Idea of Pinocchio 2022 by Guillermo del Toro
This Pinocchio, like previous Del Toro creations, appears darker than the Disney-made rendition of the figure. This is a good take on the stories as they cater to adult audiences too.
As this director, Guillermo del Toro, usually provides a slightly spooky vibe before melting the heart, his perspective on the living puppet is gothic. This is a nice refreshing take on the previously made children’s fairytale stories. Here’s what he has to say about his likes of Vanity Fair.
“I’ve always been very intrigued by the links between Pinocchio and Frankenstein. They are both about a child that is thrown into the world. They are both created by a father who then expects them to figure out what’s good, what’s bad, the ethics, the morals, love, life, and essentials, on their own. I think that was, for me, childhood. You had to figure it out with your very limited experience.”
According to the video, which you can view above, it will be a visual show. With dazzling animation that transforms not only Pinocchio but all of the characters, into wooden sculptures. The beautiful color palette with crisp scenery also adds to the screen a lot so this will surely be a treat to watch.
The movie Pinocchio 2022 is expected to release in November. There is no solid date as of now but it will surely be in November of 2022. This can be a nice gift to watch with family in winter holidays, or maybe too dark to not. Let’s wait and see how will it be like.
