After a long wait, Netflix released a trailer giving a look at Guillermo Del Toro’s Pinocchio in all its stop-motion glory.
We have been waiting a long time to see this movie, and we finally got an official full peek at the trailer today, combining the classic stop-motion wonder seen in films like Coraline with the creepy edge that Guillermo Del Toro is known for. Sadly, we will need to wait until December to see how it all comes together, but from the looks of things, the story is in good hands.
This fantastic trailer for Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio makes it clear that this is going to be one of the most beautiful movies of 2022. Not only does del Toro himself co-direct (with stop-motion veteran Mark Gustafson), but he was also able to co-write with Patrick McHale of Adventure Time fame. The film also brings some amazing voice talent to the film with actors like Ewan McGregor, Cate Blanchett, Finn Wolfhard and Tilda Swinton. The animation for this film is absolutely stunning, and hopefully it will keep up this quality for the full runtime.
“Academy Award-winning filmmaker Guillermo del Toro reinvents Carlo Collodi’s classic tale of the wooden marionette who is magically brought to life in order to mend the heart of a grieving woodcarver named Geppetto. This whimsical, stop-motion film directed by Guillermo del Toro and Mark Gustafson follows the mischievous and disobedient adventures of Pinocchio in his pursuit of a place in the world.”Netflix
