Guillermo del Toro Gómez is a Mexican director, producer, screenwriter, author, actor, and visual effects artist. He is known for his contributions to the film horror, supernatural, and fantasy genre, particularly with the horror films: Mimic and Crimson Peak, and other films; like Pan's Labyrinth and The Shape of Water (which won him an Academy Award For Best Director), all of which share a motif of del Toro's fascination with the beauty of the grotesque. He also directed the Marvel movie Blade II.

For Disney, he developed a treatment and script for a live-action The Haunted Mansion remake that was ultimately rejected after years of development hell and also developed the aborted "Disney Double Dare You" family horror label[1], which was prematurely shut down after the underperformance of Frankenweenie, though he was able to salvage the Trollhunters film concept into an animated series at Dreamworks and Netflix[2]. He also wrote, produced and directed Nightmare Alley, and guest-starred in the Mickey and the Roadster Racers episode "Goof Mansion" as the voice of Mr. Talbot.
