Blu-ray Review: "Pinocchio" Walt Disney Signature Collection


Disney gives everyone a chance to re-visit their beloved classic "Pinocchio" with its re-release for the studio's Signature Collection. When it comes to the Mouse House's animated films, most are geared towards females. "Pinocchio" gives young boys some entertainment and wonderful moral lessons all in the same package. Also, let's be honest - nothing beats good old-fashioned hand-drawn cartoons.


A magical puppet named Pinocchio embarks on fantastic adventures with his faithful friend Jiminy Cricket by his side. His bravery, loyalty and honesty are tested along the way in his quest for his heart's desire. Pinocchio desires to become a real boy.


New bonus materials for the “Pinocchio” Walt Disney Signature Collection include three new featurettes entitled “The Project,” "Walt's Story Meetings: Pleasure Island," and "In Walt's Words – 'Pinocchio.'" There’s also an updated music video for “When You Wish Upon a Star,” which features musicians JR Aquino, Tanner Patrick, and Alex G. We also get a new cut of the black-and-white classic animated short starring Oswald the Lucky Rabbit in "Poor Papa." Various other special features are found from previous releases of the film on DVD and Blu-ray. They include deleted scenes, audio commentary, a “making of” documentary, trailers, and much more.

"Pinocchio" was originally released in 1940. It was directed by Ben Sharpsteen and Hamilton Luske. The voice cast includes Cliff Edwards, Dickie Jones, Christian Rub, Mel Blanc, Walter Catlett, Charles Judels, Evelyn Venable, and Frankie Darro. The movie is rated G for General Audiences.
