I was invited by Disney on the Rogue One Press Trip to facilitate my reviews. All onions shared are my own.
I visited the Walt Disney Family Museum to enjoy “Wish Upon A Star: The Art of Pinocchio” Exhibit. That was during the Rogue One Press Trip. I was taken by how much art, creation, innovation and definitely work went into creating the beautiful classic that Pinocchio is. The Art of Pinocchio shared tons of behind the scenes on the making of the animated film. If you didn’t have the chance to be blown away by the exhibit, watch bonus features! You will get some history and interesting fact on this beautiful movie via the bonus features on the blu-ray / DVD and digital release of Pinocchio.

From the mid-1930s to the mid-1940s, The Walt Disney Studios created five cinematic classics that explored new possibilities and redefined the art of animation: Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937), Pinocchio (1940), Fantasia (1940), Dumbo (1941), and Bambi (1942). Produced at the end of the Depression in the late-1930s, Pinocchio brilliantly deployed state-of-the-art hand-crafted drawings and various technical breakthroughs—such as the Multiplane Camera— to tell an epic story. Touted by many as the crowning achievement of the extraordinary Golden Age of Walt Disney’s early studio, this groundbreaking film pioneered cutting-edge animation and sound technologies and firmly established a blueprint for Disney filmmaking that remains intact today. It became the first animated feature film to win a competitive Academy Award®—in fact it won two—and is now considered one of the finest films ever made.
