Containing a few cute nods to the OG 1941 animated movie, such as the mouse decked out in a marching band ’fit and a magic black feather , the trailer packs in a lot of dream-like charm alongside some typically Burton-esque dark drama. If you’re unfamiliar with the source material, the story follows newborn elephant Dumbo, whose oversized ears render him the butt of all jokes at the circus — until it’s discovered he can fly.
The trailer shows Colin Farrell, Michael Keaton, Danny DeVito, and Eva Green in the main roles alongside newcomers Nico Parker and Finley Hobbins.
Dumbo arrives in theaters on March 29, 2019. Will you be watching? Let us know in the comments.
