Guillermo del Torro’s Pinocchio (2022)
This holiday season Guillermo del Torro’s bring us a reimagined version of the wooden boy with a borrowed soul – Pinocchio. We see the twig-like Pinocchio played Finn Wolfhard embark on an adventure away from his fatherly maker to avoid being a burden to him.
In the seemingly happy circus world, Pinocchio learns things aren’t as cheery as they seem, and man is full of deceit, even as he is assigned a guardian – a bug, by the sphinxlike fairy voiced by Tilda Swinton to guide him on the path of good.
Packing a stellar cast of Ewan McGregor, David Bradley, Gregory Mann, Ron Perlman, Fin Wolfhard, Cate Blanchett, Christopher Waltz and Tilda Swinton is already screening on Netflix.
