The new trailer for Tim Burton’s Dumbo has dropped.
Next month, Disney are taking us all back to our childhoods by releasing a live-action version of Dumbo. Today, Disney released a brand new trailer for everyone’s favourite big-eared elephant ahead of the release of the film and it’s safe to say that it is getting a lot of people excited ahead of the release of the film.
In the new trailer, we get to see an extended look at circus owner Max Medici (Danny DeVito) voice his disapproval at the newborn baby elephant and mocking Dumbo for his big ears. We also see DeVito give Colin Farrell, who plays former circus star Holt Farrier an ultimatum to get rid of Dumbo’s oversized ears, as Farrier’s children make an amazing discovery…Dumbo can fly! The trailer also gives us a closer look at the comedy and style of Burton’s film and it looks like the perfect way to bring one of Disney’s biggest family films back to life.
Check out the brand new trailer below:
For those of you who haven’t seen the original, and seriously, if you haven’t then what have you been doing?? The official synopsis of the film says: “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 laughing stock 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”.
Dumbo is set for release next month by Walt Disney Studios and comes a couple of months prior to another huge release for Disney, with the remake of The Lion King and Toy Story 4 also set for release this year.
