ahhh so many good shows happening in December in LA ! Be sure to check out this one. All the sneak peeks of Jim Henson inspired art work looks amazing. Can’t wait :)
According to the press kit, Jim’s motivations were two-fold: “A desire to see the beauty of the film transposed into another creative medium; and, to acknowledge the strong influence that film has always had on fashion.
i THINK we need to redo another dark crystal inspiration line! :)
Ooo can’t wait…guillermo del toro + jim henson company = AMAZING. Oh if you want to get scared go on the Pinocchio ride at Disneyland. Super creepy. Super weird…lets just say I won’t be going back on that ride anytime soon.
“There has to be darkness in any fairy tale or children’s narrative work, something the Brothers Grimm, Hans Christian Anderson and Walt Disney understood,” del Toro said. “We tend to call something Disney-fied, but a lot of people forget how powerfully disturbing the best animated Disney movies are, including those kids being turned into donkeys in Pinocchio. What we’re trying to do is present a Pinocchio that is more faithful to the take that Collodi wrote. That is more surreal and slightly darker than what we’ve seen before.”
