Screengrab "Dumbo"

Trailer for live-action Disney Dumbo Film is Revealed

Dumbo is flying back into theaters next year, March 2019. The first trailer for the new movie was released today. Tim Burton recreates the classic Disney film from 1941 in a tale of family, loss, a struggling circus and a unique elephant that at first discomforts people but in the end brings hope and inspiration to those he meets.

The film stars Colin Farrell as Holt Farrier, a former horse showman who returns from a war as a widower to his two children and a circus that is struggling to survive. The circus owner, Max Medici, portrayed by Danny DeVito, buys a pregnant elephant which leads to Dumbo flying into their lives and as Farrell told in an interview with Entertainment Weekly, “awakens everybody to their better selves.”

Take a look at the first trailer of the remake of the beloved 1941 Disney classic!
