Frankenstein continues Netflix’s partnership with del Toro, including the Oscar winner for Best Animated Feature Film, Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio, the anthology series Guillermo del Toro’s Cabinet of Curiosities, and the animated films Trollhunters: Rise of the Titans and Trollhunters: Tales of Arcadia.
The film also continues Netflix’s partnership with Oscar winner J. Miles Dale, who recently served as executive producer and co-showrunner on Guillermo del Toro’s Cabinet Of Curiosities.
