Hello friends, welcome to my blog, I recently saw Pinocchio with my nephews, directed by Robert Zemeckis, where he would reunite with one of the actors I admire the most, Tom Hanks, a duo that amazed us with films like: Forrest Gump, Shipwreck and The Polar Express, so when it was announced that they would come together again in this project, I was very excited to see the surprises that they would bring with this new adaptation of one of the most well-known and famous children's story classics of all time. Disney had already made another adaptation, 1940, in cartoons and it is the one that all or most of us know and saw as children.

Hola amigos, bienvenidos a mi blog, hace poco vi con mis sobrinos Pinocho, dirigida por Robert Zemeckis, en donde se volvería a unir con uno de los actores que más admiro, Tom Hanks, una dupla que nos maravilló con las cintas como: Forrest Gump, Naufrago y El Expreso Polar, así que cuando se anunció que volverían a juntarse en este proyecto, me entusiasmo mucho ver las sorpresas que traerían con esta nueva adaptación de uno de los clásicos de cuentos infantiles más conocido y famoso de todos los tiempos. Disney ya había realizado otra adaptación, 1940, en dibujos animados y es la que todos o la mayoría de nosotros conocemos y vimos de niños.

Pinocchio, from 1940, is very different from this new adaptation, with very marked changes to the plot that we saw as children and whose character made us fall in love with his innocence, his occurrences and his path to becoming a flesh and blood child. This new version, despite having a stature of renowned actors and the quality of its director, I am very disappointed, I understand that with the new era we live in and what is politically correct or not, Disney has changed its policies and They don't like to delve into details that could generate controversy in their films, but with that they bring us a story lacking in originality that doesn't even meet the expectations of those of us who expect much more from this new adaptation.

Pinocho, de 1940, es muy diferente a esta nueva adaptación, con cambios muy marcados a la trama que vimos de niños y cuyo personaje nos enamoró con su inocencia, sus ocurrencias y su camino para convertirse en un niño de carne y hueso. Esta nueva versión, a pesar de contar con una talla de actores de renombres y con la calidad de su director, me decepciono mucho, entiendo que con la nueva era que vivimos y lo que es políticamente correcto o no, Disney ha cambiado sus políticas y no les gusta ahondar en detalles que puedan generar controversias en sus películas, pero con eso nos trae una historia carente de originalidad que ni siquiera llena las expectativas de quienes esperamos mucho más de esta nueva adaptación.

Where we see a Tom Hanks in the role of Geppetto, lost and somewhat uncomfortable in his role, where the visual effects are noticeable in the synchronization of the interactions with Pinocchio, just to name one of the many problems that are noted in the film . One of the wonderful things about Pinocchio in his 1940 version is the moral that he leaves us to earn the right to be a flesh and blood child, what he had to go through his experiences that made him grow up and realize what he is Good or bad, it's what made Disney movies great, the ones we grew up with. Now these new versions lack that essence and are a poor replica of what was once a great story.

Donde vemos a un Tom Hanks en el papel de Geppeto, perdido y algo incomodo en su papel, en donde los efectos visuales se notan en la sincronización de las interacciones con Pinocho, solo por nombrar uno de los tantos problemas que se notan en la película. Una de las cosas maravillosas de Pinocho en su versión de 1940, es la moraleja que nos deja para ganarse el derecho de ser un niño de carne y hueso, lo que tuvo que transitar sus experiencias que lo hicieron crecer y darse cuenta de lo que es bueno o malo, es lo que hizo grande las cintas de Disney, aquellas con la que crecimos. Ahora estas nuevas versiones carecen de esa esencia y son una réplica pobre de lo que una vez fue una gran historia.

One of the salvageable things about this movie is that some moments are good and they took some creative liberties that give it a different feel at times, the visual effects between the characters where there are no humans are unbelievably great, the wall of clocks, the kids that turn into donkeys, they make us forget about the bad and enjoy watching it, some scenes are memorable. My nephews enjoyed those moments, but when I asked him at the end of the film what they thought, his answer was lukewarm and they told me that they preferred the cartoon version.

Una de las cosas salvables de esta película son que algunos momentos son buenos y se tomaron algunas libertades creativas que le dan un toque diferente por momentos, los efectos visuales entre los personajes donde no hay humanos son increíblemente grandiosos, la pared de relojes, los niños que se convierten en burros, hacen por momentos que nos olvidemos de lo malo y disfrutemos viéndolo, algunas escenas son memorables. Mis sobrinos disfrutaron esos momentos, pero cuando le pregunte al finalizar la cinta que les pareció, su respuesta fue tibia y me dijeron que preferían la versión de dibujos animados.

In my opinion, I am disappointed because I expected a great movie that would make me want to see it again with a smile on my face, which I did not. The movie is not all bad, but it had the opportunity to be something great to remember with the quality of its production, director and actors, but they did not dare and it is just a poor adaptation of its predecessor, that's sad.

En mi opinión, me decepciono porque espere una gran película que me hiciera querer verla de nuevo con una sonrisa en el rostro, cosa que no paso. La película no es del todo mala, pero tuvo la oportunidad de ser algo grandioso para recordar con la calidad de su producción, director y actores, pero no se atrevieron y solo es una pobre adaptación de su predecesora, eso es triste.

What year was this new version produced? I haven't seen this one yet but I know I saw the one of 1940 some years ago and I did like it. I'll love to search for this one and see it, I really enjoyed the Pinocchio film and would love to see this new version too.

It came out on the Disney streaming platform, you can see it there, I was disappointed, the original Disney version is much better, although obviously it is not like the book and its original story. Regards ;)

I am pretty reluctant to watch these live actions movies from Disney! They don't change the original story, so I prefer to stick with the animations =)

Sadly you are right, they do not bring creativity or originality from their predecessor, much preferring the animated version. Cheers :)
