Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio Gets First Teaser, Netflix Reveals December 2022 Release
Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio will finally be arriving at the end of this year in December. Netflix revealed the first teaser for the stop-motion musical featuring Jiminy Cricket. Sure, it’s a brief video that doesn’t give too much insight into how this will differ from other adaptations of the beloved story, but it sure is beautiful.
Mark Gustafson (animation director on Fantastic Mr. Fox) and del Toro co-direct the upcoming movie, which features Ewan McGregor (Birds of Prey) as Cricket, David Bradley (The World’s End) as Geppetto, and Gregory Mann as Pinocchio. Check out the video below.
Pinocchio will also have a solid supporting cast: Finn Wolfhard, Cate Blanchett, John Turturro, Ron Perlman, Tim Blake Nelson, Burn Gorman, Christoph Waltz, and Tilda Swinton.
