Netflix has released the first trailer for Guillermo del Toro’s forthcoming stop-motion adaptation of Pinocchio.

Guillermo del Toro’s stop-motion version of Pinocchio is due to arrive on Netflix later this year and now the teaser trailer has arrived to give us an insight of what to expect from the highly-anticipated adaptation.

We already know that del Toro has chosen to ground the fairy tale in the real world, using a World War II setting that has proven to be creatively fertile ground for del Toro in the past. Celebrated films of del Toro’s such as Pan’s Labyrinth and The Devil’s Backbone have previously examined the impact of fascism upon the world, something Pinocchio looks set to further, with this adaptation taking place in pre-World War II Italy where fascism is on the rise.

The production has been co-directed by The PJs’ Mark Gustafson, whilst the voice cast is deeply impressive with the likes of Gregory Mann, Ewan McGregor, David Bradley, Finn Wolfhard, Cate Blanchett, John Turturro, Ron Perlman, Christoph Waltz, and Tilda Swinton all featuring. The film is set to release on Netflix in December but ahead of that date, you can catch the trailer below.
