Out of a magical, talking piece of wood, the lonely woodcarver Geppetto carves himself a son--a mischievous puppet he names Pinocchio. Ignorant of right and wrong, Pinocchio runs away from Geppetto, and embarks on a series of increasingly fantastic misadventures, until he learns that he can become a real boy by doing good deeds.
The Adventures of Pinocchio is a classic children's story and has been adapted many times since it was originally published in 1883, including the animated classic, a 2002 live-action film starring Breckin Meyer and Glenn Close, and served as inspiration for Steven Spielberg's 2001 film A. I. Artificial Intelligence.
