First look at Tim Burton's live-action remake of 'Dumbo'

There's no stopping the juggernaut that is Disney's live-action remakes and Tim Burton is in the driving seat for one of them, having been confirmed as the director of Dumbo, which will be released in the USA on 29 March 2019.

"Dumbo was always one of my favorite Disney films", stated Burton. Also teaming up with Burton here, for the first time, is Colin Farrell in a leading role.

Walt Disney's classic animated tale Dumbo originally opened on October 23, 1941, before going on to win an Oscar for best scoring of a musical picture along with its nomination for best original song for "Baby Mine".

Burton recorded the video from inside Casey Jr, the iconic train from the original movie.

Disney also revealed a maquette used to model the CGI Dumbo for the live-action film at the event on Saturday.

Defence spokesman Richard Marles says the training and embedding of defence force members is uncontroversial. State and federal governments are working together on recommendations from the coroner's report.

All four of the aforementioned actors are now confirmed for the Dumbo cast, along with young newcomers Nico Parker and Finley Hobbins, as well as Roshan Seth (Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom), DeObia Oparei (Independence Day: Resurgence), Sharon Rooney (Two Doors Down) and Douglas Reith (Downton Abbey) in supporting roles. Ehren Kruger (The Ring, Ghost in the Shell) wrote the screenplay and produces along with Katterli Frauenfelder, Derek Frey, and Justin Springer.

The Plot: Disney's new live-action feature film Dumbo introduces Holt Farrier (Farrell), a former circus star who finds his life turned upside down when he returns from the war.

It's set for a distant March 29, 2019 release.

Danny DeVito will play the circus' owner Max Medici, while Michael Keaton is V.A. Vandevere, the enigmatic entrepreneur who swoops in on the promise he'll make Dumbo a star, alongside aerial artist Colette Marchant, played by Eva Green.
