In 1883, Carlo Collodi wrote a children’s book called The Adventures of Pinocchio. Eventually, Walt Disney purchased the rights to make the story into a movie. This was his second animated feature film. His first was Snow White.
The film came out on February 7, 1940 and was the first animated feature film to win an academy award. It won two; one for Best Music- original score and one for Best Music- original song for When You Wish Upon a Star.
