The film will be a retelling of the story of the titular wooden puppet, who battles between his desire for adventure and dreams of being a kind lad.

Del Toro will co-write the script as well as co-direct the film. Pinocchio, directed by Guillermo del Toro, is said to be a more sinister retelling of the classic fairy tale “Pinocchio” written by Carlo Collodi. Additionally, the story features a musical component.

This year, Guillermo del Toro, who won an Oscar for directing, is hard at work filming his newest fairy-tale inspired offering, Pinocchio, which is scheduled to be released on Netflix in December 2022.

There has been a lot of uncertainty between the two projects because Disney will also present its own live-action revival of Pinocchio, which is also set for 2022, in addition to the picture that will be released by Netflix.

Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio Plot

Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio, which is set in Italy during Benito Mussolini’s rule, transforms Carlo Collodi’s original Italian story through del Toro’s recognisable gothic lens. The puppet used by this filmmaker was made from wood from a tree that grew next to a boy’s grave.

Geppetto, the boy’s father, hopes to have a kid back to him, but instead receives Pinocchio, an unfinished, scraggly wooden mannequin who cheerfully introduces a touch of utter mayhem into his new father’s life.

Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio Storyline

What Is 'Guillermo del Toro's Pinocchio' About?

To bring its characters and setting to life, the animated film Pinocchio will employ the stop-motion technique. In the teaser, a 3D landscape that is both realistic and cartoonish, with charm reminiscent of Wes Anderson’s Fantastic Mr. Fox, gives us a peek of the movie’s appearance.

The movie will undoubtedly adopt Gris Grimly’s version of Pinocchio’s visual interpretation, which is incredibly wicked and nasty but still enjoyable, so the adorable whimsy won’t be present throughout.

Pinocchio is a well-known story about a wooden kid created by a lonely woodcarver who longs to become a real boy. However, every rendition of a classic tale requires a twist, as these trailers are quick to point out. The twist is practically the heart of the story in del Toro’s adaptation.

In Pinocchio, we follow Sebastian J. Cricket’s (Ewan McGregor’s) internal journey as the Talking Cricket who resides inside the wooden boy’s very heart. Building on the innate bond between Pinocchio and the Cricket while more closely connecting their respective fates together, this is an intriguing path in which to take the original material.

Since the Cricket is a part of Pinocchio’s heart, it is possible that he may have some opinions on the matter of his growing up to be a boy. The decision also suggests that Cricket’s character will likely receive more attention, elevating him from supporting voice of consciousness to main character status.
