The official trailer of Dumbo debuted just seconds ago during ABC’s coverage of the “52nd Annual CMA Awards”!
Check it out:
The official synopsis reads:
Watch the new trailer for Dumbo, and see the film when it soars to theatres March 29, 2019! From Disney and visionary director Tim Burton, “Dumbo” expands on the beloved classic story where differences are celebrated, family is cherished and dreams take flight. A new trailer, images, and poster are now available. The trailer features Colin Farrell, Michael Keaton, Danny DeVito, Eva Green, Finley Hobbins, and Nico Parker.
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.
Earlier today, the official poster debuted, as well:
What a turnaround in terms of trailers…
The trailer for Toy Story 4 had me spinning – literally.
But this one brought me closer to a film I’ve not been very convinced about. Dumbo was a great animated movie, but the pathos in the original limited my childhood viewings (similar to Bambi).
Here’s hoping my family and I only have to bring a few tissues with us to the cinema.
