Disney has released a teaser trailer for the all-new live-action Pinocchio, set to premiere on Disney Plus on 8 September.

Directed by Robert Zemeckis, the film includes a star-studded cast led by Tom Hanks as Geppetto, the woodcarver who builds and treats Pinocchio (played by Benjamin Evan Ainsworth) as if he were his own son. The cast also features Cynthia Erivo (as the Blue Fairy), Joseph Gordon-Levitt (as Jiminy Cricket), Keegan-Michael Key (as "Honest" John), Lorraine Bracco (as Sofia the Seagull), and Luke Evans (as the Coachman).
