Netflix has announced that it is teaming up again with Guillermo del Toro for a stop-motion animation based on Kazuo Ishiguro’s novel The Buried Giant.

The novel The Buried Giant follows the story of an elderly couple named Axel and Beatrice who go on an adventure to find their missing son. The narrative takes place with the couple’s journey in ancient Britain. When the Saxons and Braytons live in a fragile peace after a devastating war. The peace that is the result of an agreement is a forgetfulness. An all-pervading oblivion that has spread across the land in the form of fog. This couple lives during the invasion of England by the Saxons and during the peace between King Arthur and the Bretons and has amnesia.
They don’t know if they had a child or not and they don’t know about their shared past. Of course, del Toro will first direct his next live-action film, which has not yet been announced and information about it is not available, and then he will move on to The Buried Giant. Nightmare Alley is the last live-action film directed by del Toro. Del Toro previously won 2 Oscars for the movie The Shape of Water: Best Film of the Year and Best Director.
