'Dumbo': First Image Revealed as Cast and Release Date Are Confirmed

What's old is new Dumbo will be a live-action version of the 1941 animated Disney classic

Tim Burtons live- action adaptation of the 1941 animated classic, "Dumbo", will open in theaters on March 29, 2019.

The film will feature young actors Finley Hobbins and Nico Parker (Thandie Newton's daughter), in their first ever film roles, as Holt's children. That being said: here is to hoping that the live-action Dumbo includes some version of the "Pink Elephants on Parade" sequence from the 1941 animated film, if only so that audiences everywhere can watch Burton put his own idiosyncratic spin on that infamously trippy musical number. But it is the Casey Jr. train and the concept art that tells us a lot about the world that Burton is creating.

There's still a while before it flies into cinemas, but we now know the Dumbo remake has landed a cast including Colin Farrell, Michael Keaton and Danny DeVito.

The film's official synopsis states: 'Circus owner Max Medici (DeVito) enlists Holt to care for a newborn elephant whose oversized ears make him a laughing stock in an already struggling circus.

Eva Green (Mrs. Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children) is playing a French trapeze artist named Colette who is employed by the movie's villain.

Roshan Seth, DeObia Oparei, Sharon Rooney and Douglas Reith are also set to join the cast.

Production has just begin on the film and the video featured footage from the set, which, showed off a circus.

Will Burton reprise the sequence with another singalong?

Dumbo continues Disney's latest trend of bringing live-action versions of its beloved properties to life, with The Jungle Book and Beauty and the Beast being the most recent additions to an ever-growing catalog. His surreal spin would certainly have Dumbo fans grinning from big ear to big ear.

Among the slew of announcements made at D23, Deadline reports that Disney's live-action DUMBO now has a release date.
