First images of Guillermo del Toro's Pinocchio

Waiting for the first trailer, the next animated feature film by Guillermo del Toro, expected by the end of the year, is shown with the first photos.
Vanity Fair has exclusively released the first images of the long-awaited work of the award-winning Mexican producer and director, the stop-motion film about the famous story written by Carlo Collodi.

Pan's Labyrinth, Hellboy and The Shape of Water author and director says "They are both about a child that is thrown into the world. They are both created by a father who then expects them to figure out what’s good, what’s bad, the ethics, the morals, love, life, and essentials, on their own. I think that was, for me, childhood. You had to figure it out with your very limited experience."

"These are times that demand from kids a complexity that is tremendous. Far more daunting, I think, than when I was a child. Kids need answers and reassurances... For me, this is for both children and adults that talk to each other. It tackles very deep ideas about what makes us human," del Toro says. "In this version, "real" is a given. To me, it's essential to counter the idea that you have to change into a flesh-and-blood child to be a real human. All you need to be human is to really behave like one, you know? I have never believed that transformation [should] be demanded to gain love."

The film is co-directed by Mark Gustafson (animation director of Wes Anderson's Fantastic Mr. Fox) and the first animations will be showing these days at Annecy. This year, among other things, Disney, the brand of the classic 1940 animated film, will offer its own live version directed by Robert Zemeckis with Tom Hanks in the role of Geppetto.

Featuring animations produced by Californian studios Jim Henson's Creature Shop and British Mackinnon & Saunders, the film is expected exclusively on Netflix next Christmas.
