I’ve already got tears in my eyes.
With just a few bars of “Baby Mine” I felt all the emotions. Disney has just released Live Action Dumbo new photos and trailer, and I am so ready for March 2019 to get here.
You see, the quintessential song from the original Dumbo movie is back once again. It’s a song that is so personal to me, one that brings up a ridiculous amount of memories.
There were the moments deep in the night when I sang this song to calm my little girl.
But there was also the time I stood in a hospital hallway just minutes after my grandfather passed away. The floor was dedicated to cancer patients. As my grandmother, uncle, and I stood grieving and crying, I realized there was a young child in the room next door. A child who likely heard everything that had happened. A child who had cancer. She was watching Dumbo on television and right at that moment, I heard “Baby Mine”.
I never saw her face, but I will never forget that moment, and how scared she might have been.
Months later I would lose someone else I loved. My own mother.
Dumbo brings out all the emotions – when he’s separated from Mama Jumbo most especially for me.
I expect a lot from Tim Burton with Disney’s new Live Action Dumbo and could already feel the emotion when I saw the released photographs below (and trailer)…
Live Action Dumbo New Photos Released
From Disney and visionary director Tim Burton, the all-new grand live-action adventure “Dumbo” expands on the beloved classic story where differences are celebrated, family is cherished and dreams take flight.
Circus owner Max Medici (Danny DeVito) enlists 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 make him a laughingstock in an already struggling circus.
But when they discover that Dumbo can fly, the circus makes an incredible comeback, attracting persuasive entrepreneur V.A. Vandevere (Michael Keaton), who recruits the peculiar pachyderm for his newest, larger-than-life entertainment venture, Dreamland. Dumbo soars to new heights alongside a charming and spectacular aerial artist, Colette Marchant (Eva Green), until Holt learns that beneath its shiny veneer, Dreamland is full of dark secrets.
This photograph reminds of last summer at D23 during the Disney Marvel Studios Lucasfilm Live Action Films Update! Dumbo was wheeled out on stage for us to catch a glimpse. Unbelievable and we learned a little more about the film – be sure to read that post!
Directed by Tim Burton (“Alice in Wonderland,” “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory”) from a screenplay by Ehren Kruger (“Ophelia,” “Dream House”), and produced by Justin Springer (“TRON: Legacy”), Kruger, Katterli Frauenfelder (“Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children,” “Big Eyes”) and Derek Frey (“Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children,” “Frankenweenie”), “Dumbo” flies into theaters on March 29, 2019.
