What’s more, it features some fantastic musical numbers, which is a good sign for this next venture because del Toro’sÂ Pinocchio will indeed be a musical.As you might imagine, del Toro’s take on Pinocchio will lean gleefully into the darker elements of the taleâ€”and if you’ve seen Disney’s 1940 animated feature, you know there is darkness aplenty. (If youÂ haven’t, or if it’s been a while, our latestÂ Animation InvestigationÂ will remind you thatÂ PinocchioÂ is one freaky excuse for a children’s movie.)Â Much likeÂ The Shape of WaterÂ melded fantastical elements with the sinister contexts of the political backdrop of its era (1960s Washington DC), so willÂ Pinocchio blend its own fairy tale with the setting of 1930s Italy.What do you think of Guillermo del Toro’s 1930s-Italy-setÂ stop-motionÂ musicalÂ Pinocchio?
