Whatever he puts his weird, imaginative mind to (a dark, nightmarish movie about fascism, a Saturday morning cartoon for kids) Guillermo del Toro makes strange and beautiful stories. And judging by the short trailer below, his Netflix adaptation of Pinocchio, out this December—and starring Ewan McGregor as Sebastian J. Cricket, who actually “lived in the heart of the wooden boy”—will be no different. (The cast also includes the brilliance of Cate Blanchett and Tilda Swinton, along with Stranger Things’ Finn Wolfhard.)
