Along with the first look at Will Smith’s blue genie in “Aladdin,” Disney also used Grammy Awards night to unveil a new TV trailer for their live-action “Dumbo” movie.
Whereas “Aladdin” was basically all new footage, this is more of a mix of existing and new clips from the various trailers released so far but also has a more upbeat tone that those clips.
Tim Burton helms the new take in which circus owner Max Medici (Danny DeVito) enlists former star Holt Farrier (Colin Farrell) and his children Milly (Nico Parker) and Joe (Finley Hobbins) to care for a newborn elephant whose oversized ears make him a laughing stock in an already struggling circus.
But when they discover that Dumbo can fly, the circus makes an incredible comeback, attracting persuasive entrepreneur V.A. Vandevere (Michael Keaton), who recruits the peculiar pachyderm for his newest venture Dreamland. Eva Green and Alan Arkin co-star in the film opening March 29th.
