Who would have thought that a Pinocchio puppet could be this terrifying? Guillermo Del Toro is involved? Oh, that makes sense now.
What you are witnessing is a sneak peek at the star of the upcoming stop motion Pinocchio film directed by Gris Grimly and Mark Gustafson and produced by The Jim Henson Company and Guillermo Del Toro.
The puppet won’t appear in the film, it’s actually a maquette used to woo distributors, but if this dark version of the classic tale takes off, you know this puppet has some great merchandising potential.
Check out an image of the actual character models after the break.
