Two Pinocchio films are opening later this year — one in September, another in December.

First out of the gate is a Disney+, family-friendly musical fantasy version from director Robert Zemeckis and starring Tom Hanks as Gepetto, and representing a blend of live action and CG.

Three months later Netflix Animation will release a second musical fantasy that sounds like an artier, more angular version — all stop-motion, set in fascist Italy and directed by Guillermo del Toro and Mark Gustafson.

I’m not presuming that the latter version will be less rote and more adult-friendly, but it certainly sounds like it might be that.
