Guillermo Del Toro Gives First Behind The Scenes Look At Netflix's Pinocchio

It looks like 2022 has somehow become the year of Pinocchio. Disney Studios released its remake of its animated classic and director Guillermo del Toro will debut his version of the fable this year as well. Del Toro’s adaptation takes more cues from the original story that’s exponentially darker than what we’ve come to think of when we think of Pinocchio.

During Netflix’s virtual Tudum event, del Toro took fans on a quick tour of Pinocchio’s set and stages, even showing off the different scales of puppets used when doing a scene. He even included a giant Pinocchio head that was used for close-ups. You can watch the clip below.

Del Toro announced Pinocchio back in 2008 and was originally scheduled to be released in 2013, but the project went into development limbo after several years. In January 2017, animator Patrick McHale (Over The Garden Wall) was announced to co-write the script, but the production was soon suspended as no studios were willing to provide financing. The production was revived the following year after being acquired by Netflix.

Based on children’s book author Gris Grimly’s designs from his 2002 edition of the iconic 1883 Italian novel, Pinocchio marks the animated feature film directorial debut of del Toro as well. The film features the voices of Ewan McGregor, David Bradley, Gregory Mann, Finn Wolfhard, Cate Blanchett, John Turturro, Ron Perlman, Tim Blake Nelson, Burn Gorman, Christoph Waltz, and Tilda Swinton.

Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio hits theaters in November, then Netflix in December.
