Disney releases trailer for live-action Dumbo


On the heels of the success of live-action versions of Cinderella, Maleficent, Jungle Book and Beauty and the Beast, Disney released the official teaser trailer for Dumbo on Wednesday.

Directed by Tim Burton, the film stars Colin Farrell, Danny DeVito and Michael Keaton.

Disney describes the plot of Dumbo like this: 

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 also has live-action adaptions of Aladdin, starring Will Smith as Genie, The Lion KIng,  starring Donald Glover and Beyonce, MulanThe Little MermaidSnow White, a Cruella de Vil 101 Dalmations spinoff and Peter Pan in the works.

Dumbo  is set to soar into theaters on March 29, 2019.
