I received a copy of Pinocchio for review purposes. All opinions are my own.
It has been a very long time since I have watched Pinocchio. I think we had it on VHS when I was little but is a movie none of my kids have seen. I was so excited to learn that Pinocchio is now available on DIGITAL HD and in just 2 more weeks you can own the Blu-ray! Now we have it and we will be having a family movie night very soon! Maybe with my Sweet and Salty popcorn 🙂

“Pinocchio” is considered one of the greatest animated films ever made, with two Academy Awards® — for best original score and best original song “When You Wish Upon a Star” – and a rare 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Now, it will delight a whole new generation of dreamers with its masterful animation, unforgettable characters and award-winning music.

“Pinocchio” tells the tale of wood-carver Geppetto’s beloved puppet who embarks on a thrilling quest – with faithful friend Jiminy Cricket – that tests his bravery, loyalty and honesty, all virtues he must learn to fulfill his heart’s desire: to become a real boy.
To help celebrate the release of the movie I have a few bonus clips to share with you:
