The adaptation has received yet another wave of criticism from movie lovers.

The year 2022 has marked not one but two Pinocchio movie adaptations, and one of them, done by Disney Plus, seems to be under scrutiny by fans.

Before another adaptation from Netflix hits theaters in November and then gets a digital release on December 9, 2022, Disney Plus has already released its 'Pinocchio' on September 8. However, critics were quick to lambast it as "mediocre madness", arguing that it misses "the entire point of the original."

"Unsurprisingly, Disney's remake of Pinocchio is an uninspired dumpster fire. Like its version of Pleasure Island has root beer instead of ACTUAL beer which DEFEATS THE POINT of the original scene. Skip this one folks, just wait for Del Toro's adaptation instead," YouTube critic Saberspark said.

Netflix has indeed secured Guillermo del Toro for its Pinocchio adaptation – a fact that had more people excited for this movie than for the Disney Plus endeavor, which is spearheaded by Robert Zemeckis.

Zemeckis' take on Pinocchio, according to fans, has "ruined the great cartoon classic". Particularly, people seem to be frustrated with how "cheap" the movie looks, and some fans are especially disappointed with the ending – which we are not going to spoil if you still intend to give the Disney Plus adaptation a watch.

"Robert Zemeckis' #PINOCCHIO is terrible. An absolute low point for Disney's CG remake roster. Messy, dull & aesthetically unappealing, it's one of the worst films of the year & acts as an uninspired affront to what the animators created with the 1940 original," movie critic Courtney Howard tweeted.

Currently streaming on Disney Plus, 'Pinocchio' was created by Zemeckis and Chris Weitz. It is an adaptation of Walt Disney's 1940 animated movie, which is considered a classic and is based on the iconic 1883 Italian book 'The Adventures of Pinocchio', by Carlo Collodi.
