NETFLIX has released a new teaser for filmmaker Guillermo del Toro’s animated cinematic interpretation of the classic Pinocchio story.
The narrator, Cricket (Ewan McGregor) says at the start of the trailer, “I want to tell you a story. It’s a story you might think you know, but you don’t – the story of the wooden boy. The trailer shows footage of Gepetto (David Bradley), a lone lumberjack, creating Pinocchio (Gregory Mann) and the puppet boy’s journey alongside his creator.
Finn Wolfhard, John Turturro, Cate Blanchett, Ron Perlman, Tim Blake Nelson, Tilda Swinton, Christoph Waltz and Burn Gorman round out the voice cast for the animated feature, which will be released in December.
For years, the filmmaker has said portraying Pinocchio’s story was a passion project for him, and Pinocchio marks del Toro’s first step into animation.
