Several Disney live-action remakes are dropping this year and the first one, Dumbo, is due out this March. Dumbo comes out this spring and Disney has been low key marketing it. Whether or not there is an audience for another Disney remake is up in the air. Dumbo doesn’t quite have the fandom behind it that movies like Beauty and the Beast did. We’ll have to see but for now, we have a new international poster that was shared on the official Disney Twitter account. It’s another great look at Dumbo and while the elephant looks great in a still whether or not it looks good in motion is anyone’s guess at this point.
Summary: Circus owner Max Medici enlists former star Holt Farrier and his children Milly and Joe 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, 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, until Holt learns that beneath its shiny veneer, Dreamland is full of dark secrets.
Dumbo, directed by Tim Burton, stars Colin Farrell, Nico Parker, Finley Hobbins, Michael Keaton, Danny DeVito and Eva Green. It will be released on March 29th, 2019.
