Next month, Netflix will release “Guillermo Del Toro’s Pinocchio,” an adaptation of timeless hits.
The official trailer for Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio debuted on Wednesday, a week before the film’s December 9 Netflix debut following a limited theatrical release.
The film’s trailer, which adapts the beloved Carlo Collodi fairy tale and places it in Mussolini’s Italy, is blatantly influenced by del Toro. With its tale revisions, creatures with overtones of Pan’s Labyrinth, and carnival scenes that would have felt at home in Nightmare Alley, the stop-motion animation, which he co-directed with Mark Gustafson, lends itself to the Oscar-winning director’s eye for detail.
Everything is necessary for the plot, which has lonesome Geppetto, who is distraught after losing his kid, carve a new boy out of wood who is then miraculously brought to life. Gregory Mann portrays Pinocchio, and David Bradley provides the voice of Geppetto. The narration was performed by Jiminy Cricket’s voice actor, Ewan McGregor.

The movie’s screenplay was written by Adventure Time’s Patrick McHale, and it was made by del Toro, Lisa Henson, Gary Ungar, Alex Bulkley, and Corey Campodonico.
Since having its world premiere at the BFI London Film Festival last month (see Deadline’s review here), Pinocchio has been screening at film festivals.
