Based on the 1883 Italian children's novel The Adventures of Pinocchio by Carlo Collodi, Walt Disney's Pinocchio was the second animated feature film produced by his studio following his first animated success Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937). The film soon became the first animated feature to win a competitive Academy Award — winning two for Best Music, Original Score and for Best Music, Original Song for "When You Wish Upon a Star". Pinocchio was initially a box office bomb, due to World War II cutting off the European and Asian markets overseas, but eventually made a profit in its 1945 reissue. It is now considered one of the greatest animated films ever made.
