Disney nabs director Tim Burton for its live-action Dumbo movie, where they’ll attempt to make a new generation of fans believe an elephant can fly.
The Alice in Wonderland director has landed the live-action remake of Dumbo, which Disney plans on including in their nearly dozen upcoming live-action classic film adaptations.
Tim Burton is a solid choice to helm the project, as his Alice in Wonderland live-action adaptation took in over $1 billion worldwide for the studio. Walt Disney Pictures president of production Sean Bailey said that Dumbo doesn’t have a release date set yet, but it will be a combination of CGI and live-action actors.
Dumbo seems like one of the more difficult Disney films to adapt to live-action, but Tim Burton did amazing things with Alice in Wonderland, and Burton has experience with circus themes, as he included a circus scene in his Batman Returns film.
Sean Bailey said that the plan for Dumbo will be that the story takes place in a “big world,” and fans should expect to see a lot more than the single storyline of Dumbo learning to fly.
Dumbo is yet another live-action film adaptation of a Disney classic, which includes Disney’s live-action Beauty and the Beast, starring Emma Watson, Cinderella, and The Jungle Book.
Tim Burton can be a masterful director, and while the story is certainly one of the more difficult live-action adaptations, we’re definitely curious to see what his vision will look like with a flying elephant at the center of his film.
