Netflix publishes the trailer for Pinocchio, the film by Guillermo del Toro

Director Guillermo del Toro releases the first official trailer for Pinocchio, the animated film he has directed for Netflix.

Many years ago we knew that William of the Bull, which has just released in theaters the remake of the classic the alley of lost souls, was behind an animated adaptation of Pinocchio. The filmmaker has been behind this adaptation for a long time and in the end it has been Netflix the one who has decided to take it forward. The great streaming platform has made his dream of creating his vision come true: a musical of the classic tale, animated in stop motion. We are talking about almost a decade of work that has finally materialized in the following way:

What do you think of the trailer? Pinocchio, Guillermo del Toro’s Netflix movie? The teaser presents us with a new version of Jiminy Cricket, called here Sebastian J Cricket. This character will be played by the voice of Ewan McGregor, whom we will soon see in the series of starwars from Obi-Wan Kenobi in Disney Plus. In the trailer we hear Jiminy Cricket say that he wants to tell us a story and that it is “a story that you may think you know, but you really don’t.” What is he referring to?

The story is much darker than what Disney showed us back in the day

The classic animated adaptation of waltdisney had a considerably brighter tone than the novel by Carlo Collodi, in which the protagonist wooden boy ended up killing Jiminy Cricket, to give an example of the “stick” that was going. It is interesting to see how much of that original story of Pinocchio, the one from the novel, has selected Guillermo del Toro to make his movie on Netflix.
