p3k-dvd-uk (26k image)In the surprise announcement of the moment, Granada Ventures in the UK will release the Filmax Animation feature Pinocchio 3000 on home video and DVD this February 7. Previously the film was expected to have found a distributor and made a theatrical run, as in its native Spain, and has been mooted in the US. P3K retells the classic story in an updated version, complete with futuristic settings (this time, Pinocchio is a robotic boy) and CGI animation. The English-language dub features the voices of Howie Mandel, Malcolm McDowall and Whoopi Goldberg; the DVD doesn’t look like it includes any special features and will be pan-and-scanned to 4:3 format.
