Blu-ray: a three-person commentary with interview, archive and concept materials overlaid on screen.
The biggest problem with doing a commentary for Pinocchio is that the film is too good; you simply can’t pay attention to the commentary because the movie, even when it’s being spoken over and hidden behind information windows, keeps dragging you into it and enveloping you. There’s enough information and insight for the commentary to be consistently interesting – especially from Eric Goldberg – and the concept art and overlaid interview footage is the best way of seeing. Perhaps the most amazing reveal was that the movie was done in just over two years, as opposed to four years for Snow White and most modern animations.
