Tim Burton’s live action take on the classic Disney animated tale of the little flying elephant Dumbo is set for a 2019 release, and here’s our first proper look at it.

This version will see circus owner Max Medici (Danny DeVito) enlist his 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 have everybody making fun of the poor little guy. But then they discover that little Dumbo can fly…

As well as a gorgeous wee elephant, Dumbo stars Eva Green, Colin Farrell, Michael Keaton, Danny DeVito and Alan Arkin.

Dumbo will be flapping its way into Australian cinemas on March 28.
