Pinocchio (1940) is one of those animated movies that we pretty much all grew up on. And while we live in the age of live-action remakes, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that Pinocchio will get the same treatment. Now it should be mentioned that Pinocchio has gotten the live-action treatment before, even as recently as 2019. But, a new remake is getting a different spin with Guillermo del Toro, who will helm an upcoming stop-motion animated film. So, it’s a remake, but not live-action and is based on the Gris Grimly rendition. The upcoming film will be released on Netflix in 2021.
There’s now new news released in regards to del Toro’s film. Such as, the amazing Ewan McGregor revealing he’s voicing Jiminy Cricket in the upcoming Pinocchio.
