Now part of the Signature Walt Disney Collection, Walt Disney’s classic animated motion picture, Pinocchio, arrives in stores today, January 31st, 2017.
I’ve enjoyed watching the film again, now with my kids at home, and it comes with an amazing array of special bonus content to learn more about the enduring classic.
The Blu-ray offers a deeper look into film production, its characters, voices, music and more. Here is a list of the special content (Bonus materials vary by format). And don’t forget to check out the giveaway below!
Pinocchio Blu-ray Bonus Extras
The Pinocchio Project
- When You Wish Upon a Star – JR Aquino, Tanner Patrick and Alex G talk about their experiences recording a new, more modern version of the classic song.
- Music Video: When You Wish Upon a Star
Walt’s Story Meetings: Pleasure Island
Pete Docter, Director of Inside Out, Up and Monsters Inc, along with historian J.B. Kaufman, give us deeper insight into the film’s Pleasure Island scenes. Through transcripts of story meetings preserved by the Walt Disney Archives, and story sketches from Disney’s Animation Research Library, we now know that the sequence was once called Boobyland. It once included a song called, “Three Cheers for Anything,” that didn’t make it to the film.
In Walt’s Words
Interviews, photos, and images of Walt during the production of Pinocchio. This documentary presents scenes from Walt Disney Studios and humorous anecdotes told by Walt himself.
Oswald The Lucky Rabbit in “Poor Papa” cartoon.
Enjoy one of the first Oswald cartoons.
Classic Bonus Content
- No Strings Attached: The Making of Pinocchio – A 59-minute documentary where animators and historians talk about the story, the animation, the models, and character development. Animators who created or supervised each character show us drawings and tell how they changed during the filming, including the cuckoo clocks and voices.
- Deleted Scenes – Three deleted scenes were found at the Animation Research Library and now you can watch them: Story of the Grandfather Tree, Starving in Belly of Whale and an Alternate ending. 3 scenes.
- The Sweatbox – Walt Disney developed different techniques to make the animation work easier like the multiplane camera, storyboards, and the sweatbox. The sweatbox was a small projection room with no air conditioning, hence the name, where Walt and animators would review the projects (a series of still drawings in sequence) on the screen.
- Geppettos Then and Now – Enjoy this very entertaining video with toy makers and toy collectors from around the world, including thoughts about the future of toys.
- Live Action Reference Footage – A rare video about a project developed at Disney Hyperion Studios in 1939, thought to be a training aid for new animators.
- Original trailers
- When You Wish Upon a Star – A pop music video by Meaghan Jette Martin
