The new footage revealed stars Colin Farrell, Danny DeVito, Eva Green and Michael Keaton, as they walked through a Tim Burton-created circus environment. And the circus looks pretty much exactly like you’d expect a Tim Burton-created circus to look! It was a fantastic teaser as we are less than a year away from it hitting the big screen!
Tim Burton’s live-action remake of Dumbo finished filming in November and is currently in the post-production phase!
The remake stars Colin Ferrell as Holt Farrier. Farrier is a war veteran and former circus star from Kentucky. He finds his life significantly different when he returns home from war. Small circus owner, Max Medici, played by Danny DeVito, hires Farrier to care for a newborn elephant which his children befriend. While at first the baby elephant is the laughing stock a circus struggling to get by thanks to his oversized ears, things change when the children learn that this elephant can fly!
Directed by Tim Burton and written by Ehren Kruger, the story is based on a storyline written by Helen Aberson. It is loosely inspired by Walt Disney’s 1941 animated classic of the same name.
The movie is scheduled to hit theaters on March 29, 2019.
I don’t know about you, but those images of Dumbo are so sweet! I cannot wait until Disney releases the first trailer for this upcoming movie!
