The latest classic animated Disney film getting the "live-action" treatment is the Mouse House's 1941 classic Dumbo, this time directed by Tim BurtonÂ with a score by Danny Elfman. Although fans were skeptical when it was announced, based on the decidedly mixed reaction that Burton's Alice in Wonderland received several years ago, the emotional first teaser trailer gave just about everyone the feels. Folks seem to be genuinely excited for this new take on everyone's favorite flying elephant.Now, a new trailer has dropped, giving us a more expansive glimpse into Dumbo's colorful circus world.
The new DumboÂ will have Burton working with many of his favorite collaborators:Â Eva Green, who appeared in both Dark Shadows andÂ Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, and both Michael Keaton and Danny DeVitoÂ in something of a Batman Returns reunion (too bad they couldn't find a part for Michelle Pfeiffer). Working with Burton for the first time is Colin Farrell, who plays a war veteran and former circus star whoseÂ two children befriend Dumbo.Dumbo is the latest in a very successful line of live-action adaptations of animated classics, which has become as sure-fire a brand for Disney as Star Wars or Marvel. 2019 sees not only the release of Dumbo, but also the live-action adaptations of Aladdin and The Lion King. And there are definitely more in the pipeline, as plans have been announced for Mulan, The Little Mermaid, and several others. This train isn't slowing down anytime soon, folks.You can view several newly released images from the filmÂ down below in our gallery:What did you think of the latest trailer for Dumbo?
