Tim Burton’s next project is a remake of the Disney classic Dumbo. Tim Burton’s version will add his classic twist to it.
Tim Burton’s 2019 remake will be loosely based on the original. There will be a cast of entirely new characters.
The cast so far:
Danny DeVito – will play the role of Max Medici, a circus owner and ringmaster.
Colin Ferrell – will play Holt Farrier, a war veteran hired by a circus owner to care for a young elephant who doesn’t quite fit in.
Eva Green – portrays Colette Marchant, one of the circus performers.
Michael Keaton – is V. A. Vandemere, an entrepreneur who acquires Medici’s circus and exploits Dumbo for profit.
Alan Arkin and Joseph Gatt also have roles in the film.
Tim Burton’s version will focus on the human circus star and his family who is hired to take care of Dumbo. His children accidentally discover Dumbo’s large ears and his ability to fly.
Dumbo is scheduled for release March 29, 2019.
