With only about a month and a half left until the premiere of Disney's live-action remake of Dumbo, the titular elephant has taken flight in a brand-new international trailer for the film.
The footage gives viewers a glimpse of what’s shaping up to be a heartwarming retelling of a classic favorite that also embraces the melancholy aspects of the story. It features the beloved, big-eared baby elephant’s first time taking flight, and we get to see plenty of Danny Devito’s charmingly opportunistic ringmaster.
Milly Farrier, played by Nico Parker, is seen encouraging Dumbo, frequently affirming the film’s message that what the world tells you are your faults can often actually be unique strengths.
This is a big year for live-action Disney remakes, with Dumbo arriving in March, Aladdin hitting theaters in May and The Lion King in July. Not to mention new additions to popular franchises, with Toy Story 4 and Frozen 2 also being released this year.
Dumbo, directed by Tim Burton, stars Danny DeVito, Eva Green, Colin Farrell, Michael Keaton and Alan Arkin. The film flies into theaters March 29.
