Del Toro’s Pinocchio Movie Trailer Released


Earlier today, Netflix officially released Guillermo Del Toro’s Pinocchio Movie trailer. In the film, David Bradley plays the kind father, Geppetto, who creates a wooden boy after losing his real son. The trailer shows Geppetto’s fatherly love and desire to be a father again. Eventually, this dream comes true after Pinocchio, the puppet, comes to life. Gregory Mann voices the title character of the film, which is an adaptation of the much-loved fairy tale. Unlike other adaptations, this film is a musical and stop-motion animation.

During the trailer, we heard Geppetto say to his son, “People are sometimes afraid of things they don’t know.” Naturally, this scene probably occurs after the citizens of the town reacted negatively upon seeing Pinocchio for the first time. Also, it is good to show how much Geppetto loves his wooden son. He wants him to succeed and not be afraid of the outside world.

Plus, Guillermo’s trailer Del Toro’s Pinocchio Movie gives us an idea of ​​some of Pinocchio’s adventures in the film. He is seen struggling in a boat, begging his father for help. We also see many talking animals and other characters undergoing wonderful transformations.

This film is one of the few Pinocchio adaptations, since Disney released a live-action version a few months ago. However, even though the style may be different, each adaptation contains the same message about the power of love.
