See the full cast of Disney's Pinocchio remake
After an unusually long and bumpy road to the screen, production is finally underway on Disney's live-action remake of the animated classic Pinocchio. Oscar winner Robert Zemeckis will direct the adaptation, with an all-star cast attached to play the film's various iconic roles, from Jiminy Cricket to Geppetto to the Blue Fairy. Read on to see the full cast.
Tom Hanks as Geppetto
Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Jiminy Cricket
Joseph Gordon-Levitt will voice Pinocchio's conscience and iconic Disney mascot Jiminy Cricket. (However, it's currently unclear whether he'll perform Pinocchio's signature song "When You Wish Upon a Star," as Jiminy's original voice actor Cliff Edwards did in the 1940 film.) The Inception star previously collaborated with Zemeckis on the 2015 Philippe Petit biopic The Walk.
Cynthia Erivo as The Blue Fairy
Cynthia Erivo will add to her expanding filmography with the role of the Blue Fairy, who brings Pinocchio to life and eventually makes him a real boy. Presumably, she'll bring her talented vocal pipes to the role as well; perhaps she'll be the one to perform "When You Wish Upon a Star."
Luke Evans as The Coachman
A returning player in the Disney live-action remake game (he played Gaston in 2017's Beauty and the Beast), Luke Evans will star as the sinister Coachman, one of the most terrifying villains in the Disney animated canon. (It's he who spirits Pinocchio away to Pleasure Island, where boys are turned into donkeys.)
