The premiere of “Pinocchio” at the BFI Film Festival

The director of the Oscar films William Del Toro adapted a classic Italian fairy tale starring Pinocchio, which Netflix subscribers will soon be able to watch. But as it recently became known, the 66th BFI London Film Festival is the one that will host the world premiere of “Pinocchio”. Based on the classic tale by Carlo Collodi, the film is set in 1930, during the rise of fascism in Italy where a wooden puppet comes to life to heal the heart of a grieving woodcarver named Geppetto.

The film will be shown on Royal Festival Hall of Southbank Centre. The famous Italian fairy tale has had quite an impact on Del Toro, who stated that “no other art form has influenced my life and career as much as animation, and no character in history has connected with me as deeply and personally as the Pinocchio”. He co-directs with Mark Gustafson from a script by himself and Patrick McHale. The BFI London Film Festival will run from 5 to 15 October 2022.

The subversive musical from the award-winning director is set to be released on Netflix next December. In the musical we will hear the voices of Ewan McGregor as Cricket, David Bradley as Cebeto and Gregory Mann as Pinocchio. Also starring Finn Wolfhard, Cate Blanchett, John Turturro, Ron Perlman, Tim Blake Nelson, Burn Gorman, Christoph Waltz and Tilda Swinton.
