It’s crazy to think that the release of Live-Action Dumbo is right around the corner. It seems like only yesterday that it was announced. I am so looking forward to the Tim Burton version of this classic tale.
I feel like it’s going to have a darker twist obviously, but he always puts out quality films. When you combine his style with Disney, what can go wrong?
So, what will the live-action film be about? Here’s the official description from Disney:
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.
Pretty cool, huh?
Take a look at the posters below and be sure to catch Dumbo on March 29th.
