New ending, more big changes in 2022 movie

spoiler ALERT! We’re discussing important plot details and the ending of Disney+’s new “Pinocchio” remake.

The world’s most famous wooden boy is getting a computer-generated makeover.

Disney is taking a dip in its wellspring of animated classics thanks to “Pinocchio,” a live-action remake of the studio’s 1940 film (now streaming on Disney+). The film, which received just 30% positive reviews on Rotten Tomatoes, follows a puppet named Pinocchio (voiced by Benjamin Evan Ainsworth), who comes to life thanks to the Blue Fairy (Cynthia Erivo). And with the help of his “conscience”, a cricket named Jiminy Cricket (voiced by Joseph Gordon-Levitt), he learns how to be brave, truthful and selfless.

Robert Zemeckis directs, reuniting with his “Forrest Gump” star Tom Hanks, who plays Geppetto, Pinocchio’s woodworker father. Here are the biggest changes between the original and the new movies:

New Disney+ ‘Pinocchio’ name-checks Chris Pine, and has a ‘Toy Story’ Easter egg

No, you don’t have to worry about Jimmy Cricket doing tiktok dance. But Zemeckis and co-writer Chris Weitz attempt to modernize “Pinocchio” with some social media-friendly references. The fake fox sells the traveling puppet Stromboli (Giuseppe Battiston) to Pinocchio before Honest John (voiced by Keegan-Michael Key), promises the Wood Boy riches and stardom, makes him drop out of school and “a To be an influential person”. He later suggested stage names for Pinocchio, one of which is Chris Pine (of “Don’t Worry Darling” fame).
