Guillermo del Toro once said “No single character in history has had as deep of a personal connection to me as Pinocchio.”

And this is coming from a guy who loves his passion projects. So much so that you could arguably say that every Guillermo del Toro project is a passion project, but not every Guillermo del Toro passion project gets made...

It took fifteen years for Guillermo del Toro's Pinocchio to finally reach the big and small screen, in a year with two other Pinocchio adaptations - the Disney live action remake, starring Tom Hanks, directed by Robert Zemeckis, and the Pauly Shore led Pinocchio: A True Story. I think everyone agrees which is the superior 2022 Pinocchio...

Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio is the rare del Toro movie that, due to del Toro’s sheer resilience and stubbornness at not backing down from his artistic integrity, meant that not only did it get made, it was made exactly how he wanted it to be made.

I would love to hear your thoughts on Guillermo del Toro's Pinocchio !
