Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio Arrives On 4K UHD, Blu-ray, And DVD On December 12, 2023

The Criterion Collection has announced that Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio will arrive on 4K UHD ($39.96), Blu-ray ($31.96), and DVD ($23.96) on December 12, 2023.

A classic tale is reborn through the inspired imagination of cinematic dream-weaver Guillermo del Toro, directing alongside Mark Gustafson. Realized through boundary-pushing, breathtakingly intricate stop-motion animation, this dark rendering of the fable of the puppet boy and his maker—which won the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature—daringly transfers the story to Fascist Italy, where the irrepressible Pinocchio gradually learns what it means to be human through his experiences of war, death, and sacrifice. Featuring the voices of Ewan McGregor, Cate Blanchett, Tilda Swinton, and Christoph Waltz, this Pinocchio imbues the oft-told tale with a bold new resonance about living with courage and compassion.
