"Pinocchio" von Carlo Collodi wurde schon mehrfach verfilmt...

Erzählt wird die Geschichte vom armen Holzbengel Pinocchio, der seinem armen Vater Geppetto zunächst nur Kummer bereitet, am Ende aber durch allerlei spannende Abenteuer und lehrreiche Erfahrungen doch noch zur Vernunft kommt und zur Belohnung ein richtiger Junge wird...

Am bekanntesten ist sicherlich Walt Disney's "Pinocchio" (1940)...

Besonders beliebt ist die TV-Zeichentrickserie "Pinocchio" (1976) mit dem Titelsong von Mary Roos...

Die Realverfilmung "Pinocchio" (2002) mit Roberto Benigni in der Titelrolle startete am 13. März 2003 in den deutschen Kinos...

"P3K: Pinocchio 3000" (2004) bietet einen computeranimierten Hampelmann und wurde von polyband am 11. Januar 2008 unter dem Titel "Pinocchio Reloaded" hierzulande auf DVD veröffentlicht...
Es ist das Jahr 3000. In der hochmodernen Stadt Scamboville lebt Geppetto in einem winzigen Häuschen mit einem kleinen Garten, das zwischen den Türmen und riesengroßen Bildschirmen versteckt liegt. Als Handwerker der alten Schule liebt es Geppetto Dinge zu erfinden und an Computern zu basteln. Jedoch fehlt ihm eine Sache in seinem Leben: ein eigener Sohn.
Somit erschafft Geppetto einen Prototyp Superroboter namens Pinocchio, der im Stande ist, Emotionen zu zeigen. Pinocchio kann lachen, sprechen, tanzen und singen. Bevor er jedoch ein Herz bekommen kann, um ein richtiger Junge zu werden, besteht Cyberina darauf, dass Pinocchio den Unterschied zwischen Gut und Böse kennen lernt.
Im Hintergrund lauert Scamboli, der technokratische, machthungrige Bürgermeister von Scamboville. Er ist eifersüchtig auf Geppettos faszinierenden Pinocchio. Um sich zu rächen, plant Scamboli alle Kinder in Roboter zu verwandeln und beeinflusst Pinocchio ihm zu helfen...

Guillermo del Toro (u.a. "Hellboy", "Pan's Labyrinth") produziert eine 3D-Stop-Motion-Version des klassischen Materials, die wohl nicht vor 2013 in die Kinos kommen wird... Daneben ist das "Pinocchio"-Prequel "The Three Misfortunes of Geppetto" in Planung... Nicht zu vergessen: Tim Burton will auch einen "Pinocchio" machen, inkl. Robert Downey Jr. als Geppetto !!!


[08.01.2012] Heat Vision berichtet über ein weiteres "Pinocchio"-Projekt...
Tim Burton's interest in tackling a live-action version of Pinocchio is heating up, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. And Burton's choice to topline the movie is Robert Downey Jr. as Geppetto, the woodcarver who creates the puppet who dreams of becoming a real boy. [...]
In the version being developed at Warner Bros., Geppetto embarks on a quest to reunite with his missing marionette. The well-regarded script is by Pushing Daisies creator Bryan Fuller. Dan Jinks (American Beauty) is producing.
Neither Burton nor Downey has a deal with Warners, but sources say Burton is keen to direct the film and has begun talks with the studio, so it's just a question of whether Pinocchio will be his next movie. The Alice in Wonderland director also is eyeing an adaptation of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children at Fox, among other projects. Warners wants to move quickly with Pinocchio, so if Burton chooses to make another movie first, the studio might move on to other directors.
According to two well-placed sources, Downey has expressed serious interest in the project (and in working with Burton), but his busy schedule must still be worked out. Warner Bros. is hoping that Burton and Downey commit soon so the project can be fast-tracked.
If deals are made, Pinocchio would return Downey to Warners, which is behind his Sherlock Holmes franchise, the latest installment of which currently is in theaters. Downey also starred in the 2010 Warners comedy Due Date.
Burton is currently at work finishing Warner Bros.' Dark Shadows, based on the cult television series. That film is set for release in May. [...]
There are several other Pinocchio projects in various stages of development, including a stop-motion version being shepherded by Guillermo Del Toro.

