Finding the ideal voice actors for certain roles was another topic the director covered. “They must comprehend this invisible wall in this circumstance. They must be performing. They cannot simply stand there and read lines when they are not on camera. They must be acting and performing the lines. Finding the right actor for the part is always important, whether it’s live-action or visual effects. My voice actors are all amazing.
The appearance of the character in the 1940 animated film that served as its inspiration for the new Pinocchio. The character in the live-action version is three-dimensional and has a wood grain because he is made of wood, which, like skin, needs to move precisely when he is a live puppet. When you ‘dimensionalize’ an animated character, you always have to make changes, Robert said.
Benjamin joins a stellar cast of characters. In Pinocchio, Keegan-Michael Key plays Honest John, Keegan-Levitt plays Jiminy Cricket, Cynthia Erivo plays the Blue Fairy, Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays Geppetto, and Lorraine Bracco plays Sofia.
