Can you watch a blu-ray disc on regular dvd player

can you watch a blu-ray disc on regular dvd player. I have a 2 year old DVD player, nothing fancy. I want to buy Pinocchio for the grandkids and they, like everyone else, will be going to blu-ray in future - but no one has a blu-ray player now. can we still view the movie on my old dvd player?
