Guillermo del Toro is really embracing stop-motion animation.
The acclaimed filmmaker’s Pinocchio feature is now streaming on Netflix, and he has said he would consider stop-motion for his long-gestating adaptation of At the Mountains of Madness.
And now, word has dropped that he will deliver at least one stop-motion animation episode of his Cabinet of Curiosities anthology series–if it’s renewed for a second season on Netflix.
The Oscar winner recently told comicbook.com that the fate of Cabinet is up in the air right now. When asked about a possible Season 2, del Toro said, “I don’t know yet. It’s like The Wizard of Oz–you have to wait for the wizard to call you in, and they tell you if you’re doing it or not. It can go either way.”
The director said he would love to continue the series, “because you can protect and make a perfect environment for other directors. But, at the same time, it’s a lot of work.” But, del Toro added, “If there is a second season, there will be one stop-motion horror.”
Guillermo del Toro’s Cabinet of Curiosities is described as “a collection of genre-defining stories meant to challenge the traditional notions of horror,” according to the logline.
“From macabre to magical, gothic to grotesque or classically creepy, the eight sinister tales–including two from del Toro–are brought to life by a team of writers and directors chosen by del Toro.”
