    I don't know what to think of this. Is it a good idea? I just don't know.

    Dumbo is such a dark film, Tim Burton is perfect for it. It’ll be interesting to see if they change the story though - Dumbo gets drunk and has beer fear in the morning when he finds himself up tree

    Hardly Disney when you think about it, and hard to imagine Disney would approve that for an animation movie nowadays, let alone a live action remake.

    But they can’t cut the March of the pink elephants - it’s so iconic.

    Just no. He'll ruin it. He should go back to original weird films. His mainstream blockbusters are almost all flawed.

    Dumbo is dark A F and it's not like Burton is a stranger to making films for young audiences so I can see why Disney went with him.

    I like Tim Burton's work overall but his adaptations are hit (Alice....) and miss (Charlie...). I think it will be a decent hit regardless but he'd be doing himself a favour by not including Johnny Depp to the cast.

    This actually looks pretty good - and looks like they haven’t cut the pink elephants

    The CGI is really either hit or complete miss in this one it seems.
