  • Dumbo trailer takes elephant sadness to new CGI heights

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

All those who are familiar with the tale of Dumbo can rejoice over the fact that Disney is making a live-action adaptation of the story.

However, Dumbo will not be having Depp in the lead; instead the movie will star Colin Farrell, Michael Keaton, Danny DeVito, Eva Green and Alan Arkin. 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. But in Dumbo, everyone is flesh-colored, warm and full of hope - especially the young girl Milly (Nico Parker) who takes the lost Dumbo under her wing.

However, Dumbo's caretaker soon learns that Dreamland isn't what it appears to be.

Future 'unlimited' for Crawford after commanding Horn defeat
It's the highest praise I can give a fighter, a welterweight, that he reminds me of Sugar Ray Leonard. He also became only the fifth boxer to claim a WBO championship belt in three weight divisions.


The CGI elephant actually flies in Disney's first teaser trailer for its live-action "Dumbo", released on Wednesday.

Colin Farrell is leading this film as a widower/father of two and animal caretaker Holt, opposite the (presumably villainous) ringmaster Max, played by Danny DeVito.

'But when Holt's children discover that Dumbo can fly, persuasive entrepreneur V.A. Vandevere (Keaton) and an aerial artist named Colette Marchant (Green) swoop in to make the peculiar pachyderm a star'.

The first trailer for Burton's Dumbo, set for release in March 2019, is as sad as the original, but has the trademark dark features that go along with a Burton film.
