Based on the classic Carlo Collodi tale, the feature follows the extraordinary journey of a wooden boy magically brought to life by a father’s wish. Set during the rise of Fascism in Mussolini’s Italy, del Toro’s Pinocchio is a story of love and disobedience as Pinocchio struggles to live up to his father’s expectations

We all love and practice animation with great passion and believe it to be the ideal medium to retell this classic story in a completely new way -Guillermo del Toro.


Del Toro and Patrick McHale wrote the script for the film, and Alexandre Desplat is the musical and songs composer (lyrics by del Toro and Katz). Gris Grimly created the original design for the Pinocchio character. The film’s puppets are being built by Mackinnon and Saunders.

The Pinocchio project started in 2018. The film is produced by del Toro, The Jim Henson Company’s Lisa Henson, ShadowMachine’s Alex Bulkley and Corey Campodonico, as well as Exile Entertainment’s Gary Ungar; it is co-produced by Blanca Lista of The Jim Henson Company and Gris Grimly.
