As you can see from this beautiful & simple poster, Disney has decided to reimagine the 1941 classic Dumbo! The story will retold by the talented and peculiar director (and my personal favorite) Tim Burton! He is known for Edward Scissorhands, Beatlejuice, Alice in Wonderland 2010, Corpse Bride, and Nightmare Before Christmas! You know this version of Dumbo will be visually stunning.
Along with our favorite little elephant Dumbo, there will be some serious star power to this movie. The film will include Colin Farrell, Michael Keaton, Danny DeVito, and many more.
Colin Farrell will play character Holt Farrier. He is a war veteran who has lost an arm in battle. He is a former circus star who is hired to care for the newborn elephant who his two children befriend. They adopt this little elephant and a beautiful friendship develops.
I love to see Danny DeVito back in a Ring Masters Costume! He did a stellar job as a circus master in my favorite movie Big Fish in 2003. Which was also coincidentally directed by Tim Burton!
Everyone knows the original story of little Dumbo who is a young elephant born with oversized ears. These ears are seen as a deformity at first but then over time, he discovers that his ears enable him to FLY. In this movie, the circus is struggling. The Circus plans a new project in efforts to revitalize it. Dumbo and his friends uncover some dark secrets within those shiny carnival tents. #plottwist
Dumbo has always held a special place in my heart. As a child I had huge ears that stuck out sideways. The kids at school used to call me Dumbo. It became my favorite movie and I could relate to Dumbo’s outsider feeling. I still have the stuffed Dumbo that I slept with as a child. This movie remake is one that I cannot miss! It means so much more to me than just another Disney movie. It is a pipeline to my childhood. Thanks Tim Burton!
Dumbo will be released March 29, 2019
