While Disney probably aren’t looking to remake their very first animated feature, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, any time soon (Snow White and the Huntsman beat them to the punch on that one), there is no reason they can’t redo their second movie instead.
Pinocchio is an age-old tale that perhaps surprisingly hasn’t had a big-screen adaptation in a while (though some have tried). Seeing as they made the most definitive version in 1940, Disney should get on with rebooting the story for a modern audience.
It was actually revealed last year that work has indeed begun on a live-action Pinocchio, with Robert Downey Jr. starring as Geppetto and producing with his wife, Susan Downey. Let’s wish upon a star that the Downeys’ involvement will get this one going sooner rather than later.
