Disney releases teaser trailer for 'Dumbo'

Disney releases teaser trailer for 'Dumbo'

This new Disney Dumbo adventure features an exciting ensemble cast: Danny DeVito, Eva Green, Colin Farrell, Nico Parker, Finley Hobbins, Alan Arkin, Joseph Gatt, Sandy Martin, with Michael Keaton as the evil entrepreneur villain. And that's good. Burton takes Dumbo to the turn of the 20th century, dousing the film with Gilded Age aesthetics and callbacks to the era of traveling circuses. 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. In the clip, which lasts only one minute and 20 seconds, we meet the adorable elephant with the plus-sized ears and even see him take flight.

When Disney first started remaking some of their classic animated movies as live-action blockbusters, there were some that scoffed at the idea. Many of those are slated to arrive soon, including updated versions of The Lion King, Mulan, and Aladdin, but perhaps none of those forthcoming projects has the star power of Dumbo, whose first trailer indicates that it'll be right in line with its director's idiosyncratic body of work.

The original Dumbo was only 64 minutes long, an intentionally short and rather simplistic film made nearly exclusively to balance out the losses Disney incurred on the elaborate Fantasia.

"Dumbo" will be released nationwide March 29.

The CGI elephant actually flies in Disney's first teaser trailer for its live-action "Dumbo", released on Wednesday. "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".
