"Pinocchio" soared through the roof in its first official week in the video stores and it even brought along many of its Disney friends for the ride.
Although not yet in the top 25, Disney's "Pinocchio" managed to muscle its way into the Daily Variety/VideoScan sell-through data even before its March 23 official release date.
The sell-through scene swirled last week as six new Disney titles cracked the top 25 and overall sales saw the biggest week-to-week jump all year.
