I didn’t expect to watch the live action Dumbo teaser trailer and start crying like a bambino, yet here I am crying like a bambino.
When I was a wee tot, I had a Dumbo themed room. Maybe it was circus themed, I just remember there being elephants that I called Dumbo. It was one of the VHS tapes that played on repeat. Or as much of a repeat as you can get when you have to rewind your tape each time you watch it anyway.
I tried watching it again last year and realized three things:
- Dumbo is trippy AF
- It’s also super short
- Certain things become much more sad once you’ve had your own kids
I have to believe that the live action version will have the happiest ending EVER. I’m also hoping that it stays as trippy as the first film but takes it to the next level. With Tim Burton at the helm, I’m sure I won’t be disappointed.
Plus, my favorite Batman is starring!
Check out the new Dumbo teaser trailer here and if you cry your eyes out like I just did, please let me know.
“Dumbo” flies into theaters on March 29, 2019.
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.
Directed by Tim Burton (“Alice in Wonderland,” “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory”) from a screenplay by Ehren Kruger (“Ophelia,” “Dream House”), and produced by Justin Springer (“TRON: Legacy”), Kruger, Katterli Frauenfelder (“Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children,” “Big Eyes”) and Derek Frey (“Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children,” “Frankenweenie”), “Dumbo” flies into theaters on March 29, 2019.
