Tim Burton is Directing the Live-Action 'Dumbo' Remake

DISNEYDumbo TRAILER Disney’s live-action remake from Tim Burton gets first teaser – WATCH here

An official synopsis for the film reads: "Disney's new live-action feature film Dumbo introduces Holt Farrier (Farrell), a former circus star who finds his life turned upside down when he returns from the war". Set to a haunting rendition of "Baby Mine", we get our first look at the world of Dreamland, the lead characters, including Dumbo himself, and Burton's trademark visual style as he takes on the classic Disney story. Burton directs Eva Green, Danny DeVito, Colin Farrell and Michael Keaton, as well as some pink elephants. While Burton and Depp seem to be attached at the hip, Depp's frequent over-costumed mugging has produced some of the least enjoyable Burton films.

Disney's program of remaking its classic animated movies has proved to be a hugely lucrative one to date. The new trailer includes shots of the circus and even a fleeting glimpse of Dumbo in flight. The screenplay of Dumbo is written by Ehren Kruger. Holt and his children, newcomers Nico Parker and Finley Hobbins, are tasked with carrying for the title newborn by snappily dressed circus owner Max Medici (Danny DeVito).

After finding fame at the circus, Dumbo soars to new heights alongside a charming and spectacular aerial artist in a new entertainment venture called Dreamland, according to the Disney Movie Trailer YouTube page. But Dumbo has a unique ability that soon garners the attention of the greedy entrepreneur - and obvious P.T. Barnum stand-in - V.A. Vandevere (Michael Keaton). Tim Burton is swapping big eyes for big ears, bringing his unique visual sensibilities to a new version of 1941's Dumbo. It will be released on March 29, 2019.
