‘Dumbo’ Trailer: You’ll Believe an Elephant Can Fly

The last time Tim Burton teamed up with Disney, it resulted in the hit adaptation of Alice in Wonderland. Now he’s tackling another remake of one of the studio’s animated classic that fits perfectly with the director’s usual circus aesthetic tendencies. Dumbo adapts the Disney animated classic from 1941, turning the barely one-hour circus adventure into a feature length story starring Colin Farrell, Michael Keaton, Danny DeVito, Eva Green and an adorable flying elephant with baby blue eyes. A n...

From the Set: Dumbo Cast Talks Interacting with the Flying Elephant

BEGIN SLIDESHOW From the set: Dumbo cast talks interacting with the flying elephant For every live-action remake of a Disney movie there’s at least one tiny wrinkle for those on set. For Beauty and the Beast it was looking at Dan Stevens in giant grey pajamas and imagining he’s a beast, for The Jungle Book it was on Neel Sethi to imagine he was surrounded by animals in an exotic jungle. With Tim Burton’s upcoming Dumbo remake the cast all had the same challenge, imagine a baby elephant ri...

Colin Farrell on ‘Dumbo’ and Working His Dream Gig With Tim Burton [Set Visit Interview]

Colin Farrell is flying high. Well, maybe not as high as an elephant with giant ears, but pretty close — the Widows actor finally got to collaborate with one of his longtime favorite filmmakers, Tim Burton, for Dumbo, the live-action adaptation of the beloved 1941 animated film about a clumsy elephant that learns he has a special ability that turns him into a circus sensation. It’s the perfect kind of fairy tale adventure that would attract Farrell, who as of late has shown a preference for off...

From The Set: How the New Dumbo Differs from the Original Movie

BEGIN SLIDESHOW From the Set: How the new Dumbo differs from the original movie As far as live-action remakes of classic Disney movies go, some of them have an easier path than others. The likes of Beauty and the Beast and The Lion King have full length movies as their blue prints, but the upcoming Dumbo didn’t have the luxury. Released in 1941, the original Dumbo clocks in at 64 minutes long and features very little speaking roles for humans. Don’t worry though, director Tim Burton has e...

‘The Nutcracker and the Four Realms’ Review: An Uneven but Delightfully Oddball Fairy Tale Adventure

Whatever algorithm it is through which modern Disney movies are made (young women whose smarts are demonstrated by a penchant for tinkering, a missing parent, dubious authority figures, a cast peppered with recognizable stars), it’s hit a high point with The Nutcracker and the Four Realms. Though the film occasionally descends into the same CGI soup that made the recent Beauty and the Beast so baffling, it manages to keep a firmer grip on reality — which means that its flights into fancy are th...
