It’s a childhood treasure and now it’s coming back in the form of live-action!
I guess I didn’t realize that the original Dumbo dates back to 1941, but Tim Burton is a genius and I can’t wait for this one! We’ve seen his magnificent work with Edward Scissorhands and Alice in Wonderland… so I have no doubt this one will be spectacular!
This new version will feature stars Colin Farrell as Holt Farrier (a former horse showman who returns from the war a widower to his two children and a circus struggling to survive). The circus’ owner, Max Medici (played by Danny DeVito), buys a pregnant elephant, and thus Dumbo enters their lives.
Dumbo flies into theaters in March 2019.
