Dumbo Soars in Teaser Trailer For Tim Burton's Live-Action Remake

Tim Burton, obviously, is definitely the right person for the job when it comes to reviving Disney's Dumbo vibes.

At the end of the trailer, Parker's character turns out to be the key to the pachyderm's flight, telling him, "Here, Dumbo".

The 1941 classic was the story of a baby elephant who becomes the laughing stock of a circus because of his oversized ears but all of that changes once it is discovered that Dumbo can actually fly.

With the likes of The Jungle Book and Beauty and the Beast continuing to prove box office gold, Disney is continuing to remake its classics in live-action (or, photoreal-animated) form - and its latest offers an intriguing pairing of material and director. And that's good. Burton takes Dumbo to the turn of the 20th century, dousing the film with Gilded Age aesthetics and callbacks to the era of traveling circuses. Burton directs Eva Green, Danny DeVito, Colin Farrell and Michael Keaton, as well as some pink elephants.

Trump renews Twitter assault on OPEC, pushing to cut oil prices
The oil supply deal is set to continue through the end of 2018, but plans for its continuation were unclear for next year. After Trump tweeted his unhappiness with the price of oil in April, the price of oil fell.

The live-action adaptation stars Colin Farrell, Michael Keaton, Danny DeVito and Eva Green among others.

After finding fame at the circus, Dumbo soars to new heights alongside a charming and spectacular aerial artist in a new entertainment venture called Dreamland, according to the Disney Movie Trailer YouTube page.

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.
