Hollywood A-lister Tom Hanks, 66, plays carpenter Geppetto, who creates the puppet that dreams of becoming a real boy, in a new TV version of the tale.

The classic story first hit screens in a 1940 Disney cartoon.

This time Pinocchio, voiced by Briton Benjamin Evan Ainsworth, 13, has no strings attached as he, and the strings, are computer-generated.

Luke Evans, 43, who plays The Coachman, said: “The storyline is very, very similar.”

  • Pinocchio is on Disney+ from September 8.
