Dumbo production underway, film to release in March 2019

An adaptation of the 1941 animated classic of the same name, featuring a massive-eared elephant, Dumbo brings together director Burton with a handful of his favorite actors.

A first look at Dumbo the elephant in Tim Burton's live-action remake has been revealed at D23, with a photo hitting the web.

Production has just begin on the film and the video featured footage from the set, which, showed off a circus.

For all the ingenuity fans hope is still locked inside of Tim Burton, somewhere, his collaboration with the studio on Alice in Wonderland didn't end particularly well.

Director Jon Favreau is following up The Jungle Book with a live-action version of The Lion King, which had its opening scene previewed for D23 audiences this weekend. The 1941 animated Disney classic won an Academy Award for best musical score and was also nominated for best original song for 'Baby Mine'. Roshan Seth, DeObia Oparei, Sharon Rooney, Douglas Reith, and Katterli Frauenfelder also join.

Filming for the remake is now taking place in England, at Pinewood Studios and Cardington Studios, and "Dumbo" will be released in cinemas on March 29, 2019.

Farrell will be playing a former circus star, who returns from war a shell of his old self.

Danny DeVito will play the circus' owner Max Medici, while Michael Keaton is V.A. Vandevere, the enigmatic entrepreneur who swoops in on the promise he'll make Dumbo a star, alongside aerial artist Colette Marchant, played by Eva Green.

Nico Parker and Finley Hobbins have been cast as Holts children, who discover that Dumbo can fly. Instead, Disney officially confirmed him for a role in the live-action Aladdin remake with Naomi Scott as Jasmine and Mena Massoud as the titular street rat.
