The Adventures of Pinocchio is a 1996 fantasy family film, directed by Steve Barron and based on the original 1883 novel of the same name by Carlo Collodi. Barron collaborated with Sherry Mills, Tom Bender and Barry Berman on the screenplay. The film was an American, British, French, Czech, and German venture produced by New Line Cinema, The Kushner-Locke Company, Savoy Pictures, Pangaea Holdings and Twin Continental Films.


One of puppet-maker Geppetto's creations comes magically to life. This puppet named Pinocchio has one major desire, to become a real boy someday, but he has to learn to act responsibly.


Although the film overall was a pre-lay production, some ADR did occur during post-production. The character of Pepe the Cricket was initially voiced by Wallace Shawn, however, when the film was released his voice had been replaced by David Doyle. This was likely a last minute decision as Shawn's original voice still appears in the trailer for the film.
