor Thomas. That movie failed in the box office. I’ve seen that version and it did suck hard. It was a big mess.
The Disney animated, “Pinocchio” is such a classic, that it doesn’t need to be live action, in my opinion. If it failed with the Jonathan Taylor Thomas version, Warner Bros. will fail with this one too. A live action, “Pinocchio” will be very difficult to make. You’ve seen the animated one, haven’t ya? Will Warner Bros. version be all live action? Obviously not. They will make a lot of it, CGI.
They’ll make Jimminy Cricket, CGI. They’ll make Monstro the Whale, CGI. The Blue Fairy will be CGI. What about that song “Wish you Upon a Star” that Jimminy sings? WB’s may have to get the rights from “Disney” for the songs that were sung from the original animated film. I’m sorry but this film will probably suck. WB’s wasting their time and money.
