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.
The quality of its award-winning, bestselling titles for classic brands like The Dark Crystal, Labyrinth, Fraggle Rock and The Storyteller have earned BOOM! Studios renewed licensing agreement for those brands by The Jim Henson Company.
If you’re between 18-34, and feel like you’re being ignored by the media, an as yet unnamed cable network is planned to provide viewers in your demographic with ‘Entertainment That Matters For Viewers 18-34.’ The network is being launched by Participant Media (An Inconvenient Truth, Promised Land) and is a cooperative effort that is supported by The Jim Henson Company, Meghan McCain, Morgan Spurlock, Mary Harron, Gotham Chopra, Timothy Scott Bogart, and Cineflix Media, among others.
