A new 'Dumbo' sneak peak teases next week's high flying adventure

One week from today, Walt Disney Pictures is bringing some very familiar ears back to the big screen with a new big screen take on their 1941 animated classic, “Dumbo”. Today, the studio has released a “sneak peek,” which offers new footage from the fantastical  adventure. Check it out in the player below!

The new “Dumbo” expands on the original story in which differences are celebrated, family is cherished and dreams take flight. 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.

Directed by Burton from a screenplay by Ehren Kruger (“Ophelia,” “Dream House”) and produced by Justin Springer (“TRON: Legacy”), Kruger, Katterli Frauenfelder (“Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children,” “Big Eyes”) and Derek Frey (“Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children,” “Frankenweenie”), “Dumbo” flies into theaters March 29, 2019.
