Walt Disney Pictures has released the first trailer for Dumbo, the next remake of one of their animated classics on the way after the live-action Winnie the Pooh movie, Christopher Robin, is released later this summer. The movie is directed by Tim Burton and stars Colin Farrell, Danny DeVito, Michael Keaton, Eva Green, Nico Parker, and Finley Hobbins.
The first trailer is just a teaser trailer, but it does run over a minute and gives us a good peek at the movie. Basically it looks like Burton remade Dumbo in the same style as his Big Fish, which is easily one of my favorite Burton films.
Continue below to read a synopsis and watch the first trailer.
From Disney and visionary director Tim Burton, the all-new grand live-action adventure “Dumbo” expands on the beloved classic story where differences are celebrated, family is cherished and dreams take flight.
Circus owner Max Medici (Danny DeVito) enlists former star Holt Farrier (Colin Farrell) and his children Milly (Nico Parker) and Joe (Finley Hobbins) to care for a newborn elephant whose oversized ears make him a laughingstock in an already struggling circus. But when they discover that Dumbo can fly, the circus makes an incredible comeback, attracting persuasive entrepreneur V.A. Vandevere (Michael Keaton), who recruits the peculiar pachyderm for his newest, larger-than-life entertainment venture, Dreamland. Dumbo soars to new heights alongside a charming and spectacular aerial artist, Colette Marchant (Eva Green), until Holt learns that beneath its shiny veneer, Dreamland is full of dark secrets.
Burton directed the movie from a screenplay penned by Ehren Kruger, whose previous credits include Arlington Road, The Ring, Ghost in the Shell, and Transformers sequels Revenge of the Fallen, Dark of the Moon, and Age of Extinction.
Dumbo is currently scheduled for release on March 29, 2019.
