The Trailer For "Dumbo" Is Here and Be Warned, You Will Cry

Disney releases teaser for live action Dumbo and we're not crying you're crying

Oh we’re crying already at the new Dumbo

While Burton and Depp seem to be attached at the hip, Depp's frequent over-costumed mugging has produced some of the least enjoyable Burton films.

Every one of Disney's live-action "reimaginings" have made more money at the box office than the title before it. As fellow Burton aficionados will note, this doesn't mark the first time we've seen Keaton and DeVito in a Burton production, as the two previously gave still unmatched performances as Batman and Penguin in Batman Returns.

While some might have been anxious about how Dumbo would translate into a live action adaptation, the teaser show's there's nothing to worry about. The screenplay of Dumbo is written by Ehren Kruger. It's also a surprising departure for Burton, whose name has become synonymous with a Gothic flair and kabuki-mask faces.

The trailer features clips of Dumbo taking flight and Norwegian pop star Aurora singing "Baby Mine". Though it seems to follow a similar story to the 1941 animated classic, this reimagining doesn't appear to focus on the other animals in Dumbo's life.

However, Dumbo's caretaker soon learns that Dreamland isn't what it appears to be. Just over nine months before it hits the big screen, the first footage from the movie, directed by Tim Burton, has now been revealed in a short teaser trailer.

Tim Burton's all-new live-action "Dumbo" soars into theatres March 2019. Holt and his children, newcomers Nico Parker and Finley Hobbins, are tasked with carrying for the title newborn by snappily dressed circus owner Max Medici (Danny DeVito). "But when Holt's children discover that Dumbo can fly, entrepeneur V.A. Vandevere (Michael Keaton), and aerial artist Colette Marchant (Eva Green) swoop in to make the little elephant a star".
