Disney has released the first trailer for its forthcoming live-action Pinocchio remake starring Tom Hanks.

The film will be released straight to Disney+ as part of the streamer’s Disney+ Day on 8 September.

The film is directed by Robert Zemeckis who previously worked with Hanks on Forrest Gump. Hanks plays Pinocchio’s creator, Geppetto the woodcarver.

Meanwhile, Benjamin Evan Ainsworth plays the eponymous puppet come to life while Cynthia Erivo is the Blue Fairy and Joseph Gordon-Levitt is Jiminy Cricket. Keegan-Michael Key, Lorraine Bracco and Luke Evans also star.

“Star light, star bright, first star I see tonight,” Geppetto says in the teaser, reciting the famous prayer from the original film. “I wish I may, I wish I might, have the wish I wish tonight.”
