Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio Gets an Amazing Hand-Drawn Poster

After Cabinet of Curiosities, Guillermo del Toro is set to take the helm on his first animated film Pinocchio. The movie is currently available in select theaters, and it just unveiled a new hand-drawn poster from artists James Jean.

While fans are familiar with Disney’s version of the Pinocchio story, del Toro promises to embrace the darker sides of the tale, especially when it comes to the lessons about being mischievous.

Also, we should expect some more existential themes in the story like ‘what it means to be a real boy’ or ‘what are lies in the face of fascism.’ I know, the film sounds like it can get pretty dark, but I think this could be the more interesting dissection of the character—one that we haven’t seen brought to screen like ever before.

Here’s the official movie description:

Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Guillermo del Toro reinvents the classic tale of the wooden marionette who is magically brought to life in order to mend the heart of a grieving woodcarver named Geppetto. This whimsical, stop-motion film directed by Guillermo del Toro and Mark Gustafson follows the mischievous and disobedient adventures of Pinocchio in his pursuit of a place in the world.

Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio is now showing in theaters and is set to release on Netfix on Dec. 9.
