GUILLERMO DEL TORO’S PINOCCHIO | Official Trailer | Netflix

With his Pinocchio, del Toro has put together a dynamite cast and really pulled some more sinister themes and scenes from the original Pinocchio book by Carlo Collodi. The character “dies,” is reborn, gets used, abused, and his entire existence is predicated on Geppetto’s unimaginable grief. Nope, this is not your parent’s Pinocchio. This is not a Disney Pinocchio. This is Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio and when you watch it, you better have a box of tissues.


Featuring the voices of Ewan McGregor, Tilda Swinton, Christoph Waltz, Finn Wolfhard, Cate Blanchett, John Turturro, Ron Perlman, and Tim Blake Nelson, along with Gregory Mann as Pinocchio and David Bradley as Geppetto, Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio will be on Netflix December 9.
