Then there's America: The Motion Picture where the story is about a fictionalized George Washington who puts together a fighting force of revolutionaries to combat King James. The film will involve the voice talents of Simon Pegg, Channing Tatum, and Judy Greer. We're also quite intrigued by Guillermo Del Toro’s Pinocchio that will involve a darker adaptation of the famous story of the puppet. It features an ensemble cast, including the talents of David Bradley, Finn Wolfhard, Daniel Radcliffe, Christopher Walken, John Turturro, and more!
“After years of pursuing this dream project, I found my perfect partner in Netflix,” said del Toro, according to Deadline. “We have spent a long time curating a remarkable cast and crew and have been blessed by continuous support from Netflix to quietly and carefully soldier on, barely missing a beat. We all love and practice animation with great passion and believe it to be the ideal medium to retell this classic story in a completely new way.”
