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. Premieres in U.S. theatres March 29, 2019.
SYNOPSIS: "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."
Because I am still holding out for HOPE that Tim Burton returns to form where I once revered his films, but somehow that quirk wore off, to be replaced by glossy banality ... or more likely I've adulted and the awe-n-wonder was short lived? Will DUMBO do the trick? I've been waiting for nearly two decades, to be honest, and have been consistently disappointed (not "devastated" though), as is "life", no doubt ... Or maybe I should just enjoy it for what it is? And will be?
