For everyone who’s most beloved childhood memory has been Pinocchio, we have big news! The movie Pinocchio is all set to come back to the screens. The American-French musical film will be releasing on Netflix. The story is about a much loved human puppet. As per the latest update, the director of the movie Guillermo del Toro is ditching the general storyline. He is said to be going for a much darker and sinister kind of story for the upcoming film.
When is Pinocchio Sequel Releasing?
The original script for the sequel was written by the director Toro back in 2008. After a decade and much deliberation, Netflix acquired the right for the sequel. And finally, Pinocchio is coming back.
The filming began in Guadalajara, Mexico, and Portland, Oregon, on January 31, 2020. But because of the Coronavirus pandemic, the production has been paused for a while. The movie was scheduled to be released in early 2021. But since the production has been put on hold so there might be some delays in the release.
The official date for the release is yet to be announced.
Who All Are Coming Back For Pinocchio?
There is no official list yet, but we are expecting some of the actors who were in the previous movie to be back for the second one too. We are expecting Veteran actor Ewan McGregor as the voice of Pinocchio to be back. Along with Christoph Waltz, Ron Perlman, Tilda Swinton, and David Bradley to be back too.
What Is The Expected Plot For Pinocchio?
There is not much revealed for the plot of the movie. But we do have some information here and there. The film is said to be based in the 1930s era in Italy. The period is about the rule of leader Benito Mussolini.
And when Pinnochio comes around, he becomes used to the society and the culture around him. The story is the journey of self-discovery in a world where Pinocchio never received the love and care from his father.
Toro has also already said that he is going for a dark fantasy theme, so we may expect the story to be exciting and have a slight political edge.
We will have more clarity of the plot of the movie once the trailer is released.
