Pinocchio is 2002 film adaptation of Carlo Collodi's book The Adventures of Pinocchio directed by and starring (in the title role) Roberto Benigni.
- Adapted Out: Maestro Antonio was cut from the film and instead Geppetto finds the piece of wood first.
- Composite Character: The Talking Cricket was a fusion of some animals Pinocchio found in the book.
- Compressed Adaptation: Pinocchio being trapped on the farm is not his own badass moment, but a problem for dropping school again.
- Lost in Imitation: The Cricket is prominent like in the Disney version and the animals are disguised humans like Luigi Comencini's version.
