A new trailer was just released from Tim Burton’s all-new live-action DUMBO that opens in theatres everywhere March 29th, 2019 and I’m a wreck now.
A FEW REASONS WHY:
1. Plain and simple, the story of Dumbo just speaks to me: a Mamas love is like no other. Also, whether you have something about you that is different than everyone else, it’s okay, you are magic. You can soar to new heights, you just have to believe in yourself, you can do anything you put your mind to.
2. We are HUGE Tim Burton fans.
3. (Deep breath here) Growing up for me, I had very large ears, and was teased VERY badly for them and was called Dumbo A LOT. I guess now that I’ve exposed this part of my life, I’ll share more about my experience in a future Dumbo post.
4. My son, who is on the Autism Spectrum, is obsessed with the Baby Mine song from the animated 1941 Dumbo film, he sleeps with this song on repeat at night.
ABOUT THE MOVIE:
From Disney and visionary director Tim Burton, the all-new grand live-action adventure DUMBO expands on the beloved classic story where differences are celebrated, family is cherished and dreams take flight. Circus owner Max Medici (Danny DeVito) enlists former star Holt Farrier (Colin Farrell) and his children Milly (Nico Parker) and Joe (Finley Hobbins) to care for a newborn elephant whose oversized ears make him a laughingstock in an already struggling circus. But when they discover that Dumbo can fly, the circus makes an incredible comeback, attracting persuasive entrepreneur V.A. Vandevere (Michael Keaton), who recruits the peculiar pachyderm for his newest, larger-than-life entertainment venture, Dreamland. Dumbo soars to new heights alongside a charming and spectacular aerial artist, Colette Marchant (Eva Green), until Holt learns that beneath its shiny veneer, Dreamland is full of dark secrets.
Now that I’m officially crying, I’d love to spread the MAGIC and share the trailer with you, friend!
