Pinocchio, the true hero of the Multiverse


Multiverse Pinocchio is the definition we have coined to describe in a synthetic but clear way all the different iterations of The Adventures of Pinocchio. Story of a puppet, the classic fable by Carlo Collodi first published in 1881. Pinocchio is the best known Italian fairy tale in the world, and boasts a whole series of iterations ranging from theater to cinema to animation, up to the gaming world. The most recent reinterpretation of the story is the new live-action movie from Disney Plus, of which you can read our review. The film is directed by Robert Zemeckis (Back to the Future) and stars Tom Hanks as Geppetto, while Joseph Gordon-Lewitt lends his voice to Jiminy Cricket.

In the film, the Prince of Laughter plays a penniless musician named Antonio Scannagatti who, during the many vicissitudes that see him as the protagonist, also ends up interpreting his original version of Pinocchio in a theatrical performance.

Several years later, in 2019, Benigni himself played the role of Mastro Geppetto in the version of the Multiverse Pinocchio directed by Matteo Garrone . The film stood out for its 15 nominations for the 2020 David di Donatello; of these, 5 turned into prizes for visual special effects, make-up, hairstyles, costumes and set design. Furthermore, it stands out for the presence of an actor cast that includes Gigi Proietti in the role of Mangiafuoco and Rocco Papaleo and Massimo Ceccherini respectively in the roles of the Cat and the Fox.

Matteo Garrone loves the story of Pinocchio very much: in fact , he made the very first storyboard for his film when he was only six years old. Costing about 11 million euros, the film features special effects obtained through prosthetic make-up instead of computer graphics, and the results are really excellent.



The most famous exponent of the Multiverse Pinocchio in the field of animation remains the great Disney classic of 1940, whose iconic musical theme “When You Wish Upon A Star” has become the theme that accompanies the Disney logo in their productions. The company hoped to repeat the enormous success of its first animated feature film, Snow White, from 1937, but the outbreak of World War II the year before the film's release did not allow it to reach this milestone. However, from a technical point of view, 1940's Pinocchio still remains one of Disney's masterpieces today, thanks to the minutiae of details and the incredible fluidity and naturalness of the animations of both the characters and atmospheric elements such as, for example, the rain and the smoke.

Among the other representations of the fairytale, the Japanese animated series The New Adventures of Pinocchio deserves to be mentioned. The series, which consists of a total of 52 episodes, saw the light in the land of the Rising Sun in 1972, but arrived in Italy only a few years later, in 1980. One of the major differences compared to the original version by Carlo Collodi is the fact that the names of the characters, in this version, have been translated into Japanese: for example, Pinocchio is called Mokku, and Geppetto simply Ojiisan, "grandfather", thus reflecting the "grandfather" used in Italian. Another substantial difference consists in the general atmospheres of this iteration of the Multiverse Pinocchio, decidedly darker and more disturbing than the original.

Finally, how can we forget the funny version of Pinocchio from the films of Shrek?


We conclude our journey in the Multiverse Pinocchio talking about the influence of the well-known puppet on the videogame world. Pinocchio is a 1995 video game based on the 1940 Disney animated film. Released for Sega Mega Drive, Game Boy and SNES, the title is a 2D side-scrolling puzzle platformer:

But Pinocchio continues to exercise his fascination with the world of video games even today: next year, Lies of P is expected to be released, a third-person action role-playing video game with elements from Soulslike whose settings also recall another From Software title created by Hidetaka Miyazaki: Bloodborne. The title will be released for PC with Microsoft Windows operating system, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X | S.

The title, created by Round8 Studio and published by Neowiz Games, is a reinterpretation of the story in a decidedly more violent, ruthless and brutal key, in which Pinocchio is no longer a puppet, but a biomechanical humanoid who will have to clash with other biomechanical creatures like him. In addition to the ability to create and equip new weapons, the game system of Lies of P also provides for the replacement of the mechanical parts that make up the body of Pinocchio, in order to provide him with new skills. In addition, the choices of the players at certain moments in the story will influence its subsequent course.

The new live action movie of Pinocchio is available for viewing exclusively on Disney Plus. To take advantage of this and many other contents, buy Amazon Fire Stick TV.
