"When Guillermo del Toro asked me to make the poster for this film, I was honored and excited to create something that could encapsulate the depth of feeling and labor of love that went into its production. He told me the film was inspired by his own relationship with his father. His Pinocchio is about what it means to be a good father, a bad father, and live in a world where fathers can learn to love you for who you are. At the heart of the film is the fusion, the dance of creation, between Geppetto and Pinocchio. I wanted to show Pinocchio stepping out into the world, literally leaping out of the picture frame, and Geppetto having difficulty letting go. The characters are under the protection of the Blue Fairy who looms above, wings outstretched."
