March 2019


The first teaser trailer for Dumbo has landed, and it will give fans chills. The sneak peek at Tim Burton's upcoming live-action movie reveals a darker version of the beloved circus elephant than fans are accustomed to, but then again, it is a Tim Burton film and he loves reimagining the Disney classics. The teaser also shows the all-star cast of Colin Farrell, Michael Keaton, Danny DeVito, Eva Green and Alan Arkin.

We're all family here, no matter how small.

Farrell stars as Holt Farrier, a former circus star who returns home from war and finds work with a Max Medici's (DeVito) struggling circus troupe. One day Holt stumbles upon a newborn elephant, Dumbo, whose very small stature and huge ears become the main comedic focus of their show. That all changes once they discover Dumbo can actually fly.
