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 United States on 29 March 2019.

Disney has recently announced a slew of live-action remakes of their animated classics, including a retelling of 101 Dalmations villainess Cruella De Ville, starring Emma Stone. Also teaming up with Burton here, for the first time, is Colin Farrell in a leading role.

The news was swiftly followed by an official press release from Disney, which included the following plot synopsis: Dumbo introduces Holt Farrier (Farrell), a former circus star who finds his life turned upside down when he returns from the war. The cast also includes Roshan Seth, DeObia Oparei, Sharon Rooney and Douglas Reith.

Audiences at D23 got to see a bit of Dumbo himself, via a model for the elephant, but the first image officially released to the public features the director, with Burton pictured on the Casey Jr. train from the original movie. Circus owner Max Medici (DeVito) enlists Holt to care for a newborn elephant whose oversized ears make him a laughingstock in an already struggling circus. "Casey Junior" is even the name of a song in the 1941 version of Dumbo's story, though there has yet to be any indication that Burton's live-action remake will carryover those musical elements. Michael Keaton plays the persuasive entrepreneur V.A. Vandevere and Eva Green is an aerial artist named Colette Marchant.
