Pinocchio is on the rise. After a remake by Matteo Garrone which ended its run directly on Amazon Prime Video and a live action home remake by Robert Zemeckis for Disney, Guillermo del Toro will also offer his own cinematic version of the novel The Adventures of Pinocchio, written in 1881 by Carlo Collodi and brought to the screen for the first time by the big-eared studio in 1940. If the story of the little wooden man is known to everyone, the stop motion adaptation thought up by Del Toro will be that of a “story you think you know but you don’t”. Dark and political, it will take place in the fascist Italy of the 1930s, under the reign of Mussolini. Here is the official trailer unveiled today by Netflix: The tale will be narrated by Ewan McGregor, who lends his voice to Sebastian J. Cricket, alongside Gregory Mann as Pinocchio and David Bradley as Geppetto. Finn Wolfhard, Cate Blanchett, John Turturro, Ron Perlman, Tim Blake Nelson, Burn Gorman, Christoph Waltz and Tilda Swinton complete the voice cast for the film, which will premiere on Netflix in December 2022.