[15.10.2011] Deadline berichtet über ein "Pinocchio"-Prequel...
20th Century Fox has acquired the spec script The Three Misfortunes of Geppetto for Shawn Levy’s 21 Laps. Levy is attached to direct the script by Michael Vukadinovich. It’s a prequel to the story of Pinocchio, in which Geppetto endures a life of misfortune, war and adventure, all to be with Julia Moon, his true love. The sweep is reminiscent of Big Fish or The Princess Bride and it creates a fresh way into the Pinocchio story at a time when revisionist fairy tales are dominating the movie landscape. Warner Bros last year set up a live action Pinocchio film that has the interest of Tim Burton. 21 Laps execs Dan Cohen and Billy Rosenberg brought in the script.
The spec went out last night and the mid against high six figure deal just closed. [...]

[18.02.2011] Bei CS! gibt es erste Bilder und neue Infos zu Guillermo del Toro's "Pinocchio"-Projekt...
Guillermo Del Toro and The Jim Henson Company have joined forces with Pathe to develop and produce a 3D stop motion animated version of PINOCCHIO based on the edition of Carlo Collodi's classic tale illustrated by Gris Grimly. Grimly will co-direct with Mark Gustafson (Animation Director on THE FANTASTIC MR. FOX). The team plans to move forward with production of the film later in 2011.
In this new version of one of the world's best-loved tales, the puppet Pinocchio embarks on a series of extraordinary and thrilling adventures, proving himself to be as indestructible as his love for his father.
Del Toro and his frequent collaborator Matthew Robbins have been developing the screen story over the past year, and Robbins wrote the screenplay. Del Toro will produce with Lisa Henson and Jason Lust of The Jim Henson Company and Allison Abbate (THE FANTASTIC MR. FOX, TIM BURTON'S CORPSE BRIDE, FRANKENWEENIE). Gary Ungar will serve as executive producer, as will Francois Ivernel and Cameron McCracken for Pathe. Veteran rock musician and film composer Nick Cave will serve as music consultant for the production.
The team will develop the puppets and other 3D elements with UK-based MacKinnon and Saunders, which has performed the same duties on THE FANTASTIC MR. FOX and TIM BURTON'S CORPSE BRIDE and FRANKENWEENIE.
"I believe that our tale of PINOCCHIO recaptures the darker, more daunting aspects of the book that have been missing from previous film incarnations and takes advantage of all the allegorical aspects of the tale. Gris and Mark have a clear vision of this world. Matthew, the directors and I have constructed an adaptation that I feel enormously proud of," said Guillermo Del Toro.
"Stop motion animation will be a new style of telling this well-known tale, a hand-crafted style with which we were eager to work since it requires a high level of artistry and craftsmanship that is similar to the work of The Jim Henson Company," said Lisa Henson, CEO of The Jim Henson Company.
"There is a perfect match between the visionary world of Guillermo, the story of Pinocchio and Gris' wonderful illustrations. The talent and experience of the Henson team will ensure that Gris, Mark and Guillermo's vision comes to life in the most thrilling way," said Francois Ivernel, Executive Vice-President, Pathe.

[15.11.2008] berichtet über ein neues "Pinocchio"-Projekt...
Guillermo del Toro's developing "Pinocchio" as a stop-motion feature with the Jim Henson Co. as a darker version of the original fairy tale.
Project will be produced by JHC co-toppers Brian Henson and Lisa Henson along with senior VP Jason Lust. Del Toro will exec produce.
Del Toro's working on the screenplay with Gris Grimley, who illustrated a 2002 version of "Pinocchio." Grimley and Adam Parrish King will co-direct the film.
Del Toro disclosed the project in an interview with the website and said that it would take about three years to complete.
Pinocchio first appeared in the 19th Century book "The Adventures of Pinocchio" by Carlo Collodi. Walt Disney produced the first feature version of the story with his animated "Pinocchio" in 1940.
"Pinocchio" is the latest in a long list of projects to which del Toro's attached. Top priority is New Line and MGM's "The Hobbit," the two-picture project he's committed the next five years to as director and co-writer with Peter Jackson, Fran Walsh and Philippa Boyens.
He also has a three-year first-look deal with Universal, where he's setting up remakes of "Frankenstein," "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde" and "Slaughterhouse-Five" and an adaptation of "Drood" and several other projects [...]

