Tim Burton's live-action 'Dumbo' gets first teaser trailer

Dumbo the elephant is flying back to the big screen this time with a Tim Burton twist

But Burton's Disney adaptation of Dumbo surprisingly reigns back the darkness and gives us a little more of that childhood awe in the Dumbo trailer. Dumbo himself looks adorable too, and there's a new version of tearjerking song Baby Mine - if you've forgotten how upsetting the original story is, you might want to gather your emotions before heading into the multiplexes for this one. Burton personally chose the singer-songwriter to be involved in the film. The Tim Burton-helmed film has quite the star-studded cast. But in Dumbo, everyone is flesh-colored, warm and full of hope - especially the young girl Milly (Nico Parker) who takes the lost Dumbo under her wing. The plot will expand upon the classic story from the 1941 animated film about a circus elephant whose ears are so big he can fly. There, they bond with the circus's newest addition, a shy young elephant named Dumbo.

However, Dumbo's caretaker soon learns that Dreamland isn't what it appears to be.

Next up is the live-action remake of Dumbo, and the first trailer has arrived. Colin Farrell stars as soldier Holt Farrier, who returns home from war and is recruited by a circus owner (Danny DeVito) to care for a newborn elephant with oversized ears.
