Guillermo del Toro’s upcoming stop-motion musical adaptation of Pinocchio is coming to Netflix in December, ad the streaming service shared a short teaser trailer for the animated feature. Pinocchio is based on the Carlo Collodi children’s novel The Adventures of Pinocchio, which follows a wooden puppet who comes to life.
Ewan McGregor voices Sebastian J. Cricket in the clip, who tells audiences that he lived inside the heart of the wooden boy before a logo for the film appears. David Bradley as Geppetto and Gregory Mann as Pinocchio also star along with Cate Blanchett, Finn Wolfhard, Ron Perlman John Turturro, Tim Blake Nelson, Burn Gorman, Christoph Waltz and Tilda Swinton.
Disney is also planning a live-action adaptation of Pinocchio based on its classic 1940 animated film of the same name. Tom Hanks, Cynthia Erivo and Luke Evans are set to star in the 2022 film with Benjamin Evan Ainsworth, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Keegan-Michael Key and Lorraine Bracco providing voices.
