Published Oct 22, 2018Following his Oscar-winning movie about a woman that has sex with a fishman, Guillermo del Toro continues to line up projects with Netflix. Up next, he's announced a stop-motion Pinocchio movie.
While we'll have to wait and see just how horny del Toro's Pinocchio is, we do know that it will be a feature featuring puppets from the people who made Corpse Bride.
Del Toro shared the following statement about the project:
No art form has influenced my life and my work more than animation and no single character in history has had as deep of a personal connection to me as Pinocchio. In our story, Pinocchio is an innocent soul with an uncaring father who gets lost in a world he cannot comprehend. He embarks on an extraordinary journey that leaves him with a deep understanding of his father and the real world. I've wanted to make this movie for as long as I can remember. After the incredible experience we have had on Trollhunters, I am grateful that the talented team at Netflix is giving me the opportunity of a lifetime to introduce audiences everywhere to my version of this strange puppet-turned-real-boy.
Netflix's Pinocchio will be co-produced by del Toro, the Jim Henson Company and ShadowMachine.
