Disney has unveiled a first look at Tom Hanks in the upcoming live-action remake of the 1940 animated classic, Pinocchio.

The veteran actor is set to take on the role of Geppetto, the childless woodworker who crafts Pinocchio to life. Unlike the Geppetto in the original film, Hanks’ portrayal sees the character without glasses and with curlier hair, but still maintains the greying moustache. Disney’s first-look image also gives a peek at a non-animated Pinocchio, who is designed similarly to its animated counterpart with the yellow hat and red feather, pointy nose and red clothing.

Joining Hanks in the cast is The Haunting of Bly Manor’s Benjamin Evan Ainsworth, who will be lending his voice to bring Pinocchio to life. The film will be helmed by Robert Zemeckis, who also co-wrote the screenplay along Chris Weitz.

Take a look at the image above. Pinocchio will exclusively hit Disney+ this September.

Elsewhere in entertainment, Warner Bros. changed the release date of many big titles including the Shazam! and Aquaman sequels, Black Adam, The Flash and Wonka.
