Guillermo del Toro Stated To Make Netflix’s The Buried Giant After Pinocchio’s Success

Guillermo del Toro is set to return with another animated film, a version of The Buried Giant, following the triumph of his previous film, Pinocchio. The video will also be produced for Netflix. Guillermo del Toro is said to have enlisted the help of stop-motion animation company ShadowMachine for The Buried Giant, just as he did for Pinocchio. The Oscar-nominated version of Carlo Collodi’s children’s book has already garnered much applause and critical praise for its visual style and storytelling ability.

With the translation of Carlo Collodi’s book, the author of Cabinet of Curiosities made his first foray into stop-motion animation. The Buried Giant should be similar to Del Toro’s previous film in that it combines aspects of magical realism, creatures, and symbolic grandeur.

The script for The Buried Giant is being written by Guillermo del Toro and Dennis Kelly.

While details about Guillermo del Toro’s next project are still scarce, the director has divulged that he has already begun working on a script with Dennis Kelly. The film will be based on the fantastic book of the same name by Nobel Prize-winning British novelist Kazuo Ishiguro. The plot of the novel revolves around an elderly British couple, Axl and Beatrice, who live in a fictional post-Arthur England where no one can store long-term memories. The couple sets out to locate their son after thinking he might have one.

“The Buried Giant continues my animation collaboration with Netflix and our pursuit of stop-motion as a medium to convey complicated stories and create infinite worlds. “It is an honor and a great obligation for me to direct this script that Dennis Kelly and I are translating from Kazuo Ishiguro’s profound and creative book.”
