Disney has released the first teaser trailer for the new live-action Dumbo، and the Tim Burton film is sure to dazzle. In the clip، which lasts one minute and 20 seconds، we meet the adorable elephant with the plus-sized ears and even see him take flight، entertainment tonight reported.
The film is set to come out in March 2019 and stars Colin Farrell، Michael Keaton، Danny DeVito، and Eva Green. Though it seems to follow a similar story to the 1941 animated classic، this reimagining doesn’t appear to focus on the other animals in Dumbo’s life. Notably، Timothy Q. Mouse، Dumbo’s best friend in the original، is not listed as a character on the new film’s IMDb page.
Instead، the human characters will help bring Dumbo’s story to life. This isn’t Burton’s first time making a live-action recreation of a Disney film. The famed director also created 2010’s Alice in Wonderland and produced 2016’s Alice Through the Looking Glass.
Keaton notably played Batman in Burton’s action hero flicks in the ‘90s while DeVito played the villain Penguin in the same films. Green had starring roles in Burton’s films Dark Shadows and Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children.
Ferrell previously broke hearts for Disney in the endearing Saving Mr. Banks as the complicated father of Mary Poppins author P.L. Travers.
