In the past couple of years, Walt Disney Pictures announced a slew of live-action remakes of its beloved animated classics, and now one by one they are starting to come to fruition. Next on the list will be a remake of the 1941 animated film, Dumbo, currently due out in live-action form on March 29, 2019.
Last week we got our first glimpse of the new film with a teaser trailer, featuring a new rendition of “Baby Mine” sung by Norwegian pop singer Aurora. The trailer features brief looks at the circus, Dreamland, and most importantly, the adorable baby elephant Dumbo.
Disney’s live-action remake of Dumbo is being directed by Tim Burton, and will star Danny DeVito, Colin Farrell, Michal Keaton, Eva Green, and Alan Arkin. DeVito revealed at CinemaCon earlier this year that unlike in the animated original where Dumbo does not fly until the film’s end, this new version will start off with the long-eared elephant taking flight.
