Wishing upon a star, the Blue Fairy (Cynthia Erivo) lands in Geppetto’s workshop and turns Pinocchio into a puppet without strings, and assigns Jiminy Cricket (voice of Joseph Gordon-Levitt) as his conscience. As his new father tries to normalize his life, he is kidnapped by Honest John (voice of Keegan-Michael Key) and sold to the traveling show of Stromboli (Giuseppe Battiston). A rescue by his father and friends are in order.
