Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio is considered a masterclass in stop-motion animation and storytelling. The acclaimed dark fairytale film released on Netflix in 2022 quickly became an early awards contender and has won several awards already throughout the season, including Best Animated Feature at the Golden Globe Awards.

This year’s Best Animated Feature category at the 95th Academy Awards is particularly competitive, with Pinocchio up against other beloved movies like Turning Red, Marcel the Shell with Shoes On, and Puss in Boots: The Last Wish. Netflix’s other hit animated feature, The Sea Beast, was also nominated.

Guillermo del Toro’s version of Pinocchio is a dark fantasy musical film about a father’s wish magically bringing a wooden toy to life. While this version of Pinocchio is a retelling of the classic story, it’s a much darker rendition, set in fascist Italy during World War II. The film is a long-time passion project for Del Toro, and seeing it finally come to life has been exciting.

In addition to the beautiful craftsmanship used to create the stunning animation, Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio boasts an excellent voice cast featuring the vocal talents of actors like Cate Blanchett, Ewan McGregor, David Bradley, Gregory Mann, Burn Gorman, Ron Perlman, Finn Wolfhard, Tim Blake Nelson, Christoph Waltz, and Tilda Swinton.
