As we mentioned in our full preview for Guillermo del Toro’s stop motion animated Pinocchio, the upcoming Netflix movie draws inspiration from Gris Grimly’s 2002 graphic novel of the same name. As you can see from the novel’s artwork, this is a much darker take on the traditional tale.
Like the classic Disney animation, del Toro’s Pinocchio will be a musical. But you can forget about singing birdies and a puppetry chorus: the music for this one is being created by British rock legend, Nick Cave.
Here’s what del Toro has said about the movie so far:
“It’s not a Pinocchio for all the family. Of course [it’s a political film]. Pinocchio during the rise of Mussolini, do the math. A puppet during the rise of fascism.”
Fans of del Toro will know that this movie has been a long while in the making, due to the time-consuming nature of stop motion animation. The movie has been in the works since 2015.
Some really big names have lent their voices to this movie, too. The cast includes Tilda Swinton, Ewan McGregor, Christoph Waltz, Cate Blanchett, and John Turturro. Newcomer Gregory Mann voices the boy-puppet himself, and Stranger Things star Finn Wolfhard lends his talent too.
