If the Lionsgate Pinocchio seems familiar, it’s because it went viral on TikTok after Lionsgate posted this clip captioned, “The yassification of #pinocchio.”

I don’t know how to feel.

Because all these movies are working with basically the same basic plot and characters, here’s a rundown of who’s tackling each role in each movie:


If there’s not a picture of the character included with the actor, it’s because the studio hasn’t released pictures of them yet!

First off, Disney’s Pinocchio will be voiced by Benjamin Evan Ainsworth.

That’s him in The Haunting of Bly Manor on the right.

Netflix has cast Gregory Mann to voice their title role.


This is Gregory in the 2018 film The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, so just imagine him four years older. Or don’t — it’s a voice role.

And if you’re wondering who made Pinocchio’s voice quite so “yassified” in Lionsgate’s adaptation, it’s Pauly Shore.

For Pinocchio’s father/creator Geppetto, Disney has cast Tom Hanks.

She has a parrot. I’m going to just talk about the Disney and Netflix ones now.

That’s most of what we know of the Disney cast, but Netflix has announced plenty of other famous voices like Finn Wolfhard, Cate Blanchett, and Ron Perlman.
