Disney has done some wonderful remakes of animated films and given them new life with live action films. They did it with Beauty and the Beast and now they are doing it with Dumbo! Set to hit the big screen in March 2019 we are now getting our first looks at what is to come.
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.
I remember growing up and watching the animated version of Dumbo and loving it. It was one of the movies we watched over and over as small children. I cannot wait to see Dumbo when it releases in theaters, nationwide on March 29, 2019.
We do have a little sneak peak with the teaser trailer that was just released –
Wow! They did a phenomenal job! I cannot wait to see Dumbo in the theater. It looks like it is going to be a movie the whole family, from the youngest to the oldest, will enjoy.
