#12 GUILLERMO DEL TORO’S PINOCCHIO FLIPSIDE
It was stated by the director that the movie is personal for him. He said “The flip-side for me has always been Pinocchio and Frankenstein is the same story.

So, there is really a difference between the classic Pinocchio compared to the one directed or made by Guillermo Del Toro. It is more theatrical and musical which will interest everyone especially the music lovers.
