Walt Disney Pictures has released a new international poster for its upcoming live-action film Dumbo, featuring our favourite adorable flying elephant.
2019 seems to be the year of live-action Disney reboots. Dumbo is going to be the first to soar into theaters on 29 March, followed by Aladdin and The Lion King in summer.
The official synopsis for Dumbo tells a slightly different story than the original animated film. Rather than simply a young elephant trying to understand the circus, the new Dumbo is building a much bigger world around the beloved character. Here’s the synopsis :
From Disney and visionary director Tim Burton, Dumbo expands on the beloved classic story where differences are celebrated, family is cherished and dreams take flight.
Circus owner Max Medici (Danny DeVito) enlists former star Holt Farrier (Colin Farrell) and his children Milly (Nico Parker) and Joe (Finley Hobbins) to care for a newborn elephant whose oversized ears make him a laughingstock in an already struggling circus. But when they discover that Dumbo can fly, the circus makes an incredible comeback, attracting persuasive entrepreneur V.A. Vandevere (Michael Keaton), who recruits the peculiar pachyderm for his newest, larger-than-life entertainment venture, Dreamland. Dumbo soars to new heights alongside a charming and spectacular aerial artist, Colette Marchant (Eva Green), until Holt learns that beneath its shiny veneer, Dreamland is full of dark secrets.
Dumbo has a notable cast that includes Colin Farrell, Michael Keaton, Danny DeVito, Eva Green, Joseph Gatt, DeObia Oparei, Roshan Seth, Sharon Rooney, Alan Arkin and Douglas Reith as well as newcomers Nico Parker and Finley Hobbins.
