Is this the year of Guillermo del Toro? The director managed to convince critics with Nightmare Alley, and did it again with his Pinnochio, an animated film made with the style of stop-motion not to be confused with Robert Zemekis’ Pinnochio, also released in 2022.

14 years old. This is the time that elapsed between the announcement of the project Pinnochio by Guillermo Del Toro and its November 24, 2022 release on Netflix. This Pinnochio has indeed been announced in 2008, with Gris Grimly and Mark Gustafson director and Guillermo del Toro and Matthew Robbins. In 2012, the director announced that he had taken over, then, in 2017, Patrock McHale was announced as co-screenwriter. That same year, Guillermo del Toro declared that he had need funding of 35 million dollars, otherwise the project would be cancelled, 9 years after its announcement. Ultimately, Netflix comes to the rescue of Pinnochiobuying the distribution rights.
Beginning in 1916, Pinnochio starts on the death of Geppetto’s son, victim of a bombardment. The carpenter then plants a pine cone and, years later, he decides to cut down the tree to sculpt a puppet resembling the deceased son. As the story goes, one night, a fairy comes to bring the puppet to life, now named Pinnochio. The latter must learn to live like a little boy but, unfortunately, the first magistrate of the city hears make it a weapon for Benito Mussolini and the fascist army.

Too many emotions for this Pinocchio, it’s complex and sublime. Bravissimo del Toro, says Silypop
Won over by this new vision of Pinocchio, more mature and brutal than the Disney classic. This film is a total success, both artistically and musically. Stop motion works wonders there, adds Carborata
