Pinocchio | Netflix - stop motion musical - Guillermo Del Toro

Postby Blue Jackets » Tue Oct 23, 2018 6:31 am

About time. This thread from 2016 mentioned it.

Guillermo del Toro is set to make his animated feature film directing debut. Del Toro has received the green light from Netflix to film “Pinocchio,” a stop motion musical version of the classic children’s tale about a puppet who wants to be a real live boy. He will write and produce the film in addition to directing it.

The film will be set in Italy during the 1930s, a particularly fraught historical moment and a time when fascism was on the rise and Benito Mussolini was consolidating control of the country. Production on “Pinocchio” will begin this fall. Del Toro previously set “The Devil’s Backbone” and “Pan’s Labyrinth” against a totalitarian backdrop, although he placed those stories in Franco’s Spain.

I'm confused if Disney is still involved or not, they were back in 2016. I can't imagine they are if it is going to Netflix and not their own service. One thing is for sure, this is going to be weird.
