A Trailer Breakdown of Tim Burton’s Take on Disney’s Dumbo
Audiences got their first look at the film in a recent teaser trailer and we are sure that our favorite elephant is in capable hands and here’s why:
There were chills and goose bumps everywhere, when the opening sequence consisted of a modern rendition of the OG film’s signature ballad, “Baby Mine” in the background.
The trailer features our beloved Dumbo hiding under a stack of hay – until he is discovered by Holt Farrier (Colin Farrel) and his two kids, Milly (Nico Parker) and Joe (Finley Hobbins).
The remake of the Disney classic will focus around the family as they are appointed by circus owner Max Medici (Danny DeVito) to look after the baby elephant.
As far as the live adaptation shows, Dumbo is still the same floppy-eared baby elephant that we all know and love. But just like the Disney classic, Dumbo is the subject of being ridiculed in a circus. But there is potential in the success of the circus after they find out that Dumbo can fly!
In the latter part of the trailer, we get glimpses of the ringmaster V.A (Michael Keaton) and aerial artist Collete Marchant (Eva Green). There are also shots of the iconic pink elephants that Dumbo sees, and of course, a clip of him flying across the circus tent.
