The Pinocchio story is reimagined in this Netflix production, which is set in Mussolini’s fascist Italy. Many well-known actors provide their voices to the project, including Ewan McGregor, Cate Blanchett, John Turturro, and Tilda Swinton.
“It’s a movie not for kids, but kids can see it with you,” del Toro said while accepting the Oscar Tuesday.

Award-winning director Guillermo del Toro was occasionally on set in Oregon to work with veteran Portland animator Mark Gustafson. During the COVID-19 outbreak in Oregon, “Pinocchio” was forced to close for over two months, but the filmmakers made do by creating puppets at home and rearranging their timetable to keep the number of animators on set to a minimum.
Beginning this Friday, you may see “Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio” on Netflix.
Netflix hosts “Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio,” which was filmed in Oregon’s largest city.
Stop-motion animation is a painstaking method in which puppets are filmed individually and then manipulated between frames to give the impression that they are in motion. The film took more than a thousand days to shoot, del Toro remarked at the presentation on Tuesday. More than two hundred individuals were scheduled to work on the picture, and some scenes were even set to be shot in del Toro’s native Mexico.
ShadowMachine Movie Animation Company
In Portland, the film was produced by animation company ShadowMachine, whose co-founders, Alex Bulkley and Corey Campodonico, also served as producers.
It all started in 1975 with Will Vinton’s Closed Mondays, an Oscar-winning animated short shot entirely in Portland. Laika, once owned by Nike co-founder Phil Knight and headquartered in Hillsboro, was originally Vinton’s animation studio in Portland. The stop-motion films produced by Laika have been consistently successful, most recently “Missing Link,” which took home the Golden Globe in 2020.
