The beautiful princess looking for love, the evil stepmother thwarting her every move, the handsome prince who comes to her rescue -- all are classic fairy tale characters that have come to life on the big screen, ever since the invention of movies.

After moving his family to New Zealand an spending two years of preparation, Guillermo Del Toro exited the now Peter Jackson-directed adaptation of "The Hobbit." Everyone's ears immediately perked up upon his departure - what was the imaginative director going to do next?! The unexpected choice: "Pinocchio."
With a dozen or so producing, writing and possible directing gigs on his plate (including the long-gesting, 3-D "At the Mountains of Madness" with James Cameron), Del Toro has moved forward on a stop-motion animated version of the classic fairytale that is expected to be darker and edgier than the Disney animated film.
