As we’ve recently shared the teaser trailer for the upcoming “Mary Poppins Returns” and the full-on trailer for “Christopher Robin”, I guess I should not have been surprised to find the first teaser for Disney’s “Dumbo” being released just a short time ago. The film is a new take on the classic character from the animated feature that bears the same name and comes to us care of the imagination of the great Tim Burton. Let’s take a look shall we?
The Premise: Holt was once a circus star, but he went off to war and when he returned it had terribly altered him. Circus owner Max Medici hires him to take care of Dumbo, a newborn elephant whose oversized ears make him the laughing stock of the struggling circus troupe. But when Holt’s children discover that Dumbo can fly, silver-tongued entrepreneur V.A. Vandevere, and aerial artist Colette Marchant swoop in to make the little elephant a star.

Piercing Ken Thoughts: Since this is only a teaser clip, and since we have a considerable amount of time before the films release I am going to hold back on any extended opinion for the time being. I am intrigued that one of the most beloved Disney classics is getting a live-action film but in a good way. The classics all bring back fond memories for me and now they can work their magic on our families in the now. Do you agree? Let me know down below but hold the larger trailer opinion until the full one gets released when it does.
