Netflix releases first trailer for Guillermo del Toro's 'Pinocchio'

The classic children's story written in 1883 by Carlo Collodi will be in the hands of Guillermo del Toro and Netflix.

The trailer for the new film by Mexican Guillermo del Toro was already released this Monday from Netflix, which shared the first images of what will be the reinvention of the classic Pinocchio tale.

The classic children’s story written in 1883 by Carlo Collodi will be in the hands of Guillermo del Toro and Netflix, and it is expected to be released in 2022 with a great cast in the voice section.


The project will use the stop motion technique and in the preview with the first images it can be seen that it is a fresh project with the style of the filmmaker born in Jalisco.

The ambitious project will see a never-before-seen version of the wooden puppet magically come to life to mend the heart of a grieving woodcarver named Geppetto.

Using the stop motion technique, ‘Pinocchio’ will be a musical that, as previously announced, will be directed by Guillermo Del Toro and Mark Gustafson. This new fantasy chapter will follow Pinocchio through the adventures he will have to go through to find out his place in the world.

‘Pinocchio’ will arrive on Netflix next December. To publicize the news, the first teaser was presented where you can see the character of Sebastián J Grillo who will be in charge of narrating the story.

The character emphasizes that the story will be different from the one we all think we know. With the first preview of ‘Pinocchio’ we can verify the quality of the production and the skill of stop motion.

The film is expected to be one of Netflix’s biggest titles to close out in 2022. In addition to facing talented directors, ‘Pinocchio’ also boasts an exceptional cast.

Ewan McGregor as Jiminy Cricket, David Bradley as Geppetto and the introduction of Gregory Mann as Pinocchio, as well as Finn Wolfhard, Cate Blanchett, John Turturro, Ron Perlman, Tim Blake Nelson, Burn Gorman, Christoph Waltz and Tilda Swinton will make the film shine with their voices.

The exact date of the December premiere has not yet been specified. As the months go by, it is expected to have this and more details, as well as to be able to see the trailers where “Pinocchio”, the central character of the plot, would debut.
