Book Trailer: Pan's Labyrinth: The Labyrinth of the Faun - Guillermo del Toro & Cornelia Funke

Today I wanted to share this book trailer for Pan's Labyrinth: The Labyrinth of the Faun by Guillermo del Toro and Cornelia Funke which is being published in the UK on the 2nd of July by Bloomsbury. It's been a long time since I watched the Pan's Labyrinth movie but I'm really curious to see how the authors have gone about creating this book. I think it's going to be a really creepy and dark read but if the illustrations are anywhere near as gorgeous as the ones in this book trailer then it's going to be a must own!

Oscar winning writer-director Guillermo del Toro and New York Times bestselling author Cornelia Funke come together to transform del Toro’s hit movie Pan’s Labyrinth into an epic and dark fantasy novel for readers of all ages, complete with gorgeous and haunting illustrations.

This book is not for the faint of heart or weak in spirit. It’s not for skeptics who don’t believe in fairy tales and the powerful forces of good. It’s only for brave and intrepid souls like you, who will stare down evil in all its forms.

Inspired by the critically acclaimed film written and directed by Oscar winner Guillermo del Toro and reimagined by New York Times bestselling author Cornelia Funke, this haunting tale takes readers to a darkly magical and war-torn world filled with richly drawn characters like trickster fauns, murderous men, child-eating monsters, courageous rebels, and a long-lost princess hoping to be reunited with her family.

Perfect for fans of the movie and readers who are new to del Toro’s visionary work, this atmospheric and absorbing novel is a portal to another universe where there is no wall between the real and the imagined. A daring, unforgettable collaboration between two brilliant storytellers.


Who else is a fan of the movie? Are you looking forward to reading the book? I love fairy tales and retellings so I have high hopes for this one, I'm always looking for recommendations though so please do let me know if there are any that you've read and loved.
