Finn Wolfhard talks role in Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio during Post Screening of the film.

I caught Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio at the 2022 AFI Film Festival. I can’t recommend checking out the film enough on the biggest screen if you can when it is released in theaters on November 18.

Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio tells the story of a father’s wish magically bring a wooden boy to life in Italy, giving him a chance to care for the child. The film was written by del Toro and Patrick McHale, with del Toro sharing the directing duties with Mark Gustafson. It stars Gregory Mann as Pinocchio, Ewan McGregor as Sebastian Cricket, Christoph Waltz as Count Volpe, David Bradley as Master Geppetto, and Finn Wolfhard as Candlewick. 

We attended a post-screening Q&A of the movie that included del Toro, Gustafson, Waltz, Mann, and Wolfhard. In the clip below, you hear about Finn Wolfhard auditioning for the role and much more.
