As Marvel brags about its next 30 years of projects, another fantastical universe is quietly taking hold of contemporary cinema. Hollywood’s biggest names – Tom Hanks, Guillermo del Toro, Cate Blanchett, Pauly Shore – are all in cahoots: The industry won’t stop until all entertainment revolves around a puppet/human/ nightmare. It won’t be long before the whole world rides the Pinocchio vague.
Oscar-winning legend Guillermo del Toro has released the trailer for his new Netflix stop-motion animated film, Pinocchio, which is due out later this year. In the clip, Ewan McGregor’s sage Sebastian J. Cricket (maybe a riff on Jiminy, if that J stands for what I think he means) introduces us to the story of the wooden boy.
