Sad Disney: “Pinocchio”

In the Disney film Pinocchio, we are presented with a flawed, yet loveable wooden boy who must prove himself in order to become real. Things are further complicated by the fact that it is Gepetto’s wish and not his, though he truly wants to do right by his “father.”

Since we’re there from the beginning when Gepetto makes his wish and we see how nice and kind he is, we are invested in seeing his wish come true. Therefore the scene in which Gepetto believes his ‘little wooden head’ has died packs a huge wallop.
