Dumbo Live Action Remake Cast, Release Date Revealed

  • Production starts for live-action reimagining of Disney's Dumbo!

This weekend's D23, for example, plunged audiences straight into the depth of its upcoming catalogue; Mena Massoud and Naomi Scott were announced as Aladdin and Jasmine in Guy Ritchie's remake of the film, and the panel audience was shown a near shot-for-shot recreation of "The Circle of Life" from Jon Favreau's The Lion King.

Dumbo soars into theaters on March 29th, 2019.

Disney also revealed a maquette used to model the CGI Dumbo for the live-action film at the event on Saturday.

This project joins Disney's ever growing franchise of live-action reboots which has seen "Maleficent", "Cinderella", "The Jungle Book" and most recently, the box office smash "Beauty and the Beast".

Well, they've made a decision to take a slightly different route for the upcoming remake of 1941's Dumbo, recruiting director Tim Burton to put a unique twist of the children's story. If you saw Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, then you will recognize some of the aesthetical similarities.

And now the live-action version of the Disney classic Dumbo has just started filming, according to the studio.

The film features Colin Farrell as Holt Farrier, a former circus star and war-veteran charged with the care of a newborn elephant whose oversized ears make him a laughingstock of an already struggling circus.

Burton, writer Ehren Kruger (the Transformers sequels), and producer Justin Springer (TRON: Legacy) are looking to "add a unique family story that parallels Dumbo's journey" and pad out the 1941 film's hour-long runtime with new material that "deepens the circus aspect of the story".

Danny DeVito, who played the Penguin in Burton's 1992 film Batman Returns, will play Max Medici, the owner of the small circus at the heart of the film. Michael Keaton has also been cast as entrepreneur V.A. Vandevere and Eva Green will play aerial artist Colette Marchant.
