'Pinocchio': Trailer, Cast, and Everything We Know So Far Guillermo Del Toros ...

The Adventures of Pinocchio, originally written by Carlo Collodi, has been adapted for stage and screen in many ways, most famously, Disney's 1940 animated musical version.

Guillermo Del Toro, well-known for fusing horror with fairy tales, said in 2008 that he was working on a darker version of Pinocchio. He said no individual character in history has had such a close connection to me as Pinocchio, and that he has wanted to produce this film for as long as he can remember.

Pinocchio will be Del Toros' first feature film in animation, joining his 11 other feature films, including Hellboy, Pans Labyrinth, Crimson Peak, and Nightmare Alley. He released several pieces of character concept art in February 2012, including the designs for Pinocchio, Geppetto, The Talking Cricket, Mangiafuoco (the puppet master) and the Fox and the Cat.

Benjamin Evan Ainsworth will play the titular character in the upcoming Disney live-action remake, which will be available on Disney+ on September 8th, 2022.

The Del Toros adaptation was originally scheduled to be released in 2013 or 2014, but the project was postponed. In 2017, Patrick McHale (Adventure Time) was announced as the screenplay's co-writer, causing the budgetary burden to increase, making it difficult to attract studios to finance production.

Netflix gave Guillermo Del Toro the go light when they purchased production rights in 2018. This article will give you all the latest information regarding the cast, trailer, development, and release dates.

Whats Guillermo Del Toro's Pinocchio About?

A wooden marionette puppet reimagines his own younger brother in Fascist Italy in the 1930s. He wants to be a real boy and his father, a poor woodcarver named Geppetto, sees Pinocchio as a replacement for his own dying son. He is impulsive and unruly, which gets him into trouble as he explores his world.

Without seeing it for ourselves, this adaptation has been described as a dark and twisted retelling of the story, so it's difficult to predict how big a shift it will take from the novel or Disney version. The cast section below should give you an idea of what to anticipate, as the characters from the novel are not always depicted in the Disney version.

Is There a Trailer for Guillermo Del Toro's Pinocchio?

Yes, Netflix released the official trailer on July 27. The trailer introduces us to Gepetto, Pinocchio, and many of the other characters that Pinocchio encounters during his adventures.

Who Is Casting Guillermo Del Toro's Pinocchio?

Gregory Mann, best known for his role as Young Eli in The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, will take on the role of Pinocchio in this year's feature film.

David Bradley will reprise his role as Geppetto in HBO's hit series Game of Thrones. Bradley is best known for his roles as Argus Filch in the Harry Potter films as well as the lecherous Lord Walder Frey.

Sebastian J. Cricket will be played by Ewan McGregor (Obi-Wan Kenobi) who was never assigned by the Blue Fairy to be Pinnochios external conscience in the novel. This character is often referred to as The Talking Cricket.

Count Volpe is an Italian word for fox, which has never been a positive influence on the young and impressionable Pinocchio. Waltz is well-known for his nasty roles, such as Col. Hans Landa in Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds.

Tilda Swinton (Suspiria) will play the role of the Fairy with Turquoise Hair in the novel, which is once again different from Disney's Blue Fairy. Instead of being the one to grant Geppetto's wish and promising to make Pinocchioa a real boy if he behaves himself, the Fairy with Turquoise hair appears to Pinocchio's adventures to admonish him for misbehaving.

Finn Wolfhard, who plays Candlewick in the Disney version, is considered a problemmaker who befriends Pinocchio and leads him into dangerous situations.

The Podesta, a character that has not been mentioned in either the novel or the Disney adaptation, will be played by Ron Perlman. Podesta was used in Fascist Italy as a name.

Cate Blanchett will also introduce a new character in this film, Sprezzatura the Monkey, although there are several animal characters in the novel.

Tim Blake Nelson (The Ballad of Buster Scruggs), John Turturro (Severance), and Burn Gorman (Enola Holmes) are also included in the cast list. As of now, their roles and character names are unspecified.

Daniel Radcliffe (The Lost City), Tom Waits (Seven Psychopaths) and Christopher Walken (Severance) were considered for roles, but they were ultimately rejected. Radcliffe continued to work on the project as an executive producer.

When Will Guillermo Del Toro's Pinocchio Arrive?

The Netflix premiere of Pinocchio will be available in November, but otherwise, you will have to wait until December to watch the film.

Pinocchio is finally on the market after all of its production and development difficulties since 2008. If you are the impatient type, you can make a wish on a star to speed up the process.
