Did you know we’re getting a Dumbo live-action re-telling? Of course you did. But did you know the big names that are set to star on the Tim Burton helmed remake?
Well, I’m going to go over them anyway, even if you did. Because wow – the names.
Colin Farrell. Joseph Gatt. Michael Keaton. Danny DeVito. Eva Green. Those are all big names, household names. And they make us even more excited for this re-telling of a classic.
The film also stars DeObia Oparei, Nico Parker, Finley Hobbins, Roshan Seth, Sharon Rooney and Douglas Reith. It will still be based on the classic animated 1941. The script is set to be written by Ehren Kruger (Transformers 3 & 4).
Here’s the official synopsis for the movie, released by Disney:
Disney’s new live-action feature film Dumbo introduces Holt Farrier (Farrell), a former circus star who finds his life turned upside down when he returns from the war. Circus owner Max Medici (DeVito) enlists Holt to care for a newborn elephant whose oversized ears make him a laughingstock in an already struggling circus. But when Holt’s children (Parker and Hobbins) discover that Dumbo can fly, persuasive entrepreneur V.A. Vandevere (Keaton) and an aerial artist named Colette Marchant (Green) swoop in to make the peculiar pachyderm a star.
Dumbo is set to be released on March 29, 2019.
