Pinocchio: Trailer Talk

Pinocchio: Trailer Talk

Even though Disney are adding ‘Pinocchio’ to their never-ending list of live action remakes, the adaptation I’m looking forward to is Guillermo Del Toro’s. Produced by Netflix and The Jim Henson Company, most famous for The Muppets, the film has faced a lot of production and development issues and was originally slated to release in 2013/2014. Despite this, I have faith in Del Toro’s work, especially after ‘The Shape of Water’ and even ‘Pacific Rim’, so it’s a relief to finally see a trailer.

‘Guillermo Del Toro’s Pinocchio’ follows a grieving woodcarver named Geppetto who creates a wooden boy that comes to life and explores the world around him.

Despite the numerous adaptations, this one feels fresh given the addition of the reasoning behind the boy’s creation. It looks heart-warming and beautiful too, due to the designs of the characters and scenery. However, it also feels special because of the method used to bring this to life. Stop motion animation isn’t an artform that’s used a lot nowadays which is a shame. While it is time consuming, it gives its film or show a unique look that can’t be replicated by CGI. So, it’s also wonderful to see this adaptation belong to the stop motion genre. 

Overall, move over Disney, because this is the adaptation of ‘Pinocchio’ that I’m interested in. It looks heart-warming and vibrant, and I will always support a stop motion film because it’s a beautiful artform that’s rarely used. Plus, the voice cast looks fantastic, with voices of Ewan McGregor (Obi-Wan Kenobi), Ron Perlman (Hellboy) and Finn Wolfhard (Stranger Things) involved to name a few. Despite the delays the film received, this looks fantastic.
