Disney Is Developing 'Pinocchio' Live Action Movie

It has just been announced that classic film Pinocchio will be made into a live action movie by Disney, according to Deadline!

The film’s script will be written by Peter Hedges, who is known for his work on The Odd Life of Timothy Green and About a Boy.

Pinocchio isn’t the only film getting a live-action adaptation, Jungle Book, Beauty in the Beast, and Winnie the Pooh are all going through the same treatment.

Disney has decided to capitalize after the huge success of their latest adaptation of Cinderella, which has grossed $400 million worldwide.

ARE YOU EXCITED about the Pinocchio live-action adaptation?

    They know where the money is, but they might as well just reveal a whole slate of upcoming live-action adaptations and save everybody’s time.

    I said it last week that Disney just need to release one statement that they are going to ruin all of the beloved fairy tales with live action crap. How about just re-release the originals in the big theater like you did before!? Why ruin classics!

    They can’t touch Aladdin. How the fuck are they gonna do Genie without Robin Williams voice. Sorry but that’s gonna be an instant fail on Disneys part if they do a live action of Aladdin.

    Disney sucks now. They have officially ran out of ideas and that’s straight up laziness on their part. Pathetic.

  • mandyz

    They can’t compete at all with the originals, no matter how good the movies turn out. It’s blatant laziness as the reason why they’re doing this. Lazy unoriginal people that want to make money the easy way out at this point. I’m not even looking forward to Beauty and the Beast, blegh. The only one I genuinely liked was Pirates of the Caribbean cause the animated version was not memorable and the original ride before the Johnny Depp makeover sucked ass, it was the most boring ride. Another one I’m really not looking forward to is Sofia Coppola’s adaptation of The Little Mermaid. I’m sorry but hipsterass Sofia Coppola and The Little Mermaid sounds like a joke of a collaboration.
