Dumbo has been one of Disney's classic stories told on screen, with the 1941 movie still considered one of the best-animated flicks made in Hollywood. The tale of a flying baby elephant trapped in a circus and looking to be reunited with his separated mother has the trappings to make you smile through your tears. If you had missed out on the animated flick, fret not. For Tim Burton, the director who make classics like Edward Scissorhands and Beetlejuice and the less-appreciated Alice in Wonderland remake, is now making a live-action adaptation of the film that features digitally created Dumbo surrounded by real actors. Dumbo Teaser Trailer: Tim Burton's Eye for Visual Flair Makes The Tale of Disney's Lovable Big-Eared Elephant Appealing.
The trailer of the film is out, and it looks lovely to the eyes, and touching to the heart. The movie looks to be a faithful adaptation of the classic, as we see Dumbo in the possession of a circus, owned by Danny DeVito's characters. Colin Farrell plays the one-armed trainer for Dumbo, whose kids discover that the little elephant can fly. When he gets separated from his mother, the kids decide to get him back with her. However, when Dumbo's flying skills make him the talk of the town, that mission seems impossible when vested interests are looking to make profits out of the pitiable animal.

The special effects look really good, especially how Dumbo is rendered. There are some very eye-pleasing visuals, which of course, is trademark Tim Burton. But the best thing about the trailer is that we really feel for the protagonists.

Here's the official synopsis - "Circus owner Max Medici (Danny DeVito) enlists former star Holt Farrier (Colin Farrell) and his children Milly (Nico Parker) and Joe (Finley Hobbins) 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 (Michael Keaton), 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 (Eva Green), until Holt learns that beneath its shiny veneer, Dreamland is full of dark secrets."
