Disney has finally let us inside the tent with their first full-length trailer for the live-action Dumbo. The film, which is a remake of the classic 1941 movie of the same name, appears to be taking the same depressing tone of the original, especially with a glimpse of the heart-wrenching scene where Dumbo’s mother is taken away from him. Has anyone ever nearly cried from watching a trailer?
Speaking of the trailer, it looks like—fingers crossed—director Tim Burton didn't go... full Tim Burton with Dumbo. While there is a gloominess and eerie aspects that come across as very Burton-esque, none of the visuals lead us to believe that he's going on a WTF-fest like he did with Alice in Wonderland. Of course, there is a possibility that he may go all the way in his bag for the "Pink Elephant Parade" scene, which there is a snippet of at the 1:30 mark.
Check out the trailer above. Dumbo will be out in theaters on on March 29, 2019.
