In today’s second edition of pics from upcoming Guillermo del Toro films we have some shots from Pinocchio, which you can see below. They come from this week’s Entertainment Weekly via Dread Central.
The pics show off the visual flare we’ve come to expect from del Toro’s films.

Del Toro will co-direct Pinocchio with Mark Gustafson. The film is a stop-motion animated 3D version of Carlo Collodi’s classic tale.






How would you compare your vision of the Pinocchio tale with that of the Disney version?
Well, the Disney version is one of my favorite animated movies of all time. What I’m going for is a PG-13 — more adolescent, more teenage. I hesitate to say just darker, because it’s not just darker. It is a tale that is adapted to a more complex reality, more complex ethical questions. It’s more a tale for youth than a tale for just kids.

Could be interesting to see his take on it. I like a lot of his movies but I'm not sure I'm big on those character designs personally.

The Disney version is for more than just kids.

Interesting that his Pinnochio truly resembles a marionette and would never be mistaken for a real boy.

I like the look of Pinnochio.
