Some people think the new live-action Disney movies lack the warmth and magic of the original animated versions, but those people are wet blankets. Jungle Book was awesome, Cinderella and Beauty and the Beast were perfectly fine, Pete’s Dragon was better than expected, and Christopher Robin, Mary Poppins Returns and now Dumbo all look like winners.
Dumbo, set to release in March of next year, brings visionary director Tim Burton to the table. It looks like a natural fit. Colin Farrell is our star here (human star, at least), with Danny DeVito, Eva Green and Michael Keaton along for the ride, too.
Stay for the end of the trailer, by the way. There’s the tiniest glimpse of Dumbo flying, and yeesh, gave us goosebumps. Disney still has it.
