June 13, 2018 | Posted by Joseph Lee

Walt Disney Pictures has released the first trailer and poster for their live-action remake of the 1941 animated classic Dumbo. It was directed by Tim Burton from a script by Ehren Kruger. Justin Springer, Kruger, Katterli Frauenfelder and Derek Frey are the producers. It will be released on March 29, 2019.

Here’s a 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.
