Disney’s just released a gorgeous teaser trailer for Dumbo, the live-action reimagining of the classic animated film. The teaser trailer, which is a little over a minute long, does a terrific job of showing how the tiny elephant will be brought to life on the screen.
The first official Dumbo trailer is backed by an original recording of “Baby Mine” performed by Norwegian singer-songwriter Aurora. The 1941 animated film won an Academy Award in the Best Scoring of a Musical Picture and “Baby Mine” was nominated in the Best Original Song category.
Tim Burton directs the new take on the classic story. Ehren Kruger wrote the screenplay and Justin Springer, Ehren Kruger, Katterli Frauenfelder, and Derek Frey served as producers. Nigel Gostelow executive produced the much-anticipated live-action film.
The cast of the new Dumbo includes Colin Farrell (The Killing of a Sacred Deer), Michael Keaton (Spider-Man: Homecoming), Danny DeVito (It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia), Eva Green (Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children), Alan Arkin, Finley Hobbins, and Nico Parker.
Disney will release Dumbo in theaters on March 29, 2019.
The Plot: From Disney and visionary director Tim Burton, the all-new grand live-action adventure Dumbo expands on the beloved classic story where differences are celebrated, family is cherished and dreams take flight. Circus owner Max Medici (Danny DeVito) 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 in an already struggling circus. But when they discover that Dumbo can fly, the circus makes an incredible comeback, attracting persuasive entrepreneur V.A. Vandevere (Michael Keaton), who recruits the peculiar pachyderm for his newest, larger-than-life entertainment venture, Dreamland.
Dumbo soars to new heights alongside a charming and spectacular aerial artist, Colette Marchant (Eva Green), until Holt learns that beneath its shiny veneer, Dreamland is full of dark secrets.
