Watch Dumbo fly in the first teaser trailer for the live-action remake

Cape Town – Disney has just released the first teaser trailer for the live-action remake of Dumbo.

Directed by Tim Burton the reimagining of the classic tale centres on Holt Farrier (Colin Farrell), a former circus star and war-veteran is charged by circus owner Max Medici (DeVito) to take care of a newborn elephant whose oversized ears make him a laughingstock of 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) and an aerial artist named Colette Marchant (Eva Green), who swoop in to make the peculiar pachyderm a star.


Dumbo is scheduled to be released on Friday, 29 March 2019.
