Production is officially underway on Walt Disney Studios’ live-action reimagining of their 1941 animated classic “Dumbo”.
Newcomers Nico Parker and Finley Hobbins lead a cast that includes Colin Farrell, Michael Keaton, Danny DeVito, Eva Green, Roshan Seth, DeObia Oparei, Sharon Rooney and Douglas Reith.
The story begins with 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 laughing stock 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 slated for release on March 29th 2019.
