When Disney first announced a live-action version of its 1941 animated classic, Dumbo, plenty of people were skeptical.
The original is pretty perfect.
But with the new trailer that's just dropped, it's looking like it could potentially live up to the original.
In the 1941 film, the newborn Dumbo becomes the butt of jokes because of his enormous ears. When some boys taunt him, his enraged mother loses her temper and attacks them. She is declared mad and locked in a cage, leaving Dumbo alone.
Too clumsy to be featured in the circus elephant act, he is made into a clown instead. Dumbo's only friend in this miserable existence is a mouse named Timothy, who discovers Dumbo can fly and stages an elaborate stunt at a circus performance one night to prove it. Dumbo becomes the star of the circus and is reunited with his mother.
Dumbo will be released March 28, 2019.
