A SOULESS REMAKE THAT’S

AS WOODEN AS PINOCCHIO


 

On February 23rd, 1940, Walt Disney Studios released Pinocchio, their second animated feature film that was based off of 1883 Italian children’s novel “The Adventures of Pinocchio” by Carlo Collodi.

Despite the feature receiving critical acclaim during its theatrical release from critics and moviegoers, Pinocchio

A SOLID FAMILY MUSICAL THAT

PLENTY OF SONG IN ITS HEART


 

Adapting a well-familiar and / or popular narrative from literature has been around for quite some time, with Hollywood finding interest in proven stories to translate into cinematic tales. Within this grouping selective “page to screen” film adaptations, the idea of children or kid’s literature has always been fertile ground for producing kid-friendly movies throughout the years….be it animated or live-action. With so many authors out there (both classic and newer titles), the choices are numerous and bountiful, especially in extrapolating some of the most popular children’s books, including both chapter books and picture books, that are ripe for a silver screen treatment.
