Tim Burton's DUMBO Gets a Poster and The New Trailer is Coming Tonight!
Disney has released a new poster for director Tim Burton’s live-action adaptation of the classic animated film Dumbo. It’s also been announced that the new trailer for the film will air tonight during the CMA Awards on ABC. I’m sure it will pop up online around the same time, so keep a look out for that!
I’m actually really excited about this movie. As a long-time fan of Burton, Dumbo seems like the perfect Disney project for him to take on and I’ve liked what I’ve seen from it so far. I also love the cast that he managed to bring together for the film.
We’ll get a better look at the movie later on tonight! Here’s the synopsis:
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.
Dumbo was written by Ehren Kruger (Ophelia, Dream House) and it’s set to fly into theater on March 29, 2019.
