Walt Disney Studios has announced that production has officially begun on their upcoming live-action DUMBO, a reimagining of Disney’s 1941 animated classic!

Directed by Tim Burton, the film stars Colin Farrell, Michael Keaton, Danny DeVito, Eva Green, and introducing Nico Parker and Finley Hobbins in their first film roles. Also starring Roshan Seth, DeObia Oparei, Sharon Rooney and Douglas Reith.

The live-action 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.

Burton directs from a script by Kruger. Katterli Frauenfelder, Derek Frey, Ehren Kruger and Justin Springer produce. Nigel Gostelow executive produces.

Burton’s behind-the-scenes team includes cinematographer Ben Davis, producer designer Rick Heinrichs, costume designer Colleen Atwood, editor Chris Lebenzon, and make-up designer Paul Gooch.

Utilizing state-of-the-art visual effects to portray Dumbo and many of his four-legged counterparts, Dumbo will be entirely filmed in England, both at Pinewood Studios and Cardington Studios.

Dumbo is slated to be released on March 29, 2018.
