Back in 2017, it was reported that Sam Mendes might be in the director's chair, and a little later Paul King was associated with the project.

Other studios are also involved in the adaptation of the Kollodi fairy tale. So, since 2018, director Guillermo Del Toro has been working on an animated version.

The project supports Netflix streaming service.
