The studio's had a surprisingly strong success rate so far on its live-action remakes (from Cinderella to The Jungle Book), but with such a production-line approach to churning back up every animated classic in its catalogue, exhaustion is bound to kick in sooner or later.

Michael Keaton, 65, is making his first film with the director since Batman Returns, which also starred Danny DeVito, 72.

Legendary director Tim Burton, who previously directed 2010's Alice in Wonderland for Disney, will bring Dumbo to life once again on the big screen.

The film's official synopsis states: '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.

Although Burton himself was not present for D23, he did send a video from behind the scenes of the Dumbo remake saying hello to the crowd. Roshan Seth (Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom), DeObia Oparei (Independence Day: Resurgence), Sharon Rooney (Two Doors Down) and Douglas Reith (Downton Abbey) have also been cast in supporting roles.

The news was reported during the studio's in-house expo D23, and the convention's Twitter feed also confirmed prior reports as to who would be starring in the film, and yes, it appears that Dumbo is going to be a Batman Returns reunion of sorts.

Nico Parker and Finley Hobbins have been cast as Holts children, who discover that Dumbo can fly. "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. Niki Caro's Mulan and Jon Favreau's The Lion King are a few other live-action translations to look forward to.

Dumbo is slated for release on March 29th, 2019.
