Netflix is really trying to put more and more content on their streaming platform and this time they will be making a Pinocchio movie. The director for the animated movie will be Guillermo del Toro, This will be Guillermo’s first time directing an animated movie.
According to this source, Pinocchio will be set during the 1930s in Italy and the production will begin this fall. The last Pinocchio movie I watched was the live action one that came out in 1996, But everyone has watched or when thinking about Pinocchio they think about the 1940 animated film. Guillermo tells Variety, “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.”
I am interested in almost everything Guillermo del Toro does on film because he has done films like Pans Labyrinth, Hellboy, Pacific Rim, and Blade II. Now Guillermo del Toro will be tackling an animated film that will be Pinocchio for Netflix. Yall interested in a Pinocchio movie directed by Guillermo del Toro?
