Tim Burton’s live-action film Dumbo released its first teaser trailer on Wednesday.
Backed with heavy CGI work, the elephant in Dumbo actually takes a flight that will make you marvel at it. The flight takes place at the very end of the 80 seconds of footage after the teaser promises, “A beloved tale will take you to new heights.”
Dumbo is directed by Tim Burton and is loosely inspired by the 1941 animated film. It stars Danny DeVito as the owner of a struggling circus who gives the task of taking care for a newborn elephant to former star Holt Farrier (Colin Farrell), and his children Milly (Nico Parker) and Joe (Finley Hobbins). This he does as the elephant has oversized ears that make him the butt of many jokes.
“We’re all family here, no matter how small,” Parker tells the sad-eyed elephant.
At the end of the trailer, Parker’s character turns out to be the key to the elephant’s flight as he tells him, “Here, 'Dumbo'. Show them.”
The story runs in the backdrop of the 19th century as it introduces Michael Keaton as entrepreneur VA Vandevere, Alan Arkin as Wall Street tycoon J. Griffin Remington, and Eva Green as aerial artist Colette Marchant, who’s seen swinging from a huge chandelier.
The film is produced by Justin Springer, Ehren Kruger, Katterli Frauenfelder, and Derek Frey.
