Tim Burton’s first ‘Dumbo’ trailer stirs emotions, shows off the circus

Disney is riding the success of live-action versions of CinderellaMaleficentJungle Book and Beauty and the Beast, releasing the official teaser trailer for Dumbo, the newest addition to that library.

Dumbo is directed by Tim Burton, the film stars Colin Farrell, Danny DeVito and Michael Keaton. Check out the footage at the bottom.

Dumbo centers on a former circus star named Holt, played by Farrell, who’s life is turned upside down when he returns home from the war. Holt, a widowed father of two kids, played by newcomers Nico Parker and Finley Hobbins, rejoins a troupe led by Max Medici (DeVito). Holt becomes the carer of a newborn elephant who is the laughing stock of the circus because of his enormous ears.

When word gets out that Dumbo can fly, V.A. Vandevere (Keaton) and Colette Marchant (Eva Green) take it upon themselves to make the little elephant a star/exploit him. The full synopsis is at the bottom.

Roshan Seth, Sharon Rooney, and Douglas Reith have also joined the cast in undisclosed roles. DeObia Oparei will play Rongo.

Ehren Kruger (the Transformers sequels) wrote the screenplay and will produce alongside Derek Frey (Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, Frankenweenie), Katterli Frauenfelder (Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, Big Eyes) and Justin Springer (Tron: Legacy).

Dumbo is set to hit theaters on March 29, 2019.

Synopsis: 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.
