Pinocchio as a child soldier looks pretty wild, and Perelman added that his character, Mangiafuoco, would be a dark mentor, like the evil Jiminy Cricket. “I play a pro-fascist city father who tries to manipulate Pinocchio to represent the cause.” Manipulating people is a role for Perelman no stranger toSo it is an ideal choice. Because the future real boy is immune and “all the things a perfect soldier needs”, of course the fascists want him on their side to help keep the system in check.

(To say the least, more than the Disney remake, which is pretty important.) But of course, both movies will be just appetizers. Until the real hot version: who – which Spirit Game Where are you Pinocchio with the flamethrower.
