Editorial: Pinocchio – Movie & Music

I recently saw the latest version of Pinocchio by Disney, starring Tom Hanks and Benjamin Evan Ainsworth (the voice of Pinocchio). The musical parts of the film were fantastic to watch. They gave the songs a lovely visual to complement them. 

The first musical number was Cynthia Erivo singing When You Wish Upon a Star. Her performance was soulful and beautiful. The visual effects of the Blue Fairy’s wand added a nice touch to the musical bit.

Tom Hanks’s musical numbers were joyful and entertaining, especially the scene when he dances with Pinocchio. It was a lovely musical sequence. It reminded me of the cartoon version I saw when I was a kid.

A tremendous musical number was the scene with Pinocchio and Honest John (Keegan-Michael Key). Keegan-Michael Key did an incredible job singing Hi-Diddle-Dee-Dee (An Actor’s Life For Me)The clip was impressive to watch. 

The heartfelt moment was when Kyanne Lamaya sang I Will Always Dance with the wooden ballerina. It was touching and sweet.

Another impressive musical scene was the Pleasure Island sequence. The visual effects, along with the performances of Luke Evans singing The Coachman To Pleasure Island.  

A remarkable music sequence is when Pinocchio (Benjamin Evan Ainsworth) performed I’ve Got No Strings. I enjoyed watching a CGI Pinocchio dancing to this song in a live-action version, which was impressive. 

Watching this live-action version of Pinocchio was so much fun to watch. There was a feeling of nostalgia and excitement. When I saw Pinocchio’s look in the live-action movie was just like the cartoon version. It was a lovely homage. The film was phenomenal and incredibly well done.
