Disney releases teaser trailer for Tim Burton’s live-action ‘Dumbo’

Jay Maidment  Disney

Tim Burton, obviously, is definitely the right person for the job when it comes to reviving Disney's Dumbo vibes.

The studio characterizes the film as an expansion of the beloved story, which sounds about right, as instead of Dumbo being ostracized for his oversize ears, he's taken in by a loving family before it's discovered the tiny elephant can fly. Following the successes of The Jungle Book, Pete's Dragon and Beauty and The Beast, Disney handles the reins of handling the Dumbo adaptation to the Academy Award-nominated director Tim Burton. There, they bond with the circus's newest addition, a shy young elephant named Dumbo. There he meets the baby elephant Dumbo, who is mocked for his giant ears but is clearly destined for great things. And that's good. Burton takes Dumbo to the turn of the 20th century, dousing the film with Gilded Age aesthetics and callbacks to the era of traveling circuses. 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). Colin Farrell, Michael Keaton, Eva Green, Danny DeVito, Alan Arkin, and Nico Parker lead the cast.

Farrell, 42, plays Holt Farrier, seen above in an exclusive first look with Eva Green, who plays aerial acrobat Colette Marchant.

The first trailer for Burton's Dumbo, set for release in March 2019, is as sad as the original, but has the trademark dark features that go along with a Burton film.
