Disney’s newest trailer for the Tim Burton-directed live-action Dumbo remake has arrived. If the trailer is any indication, the movie looks like it’s going to be a tear-jerker.
Even though the trailer contains a few nods to Disney’s original animated version from 1941, such as the mouse wearing a marching band outfit and Dumbo holding a “magic” feather, it is definitely a Tim Burton movie that appears to have some dark drama. You can read the official synopsis below.
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.
Disney’s Dumbo flies into theaters on March 29, 2019. Will you be there? And what did you think of the trailer? Let us know in the comments below.
