Pinocchio

In a recent interview with Angélique Roché for ACE Universe, Ewan McGregor revealed he’s voicing Jiminy Cricket in Guillermo del Toro’s stop-motion Pinocchio.

I’m playing Jiminy Cricket in Guillermo del Toro’s version of Pinocchio. That I had started working on before I left for New York, so some of that is recorded. And of course it’s stop-motion animated so it’s going to take them a great long time to make that film. But my first part, which is recording his dialogue, is sort of done. There may or may not be a song that has to be recorded. I’m not sure I’m at liberty to discuss that.
