The Internet Reacts to Sad Clown Dumbo

Nov 15 2018 -- 11:22 AM

Tim Burton has been creeping us out since the '80s so it's only fitting that the first trailer for his reimagining of Dumbo is nothing less than terrifying. The live action Disney remake looks like it will leave us all as emotional wrecks, just like the original. The adaptation also happens to star Michael Keaton and Danny DeVito which has a lot of the internet wondering about whether this is a covert Batman Returns continuation. Basically, the first full-length trailer's bringing out the weird, wonderful, and very very sad, so we've composed a collection of some of the best responses just for you.

I pretend I’m not hurt, I walk about the world like I’m having fun.

It is a little... weird.
