Pinocchio's singing voice during the "'IL Colosso" song was provided by Brian May, only his vocals were speed up to match Jonathan Taylor Thomas's voice and the soundtrack credits "Just William' as Pinocchio's singing voice. See more »
Saw it on DVD, pretty good transfer from film. I can't give it a very high rating as a film, it was a bit muddled at times in exactly what it was trying to convey. But the wooden puppet looked very life-like, his "education" was handled very well, and in the end the message of where life really comes from is very clear. My favorite part, however, was listening to Stevie Wonder sing the songs he wrote for the film.
I bought the DVD to give to my grandchildren, 7 and 10. It will be interesting to see how they react to it.
