Mary Anne Butler
Mary Anne Butler (Mab) has been part of the fast-paced world of journalism since she was 15, getting her start in album reviews and live concert coverage for a nationally published (print) music magazine. She eventually transitioned to online media, writing for such sites as UGO/IGN, ComicsOnline, Geek Magazine, Ace of Geeks, Aggressive Comix (where she is still Editor-in-Chief), Bleeding Cool (where she was News Editor), and now NerdBot as News Editor. Over the past 10 years, she’s built a reputation at conventions across the globe as a cosplayer (occasionally), photographer (constantly), panelist and moderator (mostly), and reporter (always). Interviews, reviews, observations, breaking news, and objective reporting are the name of the game for the founder of Harkonnen Knife Fight, a Dune-themed band with an international presence. Though she be but little, she is fierce.

We are so pleased to share the official cast list for the upcoming Netflix “Pinocchio” stop motion film from the one and only visionary filmmaker, Guillermo del Toro. This is going to be so amazing!

Newcomer Gregory Mann will star as Pinocchio, with Ewan McGregor as Jiminy Cricket and David Bradley (Game of Thrones, The Strain) as Geppetto. Oscar winners winner Tilda Swinton, Christoph Waltz, Cate Blanchett and Golden Globe winner Ron Perlman, will be joined by Finn Wolfhard (Stranger Things), John Turturro (The Batman), Tim Blake Nelson (Watchmen), and Burn Gorman (Enola Holmes).

del Toro and Mark Gustafson (Fantastic Mr. Fox) are directing from a script by Del Toro and Patrick McHale. The song lyrics are by del Toro and Katz, with music by Oscar winning composer Alexandre Desplat who will also write the score. Gris Grimly created the original design for the Pinocchio character. The film’s puppets are being built by Mackinnon and Saunders, who also did Tim Burton‘s Corpse Bride.

The Oscar-winning filmmaker said:


“After years of pursuing this dream project, I found my perfect partner in Netflix. 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.”


del Toro, The Jim Henson Company’s Lisa Henson, ShadowMachine’s Alex Bulkley and Corey Campodonico, as well as Exile Entertainment’s Gary Ungar are executive producing “Pinocchio.” Blanca Lista of The Jim Henson Company and Gris Grimly are co-producing. Melanie Coombs is production supervisor, co-production designers Guy Davis and Curt Enderle, animation supervisor Brian Hansen, puppet supervisor Georgina Hayns, director of photography Frank Passingham, art director Rob DeSue, and animatic editor Ken Schretzmann.

No word on when we’ll be seeing del Toro’s “Pinocchio,” but we will for sure let you know what we hear.
