The new teaser trailer for Disney Plus Pinocchio has way more dislikes on YouTube than likes.
Pinocchio is making a big return in the form of a brand new live-action film on Disney Plus. What seemed like a good idea at first is now being absolutely slammed by fans after the first teaser trailer was released.
Tens of thousands of viewers have disliked the video, surpassing the number of likes by a huge amount. When the trailer had 22k likes it had 78k dislikes.
Well, if you look at the trailer you may see some attempts by Disney to make the film "woke", maybe too "woke" for its own good. We see something like a female version of Pinocchio, as well as a completely different look to the iconic Blue Fairy. I think the biggest reason for the dislikes based on the comments is that the teaser trailer doesn't really feature Pinocchio in it at all, despite him being in the thumbnail.
The upcoming Disney Plus film is an adaptation of the original Disney classic and follows Pinocchio, a marionette, who must earn the right to become a real boy by proving to be truthful, brave, and selfless. He is assisted by Jimmy Cricket, his assigned conscience.
The film is directed by Robert Zemeckis and stars Tom Hanks, Cynthia Erivo, Luke Evans, Benjamin Evan Ainsworth, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Keegan-Michael Key, and Lorraine Bracco
Pinocchio is set to be released on Disney+ on September 8, 2022.
