Pinocchio was Disney’s second full length feature film. Released in 1940 following the successful Snow White. Although Pinocchio was not an box office hit with its first release ( costing twice as much as Snow White, and making only half as much as it’s production costs) Pinocchio managed to win two Academy Awards for Best Original Song ( with “When You Wish Upon a Star” which would go on to be the staple song for Disney) and for Best Original Score.
