Synopsis: In 1940, Walt Disney released his second feature film: Pinocchio, based on Carlo Collodi?s 1883 Italian children?s novel. The film was groundbreaking: it pioneered the latest animation and sound technology of the era, and established a blueprint for Disney filmmaking that remains intact today. It became the first animated feature to win a competitive Academy Award® (in fact, it won two), and earned a place on the roster of the National Film Registry. Pinocchio?s crucial role has endured decades, given its rare 100% rating on the film website Rotten Tomatoes and the lively discourse that continues to surround the film today.

To celebrate the film?s 75th anniversary this year, author J.B. Kaufman presents a complete history of the making of Pinocchio, from source material to rerelease. Pinocchio, published in partnership with the Walt Disney Family Foundation and the Walt Disney Family Museum, is an in-depth exploration of the making of the film.

Academy Award-winning animator and film historian John Canemaker says of Pinocchio: ?In great detail, J. B. Kaufman reveals the struggles, triumphs and disappointments encountered by Disney and his staff during the creation of this sacred monster of a film. Woven here is a once-upon-a-time story sure to fascinate and inform readers, an exciting adventure into the inner workings of a one-of-a kind studio and team at its creative peak.?

Go behind to the scenes with stories of the inner workings of the Golden Age of Animation, the animators? personalities and story changes like why Jiminy Cricket?s character almost got left on the cutting room floor. Over 300 photographs, illustrations and concept sketches ? many of which are available for the very first time ? accompany the story behind the story.

Become a part of the wild, legendary ride that was the making of  Pinocchio.

In 1940, Walt Disney released his second feature film: Pinocchio, based on Carlo Collodi?s 1883 Italian children?s novel.

To celebrate the film?s 75th anniversary, J.B. Kaufman?author of The Fairest One of All: The Making of Walt Disney's Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs?presents a complete history of the making of Pinocchio, from source material to rerelease. The film was groundbreaking in many areas, from achievements in animation and sound effects to establishing a pattern for Disney filmmaking that survives to this day.
