Dumbo Official Teaser Trailer
The beloved tale gets ready for new heights as Disney (and director Tim Burton) release the official teaser trailer for the upcoming live-action film for Dumbo. View trailer below.
Holt was once a circus star, but he went off to war and when he returned it had terribly altered him. Circus owner Max Medici (Danny DeVito) hires him to take care of Dumbo, a newborn elephant whose oversized ears make him the laughing stock of the struggling circus troupe. But when Holt’s children discover that Dumbo can fly, silver-tongued entrepreneur V.A. Vandevere (Michael Keaton), and aerial artist Colette Marchant (Eva Green) swoop in to make the little elephant a star.
Interesting, I totally forgot about this movie. I mean, I remember Disney doing a live-action feature of this, but kept on forgetting about as I always hear more about other upcoming remakes like The Lion King, Mulan, and Aladdin. From the trailer, this movie looks well-made and Burton’s imagination will indeed aid this theatrical endeavor. However, while Disney’s animated Dumbo is indeed a classic, it wasn’t one of my favorite ones. That’s mostly due to some of the sad moments of the feature like when Dumbo’s mother is chained up (I cry every time I see that scene). Still, I love Disney’s recent live-action remakes of their animated classics (most Cinderella and Beauty and Beast). All in all, I sincerely hope this movie is good and looking forward to it….
