The first trailer for the upcoming live-action Dumbo movie adaptation from Tim Burton has been released, and fans of Disney are most likely going to enjoy it. It’s always interesting to see such a beloved property adapted for a new generation, so we’re sure people are going to be talking about this one for a while. Unless it’s as forgettable as Burton’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory adaptation back in 2005, of course.
The synopsis for the upcoming film reads:
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.
Dumbo hits theaters everywhere on March 29th, 2019.
