The pandemic has done little to slow the prolific del Toro, who earned best picture and best director Oscars for his most recent film, 2018’s “The Shape of Water.” The release of the supernatural thriller “Antlers,” which he produced, got pushed to 2021, and he expressed frustration about the machinations of resuming production on his next directorial effort, “Nightmare Alley.” But he still managed to put out the animated Netflix series “Wizards,” the third in his “Tiles of Arcadia” trilogy feature, for which he’s helming a feature spinoff, “Trollhunters: Rise of the Titans,” due in 2021. Also scheduled for release in 2021 is his animated reimagining of “Pinocchio” for Netflix, while the big-screen adaptation of Roald Dahl’s novel “The Witches” that he co-wrote and produced was released on HBO Max in October.
