Studying Pan's Labyrinth

Tanya Jones

Liverpool University Press

This chapter mentions Pan's Labyrinth budget that was worth EUR 13.5 million and was produced by Guillermo del Toro's production company, Tequila Gang. It recounts del Toro's brave decisions during the crucial casting process and emphasizes the casting of Doug Jones as the 'continuity factor' in Pan's Labyrinth, who both portrayed the Faun and the Pale Man. It also describes Pan's Labyrinth's teaser and main trailers, which attempt to sell the film to audiences in a variety of ways. The chapter explores the genre identity of Pan's Labyrinth and how it is presented through the narrative fragments and mise-en-scène. It describes the fantastical creatures and setting of the labyrinth and fairy kingdom that identify Pan's Labyrinth as a fantasy piece.

Keywords:   Pan's Labyrinth, Guillermo del Toro, Tequila Gang, Doug Jones, genre identity, mise-en-scène
