Disney Just Dropped A Brand New Trailer For The Live-Action 'Dumbo'

Disney has just released a brand new trailer for Tim Burton's live-action Dumbo and, predictably, it will trigger a rollercoaster of emotions.

The new 2.20 trailer gives us a more detailed look into what to expect from the remake, due in cinemas this March.

The film follows Holt Farrier (Colin Farrell) and circus owner Max Medici (Danny DeVito) as they try to transform a failing circus with a charismatic entrepreneur V.A. Vandevere (Michael Keaton) being prepared to do anything to transform it.

That means selling on the mother of the eponymous Dumbo and anyone who has watched the original will admit that the original version of this scene has stayed with them forever.

We also see Dumbo ridiculed for his big ears and bullied by those who are looking to exploit him.

Despite being a Disney film, the trailer confirms the film will have Tim Burton's trademark style stamped all over it and the director brings magical and surreal elements to the new version. The haunting music of Aurora's 'Baby Mine' soundtracks the trailer.

Along with the trailer, Disney also released a new poster, which is slightly less upsetting.

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly earlier this year, Colin Farrell said: "Honestly, I was like a child in a sweet shop, I really was, I was so giddy.

"I had this sustained excitement during the whole thing because the sets we were working on were extraordinary, the story was so sweet, Tim was such a dream, the cast was so lovely.

"It's also nice to do something that my children can see."
