    Dumbo (2019)

    Release date: March 29, 2019
    Studio: Walt Disney Pictures
    Director: Tim Burton
    MPAA Rating: N/A
    Screenwriter: Ehren Kruger
    Starring: Colin Farrell, Michael Keaton, Danny DeVito, Eva Green, Nico Parker Rooney, Douglas Reith, Joseph Gatt, Alan Arkin
    Genre: Fantasy, Family

    Plot Summary: 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.

    So far Tom Hanks and Will Smith have been offered roles. Would love to see them involved.

    Apparently Tom Hanks has been offered the role of lead villain, which sounds good until you realize this is a remake of Dumbo directed by Tim Burton.

    So is this going to be a dark version of the story? I mean Tim Burton and happy colors don't mix well together.

    No no no no...

    There is no interest from me whatsoever to see a remake of a near-masterpiece in Dumbo. Sure it's Tim Burton and I'm sure it'll be aesthetically pleasing, but goodness god how can it possibly capture the magic of the original?

    Production begins on Tim Burton’s live-action Dumbo!



    Walt Disney Studios has announced that production is underway for the live-action Dumbo, reimagining Disney’s 1941 animated classic. Check out the first set photo in the gallery below, and read more new details about the film!

    Directed by visionary filmmaker Tim Burton (Alice in Wonderland, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory), the film stars Golden Globe winner Colin Farrell (In Bruges, The Lobster), Golden Globe winner Michael Keaton (Birdman, Beetlejuice), Emmy and Golden Globe winner Danny DeVito (Batman Returns, Big Fish), BAFTA Award winner and Golden Globe nominee Eva Green (Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, Dark Shadows), and introduces Nico Parker and Finley Hobbins in their first film roles. The cast also includes Roshan Seth, DeObia Oparei, Sharon Rooney and Douglas Reith.

    Disney’s new live-action feature film Dumbo introduces Holt Farrier (Farrell), a former circus star who finds his life turned upside down when he returns from the war. Circus owner Max Medici (DeVito) enlists Holt to care for a newborn elephant whose oversized ears make him a laughingstock in an already struggling circus. But when Holt’s children (Parker and Hobbins) discover that Dumbo can fly, persuasive entrepreneur V.A. Vandevere (Keaton) and an aerial artist named Colette Marchant (Green) swoop in to make the peculiar pachyderm a star.

    Katterli Frauenfelder (Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, Big Eyes), Derek Frey (Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, Frankenweenie), Ehren Kruger (Ophelia, Dream House) and Justin Springer (TRON: Legacy) are producing from a screenplay by Kruger. Nigel Gostelow (Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, Dark Shadows) is the executive producer.

    Dumbo is slated for release on March 29, 2019.

    Walt Disney’s classic animated tale Dumbo, which opened Oct. 23, 1941, won an Oscar for best scoring of a musical picture and was nominated for best original song for “Baby Mine.”

    The creative team includes cinematographer Ben Davis, BSC (Doctor Strange, Guardians of the Galaxy), Oscar winning production designer Rick Heinrichs (Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Dark Shadows), four-time Oscar-winning costume designer Colleen Atwood (Alice in Wonderland, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them), editor Chris Lebenzon, ACE (Alice in Wonderland, Maleficent) and BAFTA Award-winning make-up designer Paul Gooch (Alice in Wonderland, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children).

    Utilizing state-of-the-art visual effects to portray Dumbo and many of his four-legged counterparts, Dumbo will be filmed entirely in England, both at Pinewood Studios and Cardington Studios.
    Pretty awesome cast, Tim Burton though might scare some folks.

    Pretty sure the moment when Dumbo says goodbye to his Mother it's going to make me tear up like in the Animated version of the film.

    The original was already pretty dark when you pay close attention to it.

    Glad to see Keaton and Burton working together again. Throw in Danny Devito for the Batman Returns reunion.
