Guillermo del Toro revealed a series of first-look images for his upcoming stop-motion Pinocchio at the Annecy International Animation Film Festival, alongside an exclusive teaser, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The outlet reported that the preview teased Geppetto’s (David Bradley) first interaction with Pinocchio (Gregory Mann), who wakes up the old woodcarver after making noise in the attic. “Who goes there?” Gepetto asks as he ascends into the attic, where he finds Pinocchio. “You asked for me to live. I’m your son,” the wooden character replies.

According to Netflix’s official description, del Toro “reinvents Carlo Collodi’s classic tale of the wooden marionette who is magically brought to life in order to mend the heart of a grieving woodcarver.” Set during Benito Mussolini’s fascist ruling over 1930s Italy, the film follows Pinocchio’s cruel and mischievous escapades as he attempts to discover his place in the world.

Aside from Bradley and Mann, the voice cast includes Ewan McGregor, Cate Blanchett, Tilda Swinton, Christoph Waltz, Ron Perlman, Finn Wolfhard, John Turturro, Tim Blake Nelson and Burn Gorman.

The film is directed by Oscar-winner del Toro and Mark Gustafson, based on a script written by del Toro and Patrick McHale. The movie’s producers include del Toro, Lisa Henson (Jim Henson Company), Alex Bulkley, Corey Campodonico (Shadow Machine) and Gary Ungar.

Pinocchio is scheduled to debut on Netflix in December. Revel in Guillermo del Toro’s first-look image above.

Elsewhere in entertainment, Netflix has announced the release date for Kid Cudi and Kenya Barris’ Entergalactic.
