AceShowbiz - The first full trailer for "Dumbo" was released during the live broadcast of the 2018 Country Music Awards on Wednesday, November 14. After introducing the flying elephant in the previously released teaser, the new video teases the plotline.
The adorable baby elephant is ridiculed for his big ears and no one sees his potential until he meets the Farrier children. Dumbo looks downcast after he's separated from his mother, while he's facing his nerve-wracking performance as part of the Dreamland circus.
A fire breaks out in the circus, forcing people to flee. Holt Farrier (Colin Farrell), meanwhile, is seen riding a horse to the opposite direction, possibly to save his children Milly (Nico Parker) and Joe (Finley Hobbins), who are still inside the arena.
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. In the live-action re-imagining of Walt Disney's 1941 animated film of the same name, circus owner Max Medici (Danny DeVito) enlists former star Holt Farrier and his children Milly and Joe 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.
Alan Arkin stars as Wall Street tycoon J. Griffin Remington, with DeObia Oparei and Joseph Gatt also joining the cast. The movie is based upon a storyline written by Helen Aberson with a screenplay written by Ehren Kruger.
The fantasy adventure film is set to soar in U.S. theaters on March 29, 2019.
