Pinocchio: The Disney Epic

Out Feb. 17, 2015

In 2015 Disney will be celebrating the 75th anniversary of Pinocchio, Walt’s second and most critically acclaimed feature film. This book, created in conjunction with the Walt Disney Family Foundation, presents an in-depth exploration of the making of the film, with never-before-published art and behind-the-scenes stories from the inner workings of the Golden Age of Animation.

In 1940, Walt Disney released his second feature film: Pinocchio, based on Carlo Collodi’s 1883 Italian children’s novel. It became the first animated feature to win a competitive Academy Award (in fact, it won two), and is now considered one of the finest Disney films ever made, even earning a place on the roster of the National Film Registry.

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. In this book, we learn everything from the story changes to the animators’ personalities to the reason the iconic Jiminy Cricket almost didn’t make it in the film, alongside over 300 photographs, illustrations, and concept sketches, many never before available to the public.

Join for the wild, legendary ride that was the making of Pinocchio.
