The first look at Guillermo del Toro’s ‘Pinocchio’ has finally been released with its first teaser trailer after years of development. The film was first announced in 2008 and had many production issues and delays until Netflix announced it had acquired the film’s release a decade later in 2018.
Now in 2022, we finally get the first look at the stop-motion film with Netflix releasing a brief 53-second official teaser.
In the teaser, we meet Sebastian J. Cricket. He says in the clip, “I want to tell you a story. It’s a story you may think you know, but you don’t. Not really. You see, I, Sebastian J. Cricket, was there. As a matter of fact, I lived, actually lived, in the heart of the wooden boy.”
They also announce the film will only be released on Netflix in December of 2022.