[24.06.2003] Bei Filmax Animation gibt es erste Bilder des CGI-Films "P3K: Pinocchio 3000"...
In the futuristic city of Scamboville, hidden amongst the tall towers and giant video screens, is a tiny shack with a little garden where Geppetto lives. He's an old craftsman who loves to invent and thinker with computers, and about to realise his lifelong dream: to have a son of his own.
Helped by his faithful assistant, Spencer the cyberpenguin, and by the holographic fairy Ciberina, Geppetto creates Pinocchio, a prototype super-robot. Pinocchio can laugh, talk, dance and sing, but before he can given a heart and become a real boy, Cyberina insists that he learn the difference between right and wrong.

[31.05.2003] AICN berichtet, dass Disney scheinbar über ein Bild-für-Bild-Neuverfilmung des hauseigenen Klassikers nachdenkt... Computeranimiert... Quasi ein CGI-Kopie !!!

[13.03.2003] Heute startet Roberto Benigni's "Pinocchio" in den deutschen Kinos...

[04.02.2003] CS! berichtet über einen weiteren Pinocchio-Film...
Malcolm McDowell, Howie Mandel and Whoopi Goldberg have been added to the vocal cast of CineGroupe's P3K, Pinocchio 3000, says Variety. Canada's first full-length 3-D animated feature, "P3K" is slated for a 2004 release.
McDowell will voice Mayor Scamboli, the technocratic megalomaniacal leader of Scamboville; Mandel voices Gepetto's trusted cyborg penguin assistant, Spencer; and Goldberg voices good fairy Cyberina.
Computer graphic artist Daniel Robichaud, whose credits include Apollo 13 and Titanic, will make his helming debut on the project from a script by Peter Svatek.
CineGroupe will handle worldwide distribution excluding Canada, England, Spain and Latin America.

[02.01.2003] Bei AICN gibt es einen gnadenlosen Verriss von "The Foywonder"...
[...] There is only one word that can truly sum up Begigni’s PINNOCHIO - catastrophic. The film is a catastrophic disaster of such epic proportions that Irwin Allen could have used it as the basis for one of his all-star disaster pics. It fails on every single level. Nothing works. Nothing. PINNOCHIO aspires to be whimsical, magical, funny, and heartwarming. It fails and fails miserably. Instead the film is annoying, incoherent, unfunny, and virtually unwatchable. Even the life lessons the story teaches ring hollow. Worst of all, the film is extremely boring. [...]

[18.11.2002] Die NZ titelte kürzlich: "«Pinocchio» soll für Italien den Oscar holen"...

[17.10.2002] Bei Caltanet gibt es mehrere "Pinocchio"-Szenenbilder...

[08.10.2002] Die NZ meldet...
[...] In den ersten Rezensionen des Films wird «Pinocchio» überwiegend gelobt. So nannte Carlo Rosella vom Wochenmagazin «Panorama» den Film «das Schönste, was ich in den letzten 40 Jahren im Kino gesehen habe.» Auch andere Zeitungen urteilten positiv. Lee Marshall vom «Screen Daily»-Magazin allerdings sieht schlechte Chancen für «Pinocchio» auf dem internationalen Markt.
Der Film sei zu sehr auf Benigni ausgerichtet und verpasse «die Chance, zu erzählen, warum Pinocchio auch heute noch von Interesse ist». «Benigni parodiert sich geradezu selbst.» Für Zuschauer von 5-10 Jahren sei «Pinocchio» das Richtige, «aber alle anderen dürften einen unangenehmen süsslichen Geschmack im Mund haben.»
