Since Guillermo del Toro announced that he was working on a new Pinocchio movie in 2008, everyone is desperately waiting for the movie to release. It is an American dark fantasy stop motion animated musical movie. It is based on the 1883 novel, The adventures of Pinocchio. The film is a debut for Guillermo del Toro as a director.

There has been numerous adaption on the classic Pinocchio story, but after seeing the development in the latest upcoming movie, we can safely say that this is not going to be a classic soft Pinocchio movie. The movie is produced by ShadowMachine and The Jim Henson Company. The movie will be released globally on Netflix.  The movie is produced by Guillermo del Toro, Lisa Henson, Alexander Bulkley, Corey Campodonico, and Gary Ungar.

The movie will be based on the classic Pinocchio story, all set in Fascist Italy in the 1930s. In this, a wooden doll comes to life and, dreams to transform into a real boy really soon. Pinocchio turns out to be a mischievous and troubling boy who later on learns his lesson.

The movie will have a darker approach than normal Disney movies. The movie is also said to have some interesting plot twists that would keep the audience glued to their chairs until the very end. There are no leaks in the plot other than the classic fairy tale we all have already heard numerous times. But the movie is definitely going to be much more than a classic fairy tale story.

Updates on Pinocchio

The shooting for the movie started on 31st January 2020 in Guadalajara in Mexico and Portland, Oregon. The production and everything related to it has to put on a halt after COVID pandemic disturbed everything.

The shooting was supposed to take 5 months to get over, and since it has stopped, for now, we can expect some delay in the release of the movie Pinocchio. When it will release, it is quite uncertain as the production itself isn’t completed.
