The movie will be released on September 8, 2022 on Disney Plus and features Tom Hanks in the main role of Geppetto, the Italian woodcarver who builds Pinocchio and raises him as his son.
Chanel won this year’s Benidorm Fest with the song “SloMo”, receiving the biggest support from the Spanish juries and winning the national final, despite receiving less than 4% in the televoting. Chanel did a great job representing her country in Turin, finishing in 3rd place overall and getting Spain their best result since 1995.
Her performance in the Grand Final just became the most watched live performance out of all the 2022 contestants. You can re-watch it here!
