Watch the first new teaser for Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio

With his latest film Nightmare Alley making its arrival in cinemas just this weekend, Guillermo del Toro is already offering a glimpse at his next project – an adaptation of Pinocchio – with the first teaser trailer for his next film making its debut online. Click below to watch…

 

 


Although the clip doesn’t offer a look at Pinocchio himself, we are introduced to one Sebastian J. Cricket, voiced by Ewan McGregor, who narrates the new teaser. Fans of the Disney version may remember the character as Jiminy Cricket, although del Toro has suggested that his version of the film will be more closely based on the original novel by Carlo Collodi than its Disney counterpart, for which the character was largely rewritten.

Given the full title of Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio, the film’s impressive cast also includes Cate Blanchett, Tilda Swinton, Christoph Waltz, Finn Wolfhard and John Turturro, among many others, and is due to make its Netflix debut in December 2022.
