Who can forget Disney classic Dumbo? A young elephant with ears bigger than his entire body and how everyone used to laugh at him, until one day when he used the same big ears to fly. This story taught many young kids how nothing is ugly about you and how anything can be achieved if one tries and tries hard enough for it. Much like every other Disney classic, even this one had a huge impact on its audience, especially its young audience.
Now, Disney is all in with their live-action trail and here’s the first Dumbo teaser by the makers. Disney has relied on Tim Burton to bring this classic into action and swoon the audience with its charm and cuteness.
The synopsis of this Dumbo Teaser reads, “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 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.”
