Check out the first images (above) from the upcoming 3D, stop-motion Pinocchio movie.

Last we heard, Warner Bros was working on a live action version of the classic tale.

In the meanwhile, The Hobbit Pan's Labyrinth director Guillermo del Toro has teamed up with The Jim Henson Company and Pathe on this edgy version of the Disney classic that draws heavily from a 2002 Pinocchio book, which was illustrated by Gris Grimly.

Grimly will co-direct with Mark Gustafson, and production will start up later this year.

Here's what del Toro had to say about the project:

“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. 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.”

More from del Toro:

"The Blue Fairy is really a dead girl’s spirit. Pinocchio has strange moments of lucid dreaming bordering on hallucinations, with black rabbits. The sperm whale that swallows Pinocchio was actually a giant dogfish, which allows for more classical scale and design. The many mishaps Pinocchio goes through include several near-death close calls, a lot more harrowing moments. The key with this is not making any of it feel gratuitous, because the story is integrated with moments of comedy and beauty. He’s one of the great characters, whose purity and innocence allows him to survive in this bleak landscape of robbers and thugs, emerging from the darkness with his soul intact.”

This is exactly what we'd expect from the guy who brought us Pan's Labyrinth, and we're feeling good about it!

Besides, it couldn't POSSIBLY be any worse than the 1996 Jonathan Taylor Thomas Pinocchio movie. Oh, JTT…

What do U think? Are U intrigued by this dark, creepy take on Pinocchio?

Oh man. This sounds PERFECT for her!

Tori Amos can now reportedly add playwright to her list of accomplishments, as she's behind a new musical set to be staged by Britain's National Theatre!

The piece is allegedly based on the 19th century fairy tale The Light Princess, written by George McDonald, and Amos has written all of the music and lyrics for the reinterpretation, set to debut in early 2012!

Amazing! We just know that this is going to be stunning!

But as much as we're excited for this, bb, we hope you have a new album in the works!

We're in dire need of new Tori!

K-Stew As Snow White?

kristen stewart up for snow white role

Guess we should call her K-Snow! LOLz.

The latest potential cast member for Universal's Snow White and the Hunstman is Kristen Stewart, who's up for the role of Snow White.

Other actors being courted for roles in the darker update of the classic fairy tale include Tom Hardy Johnny Depp Viggo Mortensen for the Huntsman, and Charlize Theron as the evil queen.

If we were talking about the traditional Snow White, we'd say it might be tough for Kristen to portray such an upbeat, song-happy character, but since this is clearly a darker, grittier take on the character…yeah, she might work!

Do U think K-Stew is right for Snow White?
