Well, this is exciting! Disney just announced that they’re giving another one of their classics a live-action adaptation — this time it’s Pinocchio!
Peter Hedges is writing the film, which will be loosely based on the original Pinocchio story about a marionette carved from wood who dreams of being a real boy. Pinocchio’s dream does come true, but he has a problem with stretching the truth, which makes his nose grow longer with each lie he tells.
Carlo Collodi wrote the story in 1883, a book called The Adventures Of Pinocchio.

I’m still holding out hope that we’ll get an Aladdin remake. (Please, Disney!)
We’ll post casting details and more once they’ve revealed!
