Fans have some big questions after the first trailer for Disney and‘s live-action “Dumbo”:
• Where’s Timothy Q. Mouse? Has he been humanized?
• Also, how many giant boxes of tissues will we need at the theater? At least two?
The 2019 “Dumbo” trailer includes several callbacks to Disney’s, including a haunting new cover of “Baby Mine” (from singer Aurora) to give you chills, and mayyyyyybe start the waterworks already. Unless that’s just us.
Here’s the live-action film’s synopsis:
“From Disney and visionary director Tim Burton, the all-new grand live-action adventure ‘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.”
Don’t you hurt that magical flying elephant angel!
