'Pinocchio': Image Of Tom Hanks As Geppetto Emerges

Movie fans have been blessed with a sneak peek of Tom Hanks in the role of Geppetto in Disney's live-action retelling of Pinocchio.

Hanks stars as the woodcarver we all know and love, who builds and treats the puppet as if he were his own son.

Pinocchio is directed by Robert Zemeckis and the A-list cast includes Benjamin Evan Ainsworth as Pinocchio, Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Jiminy Cricket, Pinocchio's guide and "conscience," Cynthia Erivo as the Blue Fairy, Keegan-Michael Key as "Honest" John, Lorraine Bracco as new character Sofia the Seagull and Luke Evans as The Coachman.

The film is set to premiere on Disney+ this September.

From his gray curly hair to his unruly mustache, Hanks makes a very convincing impoverished carpenter. The Oscar winner has clearly embraced the role made famous in Disney's animated 1940 version.

It has been rumoured that Hanks would play the toymaker since 2018 and the remake was first confirmed back in December 2020.

The same day, Disney+ announced Peter Pan & Wendy, a London-set remake of 1953's Peter Pan, starring Yara Shahidi as Tinker Bell and Jude Law as Captain Hook, which premieres this year.
