Let’s be honest, Disney is life. No matter how hard you try to admit it, you’d wear your Disney ears all day errrryday if you could. Of course, we all have our fave Disney movies, but there are some moments that just stick in our minds for the rest of our lives. The moment when Elsa screams ‘Let It Goooo’ when she decides to build her giant ice castle and embrace her powers (because why not?). The moment when Lady and The Tramp get a little smoochy with the spaghetti. The moment when Snow White eats the apple (we always knew they were bad for us), and the moment when Dumbo took his first flight. Thankfully, we get to see that moment all over again, because the teaser trailer for Tim Burton’s live-action Dumbo movie has been released. While it’s totally adorable, it’s also creepy AF. Check it out:
I mean, we’re crying for so many reasons right now.
Although this new movie isn’t a direct replica of the 1941 classic, it’s believed that this new Tim Burton creation will follow the loose storyline of Dumbo and his family – including THAT moment when his mother gets taken away. (*Sobs*). This new movie will follow Danny DeVito as he tries to make it in the struggling circus business. With the help of Colin Farrell, Nico Parker, Finley Hobbins and more, he takes in the adorable elephant with oversized ears and hopes that he will bring a new lease of life to his own existence, but also to his circus.
Although we don’t know much else just yet, we do know that Tim Burton will definitely make his mark on this classic tale. With movies like The Nightmare Before Christmas, Alice in Wonderland, Corpse Bride, Sweeney Todd and more on his resume, Tim hasn’t made a name for himself as the lovey-dovey Disney type who will fill our hearts with romantic songs, happy-go-lucky characters, and happily-ever-afters. You just know this movie is gonna pull on your heartstrings and make you a little creeped out at the same time. Just the way we like it!
The live-action Dumbo movie is set to be released on March 29, 2019.
