Jiminy Cricket! Pinocchio is about to become a real real boy.

The mischievous but lovable marionette will be the next classic character to get the live-action treatment from Disney, following the box office success of Cinderella and Maleficent.

Voice of Disney's Pinocchio, Actor Dick Jones, Dies

The title star’s conscience may have been Jiminy Cricket, but his voice in the 1940 Walt Disney animated feature Pinocchio belonged to 10-year-old Dick Jones, who made millions of fellow youngsters cry when his screen character was reunited with his father and then turned into a real boy.
