The First Trailer for Tim Burton’s Live-Action ‘Dumbo’ is Here!

Dumbo is ready to soar back into theaters and into the world’s hearts. Disney’s 1941 animated classic is back, and with director Tim Burton is at the helm of Disney’s latest live action remake, we’re sure to have some of the original films creepy elements brought back (we’re talking about the pink elephant scene of course).

The remake is a tale of family, loss, and a struggling circus, Dumbo the oddly cute and unique elephant brings hope and inspiration to everyone that he meets. Colin Farrell who plays Holt Farrier, a former horse showman that returns home from the war, only to find out he is now a widower to his two kids, and has to keep a struggling circus afloat.

The circus’ owner, Max Medici (Danny DeVito), buys a pregnant elephant and Dumbo enters their lives and “awakens everybody to their better selves,” Farrell told Entertainment Weekly.

Michael Keaton also stars in the film and plays V.A. Vandevere, who is the owner of a successful attraction called Dreamland. Vandevere’s attention is caught by the news of a flying elephant. Keaton told Entertainment Weekly that he enjoyed playing the antagonist in a story that is ultimately about love and acceptance. Keaton believes that Dumbo’s story has transcended generations because, “there’s a real elemental thing about family and what it means, to be a part of something.”

In the teaser trailer and first look at the film, we see Holt and his two children Milly (Nico Parker) and Joe (Finley Hobbins) meet Dumbo. We also see our first glimpse of a pink elephant bubble, similar to the original films creepily famous pink elephant dream sequence. At the end of the teaser, we see Dumbo soaring across the circus crowd.

Keaton says that the set of the film left him just about speechless. “The physical space was so enormous, it’s the largest set I’ve ever been on in my life,” Keaton told Entertainment Weekly. “Literally, a chill went up the back of my neck.”

The teaser is also accompanied by a new rendition of the original films Oscar-nominated classic, Baby Mine,” sung by Norwegian singer-songwriter Aurora. But will we get a new version of “When I See an Elephant Fly?” we’ll just have to wait and see what else Burton has up his sleeve.

“My sense is we’re on the cusp… of a re-emergence of consideration,” Keaton says. “People are worn out, not just by cruelty, but judgement and discrimination and inequality.”

Dumbo will fly into theaters in March 2018. Take a look at the first teaser trailer for the film here:
