Disney’s quest to make a live-action Pinocchio remake has moved one step closer to reality as The Hollywood Reporter has told us that the movie now has a director. Paul King, of Paddington fame, is reportedly on board to direct the Disney film.

Production of the live-action remake of the 1940 animated Disney classic is slated to begin this fall. No release date has been announced yet.

I am founder and editor of DisneyNews.us. My passion for all things Disney goes pretty far back but was deepened by two semi-recent developments:1) The birth of my son (who is now 7 years old and can't get enough Disney); and 2) Disney’s purchase of Lucasfilm/Star Wars (did I mention I was a super Star Wars geek?)I recently came to the realization that I spent a significant portion of my day reading articles about Disney and watching it with my son, so it only made sense that I would start sharing some of what I read and see and building a little community around it.Other interests include Disney, Sports, 80's Nostalgia, LEGO, Star Wars and Tech Gadgets.
