During D23’s recent Destination D: Amazing Adventures event at Walt Disney World Resort, Tyler Slater and Nicole Nalty announced that the Walt Disney Signature Collection has added the celebrated animated classic Pinochio to its catalogue. An all new trailer was also shown to members of D23: The Official Disney Fan Club:
This will mark the first time that Pinocchio will be released on Digital HD and Disney Movies Anywhere, with the release date being set for January 10, 2017 while the Blu-Ray and DVD versions will be released on January 31, 2017. The film itself is one of the most critically acclaimed entries in Walt Disney’s library, netting multiple awards (including an Academy Awards win for best original score and best original song) and being one of the few films to have a 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
The Walt Disney Signature Collection release of Pinocchio will include several hours of bonus content and exclusive features, such as a new rendition of “When You Wish Upon a Star” by music influencers from Disney’s Maker Studios, never-before-seen artwork from the film’s Pleasure Island sequence, and commentary from Walt himself taken during film production, and a recently restored 1927 short featuring Oswald the Lucky Rabbit.
