As could already be understood from the first teaser trailer, Pinocchio by del Toro will be a very dark and moving story . This can be understood from the dark tones and from some phrases pronounced by the protagonists, as in a scene with Pinocchio who, before running away from home, turns to Grillo referring to Geppetto:

You tell him I love him. And that for him I will no longer be a burden.

The first differences with Collodi's original story

In fact, from the trailer, they can already be seen many substantial differences from Collodi's original story. For example, we understand that Geppetto has lost a young son in the past, a fact that is not mentioned in the original story of the Italian writer Collodi. In addition, in del Toro's film, Geppetto takes his deceased son's School History book to give it to the puppet Pinocchio; in Collodi's original story, Geppetto sells his jacket for the winter in order to earn the money needed for the abcedario for Pinocchio.

As for the characters, the Blue Fairy is represented in a completely new and unexpected way in this Netflix feature, that is, like a blue sphinx with graceful movements and a mystical and solemn air. A character with ape-like features follows Pinocchio in the trailer of the film, a character that is original and exclusive, not to be confused with the Gorilla judge of the original story of Collodi but with whom perhaps he has something in common. Fire Eater has been replaced with Count Volpe, a new character that is probably a fusion of Fire Eater and La Volpe, who in the original story was paired with The Cat (characters who do not actually appear in the trailer or cast).

Another novelty of the film will be the setting. Indeed, Pinocchio by Guillermo del Toro will be set in the fascist era.
