The Three CommentEARS Episode 30: Pinocchio


Like a bolt out of the blue, The Three CommentEARS return for the new year with a commentary for Walt Disney’s Pinocchio, in honor of its recent Walt Disney Signature Collection release! Your hosts for this daring journey, Pedro “Geppetto” Hernandez, Tony “Pinocchio” Lopez, Brian “Jiminy Cricket” Slatky, and Jen “Blue Fairy” Seggio, analyze and discuss the many merits that have lead Pinocchio to be praised as not just one of the best Disney films in the animated canon, but as an achievement in the art of filmmaking. Some of these include the production staff that created its ambitious animation and effects through practical means, how Disney’s treatment of the original story lead to some significant character development changes in the final film, and its allegorical themes of faith, religion and morality.
