Guillermo del Toro has signed on to direct, write and produce a musical take on Pinocchio for Netflix. The passion project will be his debut as director of a feature length stop motion animation.
Pinocchio is a production of Guillermo del Toro, The Jim Henson Company (The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance), and ShadowMachine (Bojack Horseman, The Shivering Truth), which will house the stop-motion animation production.
I’m doing something a little different. Either you are moving forward or stuck in a rut. So I’m trying my hand at doing more YouTube videos and reviews. Here’s a video review of Disney’s Pinocchio Signature Edition Blu-ray. Bare with me while I get my YouTube Fu correct. I’m getting new equipment and beefing up my editing chops. But I’m also trying not to overthink this and make it harder on myself than it needs to be. Let me know what you all think.
Pinocchio is out on Digital HD and Disney Movies Anywhere This Week. To celebrate check out these new bonus clips from the early days of Disney Animation that show Walt Disney’s process while creating Pinocchio! You can download it today. Have I said lately how much I adore Disney Movies Anywhere? Buy it once and it shows up on almost all Digital services including Ultraviolet, iTunes, Microsoft, PSN Network, Amazon and Google! The really cool thing is the extras are always included as well. I wish ALL studios would do this. Sick of having to choose between services. Disney gets mad props for going a step beyond in the way they treat their fans. Yes, I’m saying all of this because I expect my free review copy :). But come on Disney, 4K Man, 4K! Check out the clips. Pinocchio is out on Blu-ray™ and DVD on Jan. 31.
Disney’s timeless tale Pinocchio, considered one of the greatest animated films ever made with two Academy Awards, joins the Walt Disney Signature Collection. Now it will delight a whole new generation of dreamers with its masterful animation, unforgettable characters and award-winning music. The movie which inspired the world to wish upon a star, arrives for the first time on Digital HD and Disney Movies Anywhere on Jan. 10, and on Blu-ray™ and DVD on Jan. 31 with hours of new and classic bonus features. When is Disney jumping on the 4K UHD bandwagon? Nevermind, I’d probably be salty to discover none of my Disney Movies Anywhere content will “automatically upgrade” to UHD quality anyway.
