One of my favorite movies growing up was Dumbo. I must have watched it a thousand times. In fact, my young daughters have even seen it a few times (and they love it too). I just adore the moral and story behind it. So when I heard Disney was doing a reimagining I was thrilled. Then I heard one of my favorite directors, Tim Burton, was at the helm and I could barely contain my excitement. Well, this morning the official teaser trailer dropped and it is everything. I could not have asked for more (but really, give me more!!). And the new poster?! My heart is fluttering and my eyes are tearing up. WOW. Just wow.
As you probably know, I have been doing trailer reaction videos a lot over on my YouTube channel. So of course when I saw the teaser was out this morning, I had to do one. This is pre-shower guys so please, no judgement. I had literally just woken up. Enjoy!
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.
Tim Burton’s all-new live-action Dumbo coming to theatres March 2019.
