Roadside Attractions released the trailer for Pinocchio, director Matteo Garrone’s live-action imagining of the iconic classic. Pinocchio premiered at the 2020 Berlin International Film Festival and stars Roberto Benigni, Federico Ielapi, Rocco Papaleo, Massimo Ceccherini. Roadside Attractions will release the film in theaters on December 25th, Christmas Day.
Shot in stunning Italian locations, Matteo Garrone’s rich world of mystery and wonder stars Academy Award® winning actor Roberto Benigni as Geppetto, the old woodcarver whose puppet creation, Pinocchio, magically comes to life with dreams of becoming a real boy. Easily led astray, Pinocchio (nine-year-old Federico Ielapi) tumbles from one misadventure to another as he is tricked, kidnapped and chased by bandits through a wonderful world full of imaginative creatures – from the belly of a giant fish, to the Land Of Toys and the Field Of Miracles.
