The main character from Carlo Collodi’s 1883 Italian book has long been a pop cultural phenomenon, due to the greater access that Disney’s 1940 musical adaptation afforded to audiences of different ages and languages.

Cricket. Other notable cast members include Finn Wolfhard, Ron Perlman, Cate Blanchett, Tim Blake Nelson, John Turturro, and Burn Gorman.

Del Toro explained his decision to use stop-motion animation despite the extra expense and his lack of familiarity with the medium:
