Like “Pinnocchio”, the fantasy story “The Buried Giant” will also be an animated film and del Toro says he is honored to bring Ishiguro’s work to life.

That’s what “The Buried Giant” is about

The Buried Giant was published in 2015 by British Nobel laureate Kazuo Ishiguro. The story is set in Great Britain, after the reign of King Arthur, in the Dark Ages. After a long war with the Saxons, not much is left of the country and peace does not seem to last. A fog of oblivion is descending more and more over Britain – in the truest sense of the word. However, the fog not only ensures that the atrocities of war are forgotten, but also that one no longer remembers one’s own past.

Axl and Beatrice, who have grown old, love each other very much, but are afraid to forget their togetherness because of their neighbor. Beatrice also wants to see her son again, whom she can barely remember. So the pair embark on a long journey to escape the fog. Along the way, strangers join together with similar goals.

Incidentally, Ishiguro is not an unknown name in the film world. Both his biggest hits “What Was Left of the Day” from 1989 and “All We Had to Give” from 2005 were made into movies.

It is not yet known when “The Buried Giant” will appear in cinemas and on Netflix.
