Meet the A-List Cast of Tim Burton's Live-Action Dumbo Film

Disney has revealed the first teaser trailer for the 2019 Dumbo film, and we're already hooked. In addition to getting back to the circus and seeing the adorable Dumbo with his big ears, this film will be brought to you by Tim Burton, which means there will be extra thrills and a little darkness that we can't wait to see.

In the new live-action movie we will see Colin Farrell's Holt return to life under the big top to train and watch the adorable Dumbo. Since Dumbo has big ears, he's the laughing stock of the circus, which is struggling to survive, but luckily Holt's children take to him quickly and make him a part of their family. They are the ones who discover that Dumbo can fly, which of course causes a lot of drama for the little elephant.

Is Tim Burton Returning to Form With 'Dumbo'?

This week, Disney released the teaser trailer for its latest live-action adaptation of an animated classic: Dumbo. Based on the beloved 1941 film, this new version sees director Tim Burton take on the unique challenge of bringing the flying baby elephant to life.

Disney’s recent string of live-action reinterpretations of its animated library have found recent success with Beauty and the Beast (2017), The Jungle Book (2016), Cinderella (2015) and Maleficent (2014). But the film that helped kick off Disney’s renaissance of live-action hits — those not involving superheroes, Jedi or pirates — was Burton’s Alice in Wonderland (2010).

Brad Bird’s Movies, Ranked Worst to Best

Brad Bird’s Movies, Ranked Worst to Best
Animation directors rarely accrue status as major filmmakers in America, but Brad Bird is in a class of his own. An art-school colleague of Tim Burton who went on to become a key creative force in shaping “The Simpsons,” Bird is a pivotal figure in exploring the American dream through the vernacular of popular culture. From the way Cold War anxieties play off the imagination of a young boy in “The Iron Giant” to the brilliant injection of the nuclear-family dynamics into superhero tropes with “The Incredibles,” Bird combines crackling, otherworldly storytelling with intelligent sociopolitical investigation.

Well, almost. Animation has provided such a key vessel for Bird’s aesthetic that it was bound to suffer a bit in translation, and Bird’s two forays into live action fall short. All the more reason to celebrate his return to the animated form with “Incredibles 2,” opening this week, and to look

Comcast Will Reimburse Fox That $1.525 Billion Breakup Fee if It Dumps Disney

Watch your tail, Mickey: Comcast just swooped in with $10.8 billion — or 19 percent — more for 21st Century Fox assets than Disney’s accepted offer.

But that’s not all Brian L. Roberts & co. is willing to fork over for Fox to reconsider its sale to Bob Iger’s mass-media corporation.

First, there is the same insurance policy that Disney offered Fox. If Fox picks Comcast over Disney and their merger doesn’t go through, the 21st Century company gets $2.5 billion dollars.

If you're a fan of the 1941, Oscar-winning, animated Disney classic Dumbo, you're going to find a lot to love in Tim Burton's new live-action adaptation.

‘Dumbo’ Trailer: Tim Burton’s Live-Action Reboot Takes Flight

The CGI elephant actually flies in Disney’s first teaser trailer for its live-action “Dumbo,” released on Wednesday.

The flight takes place at the very end of the 80 seconds of footage after the teaser promises, “A beloved tale will take you to new heights.”

Dumbo,” directed by Tim Burton and loosely inspired by the 1941 animated film, stars Danny DeVito as the owner of a struggling circus. He 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.

“We’re all family here, no matter how small,” Parker tells the sad-eyed elephant.

At the end of the trailer, Parker’s character turns out to be the key to the pachyderm’s flight, telling him, “Here, Dumbo. Show them.”

The story appears to be taking place sometime during the 19th century. The

Disney finally revealed the elephant in the room this morning when it dropped the first teaser trailer for Tim Burton's upcoming remake of the 1941 Disney animated classic Dumbo, which is slated to open March 29.

"Dumbo" Teases

by Nathaniel R

click to enlargePrediction: By 2040 Disney will have remade all of their animated features as "live-action" movies. Well, maybe not Song of the South or The Three Caballeros. Live-action is in quotes because some of the remake titles are basically still half animated -- like The Jungle Book in 2016, or Beauty and the Beast in 2017. Next up in the Disney remakes department is Tim Burton's take on Dumbo

The name Tim Burton used to automatically thrill but he lost his mojo at exactly the turn of the century (just after Sleepy Hollow in '99) and hasn't been able to get it back. He's made 10 features since and the only uncompromised / totally satisfying artistic success among them, I'd argue, is the animated features Corpse Bride (2005). And to a lesser extent Frankenweenie (2012) if we're feeling a bit generous...

Magical First Trailer For Tim Burton’s Dumbo Movie Takes Flight

That little baby elephant with the ginormous ears takes flight in today’s magical first trailer for Disney and Tim Burton’s live-action Dumbo movie.

Starring the likes of Colin Farrell, Eva Green and It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia favorite Danny DeVito as circus ringleader, Max Medici, this is a refreshing new take on the old Disney classic, and one which follows in the footsteps of other live-action remakes like Cinderella, The Jungle Book and last year’s wildly successful Beauty and the Beast.

But with its all-star cast and adorable title character, Dumbo will likely skew toward a younger audience. Although if Colin Farrell is to be believed, adults will have just as much fun basking in the Disney nostalgia come 2019.

Honestly, I was like a child in a sweet shop, I really was, I was so giddy. I had this sustained excitement during the whole thing because

Watch the First Trailer for Tim Burton's Dumbo

  • Cinelinx
This morning brings us our first look at Disney's live-action Dumbo, that's bothly enchanting and melancholic. Come inside to check it out!

To be honest, I wasn't looking forward to Dumbo all that much. The original cartoon movie isn't among my favorites, but there's something about this morning teaser trailer that has my full attention:

Tim Burton has great visual style, and his fantastical approach lends the trailer an air whimsy that makes everything mesh together really well. I'm getting distinctive Big Fish vibes (one of my favorit Burton films) and there's nothing wrong with that. Where I had no interest before, this teaser for Dumbo has me anxious for more.
