Of all of Disney’s live action remakes, Dumbo seems to be one of the oddest. Granted, you figure that Disney will eventually get around to adapting all of their classics into live-action, but the original Dumbo seems to be a bit to fantastical to adapt in a straightforward manner. Add to that the adaptation is being directed by Tim Burton, the master of the weird and the macabre, it just gets weirder. The concept might be weird but it isn’t all that macabre.
So a teaser trailer would be a good thing to see right now, and luckily, we got one. We get to see how Dumbo looks in CGI, a brief glimpse of Burton’s frequent collaborators Danny DeVito and Michael Keaton, and a small taste of what the plot will be.
Dumbo is set to arrive in theaters on March 29, 2019.
