While the Pinocchio trailer teaser doesn’t fully reveal the titular puppet, the first looks at the live-action Jiminy Cricket and Blue Fairy offer exciting glimpses of what’s to come from the Disney remake. Two-time Oscar nominee Cynthia Erivo looks to be bringing her own unique take to the iconic Blue Fairy character, namely with her own rendition of the Cliff Edwards’ “When You Wish Upon A Star.” The track, which would become the official song used during Disney’s studio logos for films and TV shows, was originally sung by Jiminy Cricket in the 1940 Pinocchio animated movie, pointing to one of the changes made for the live-action film.

2022 is gearing up to be the year of Pinocchio as three different adaptations of the iconic children’s book are coming out at various points this year. This past March saw the release of an animated film starring Pauly Shore as the titular doll while the Disney version will swiftly be followed by Netflix’s stop-motion adaptation from Guillermo del Toro and starring Gregory Mann as Pinocchio and Ewan McGregor as Sebastian J. Cricket. While audiences await the arrival of Robert Zemeckis’ Pinocchio, they can look forward to the first trailer premiering this week.
