netflix has released a new teaser trailer for the animated cinematic version of the classic Pinocchio story directed by Guillermo del Toro.
Narrator Cricket (Ewan McGregor) says at the beginning of the trailer, “I want to tell you a story. This is the story you might think you know, but you don’t – the story of the wooden boy.” The trailer shows footage of Geppetto (David Bradley), a lone lumberjack, creating Pinocchio (Gregory Mann), as well as the puppet boy’s journey with his creator.
Finn Wolfhard, John Turturro, Cate Blanchett, Ron Perlman, Tim Blake Nelson, Tilda Swinton, Christoph Waltz and Burn Gorman are completing voiceovers for the animated film, which will release in December.
For years, the director has stated that portraying the story of Pinocchio was a passion project for him, and Pinocchio marks del Toro’s first foray into animation.
