Guillermo del Toro on Winning an Oscar for Pinocchio & Shopping with Steven Spielberg & J.J. Abrams

Published on March 14, 2023

Guillermo talks about winning an Oscar for Pinocchio, starting stop motion at eight years old, everybody in Mexico thinking that R2D2’s name was “Arturito,” losing his wallet and taking to Twitter for help finding it, his Oscar category being the first of the night, and going to a hobby shop in Burbank with J.J. Abrams & Steven Spielberg.

    Ok, but a movie of a potato that murders a family sounds like it could be a really good horror movie.

    Guillermo is not confused: R2D2 WAS called “Artudito” in the Latin American Spanish dub of Star Wars, which sounded like “Arturito” to everyone. “Artudito” is a way of spelling out the sound R2D2 the way it sounds in English. The movie was re-dubbed in the late 90s for the special edition.
