Synopsis

When the kind and elderly woodcarver Geppetto finishes work on a wooden marionette whom he names Pinocchio, he makes a wish upon a star that Pinocchio become a real boy. In the night, the Blue Fairy magically brings Pinocchio to life, explains to the newly sentient puppet that he can become a real boy if he proves himself brave, truthful and unselfish, and appoints Jiminy Cricket to serve as the wooden boy's conscience. But the naive and trusting Pinocchio is very easily led astray...

Animated yes but surely even animated films featuring a boy are acceptable on BA? This is a Walt Disney classic and beautifully rendered and full of great one liners and musical numbers.

I am not into completely animated (some partly animated is acceptable) films but since this is on the site, I shall give it this rating.
