Disney has recently announced a slew of live-action remakes of their animated classics, including a retelling of 101 Dalmations villainess Cruella De Ville, starring Emma Stone.

The all-star cast includes Golden Globe winner Colin Farrell, Golden Globe winner Michael Keaton, Emmy and Golden Globe winner Danny DeVito, BAFTA Award winner and Golden Globe nominee Eva Green, and introduces Nico Parker and Finley Hobbins. Drifting back to his old circus, he's soon convinced by his former boss (DeVito) to look after a newborn elephant with oversized ears, who Farrell's children soon discover can fly!
The live-action cast is rounded out by Roshan Seth, DeObia Oparei, Sharon Rooney, and Douglas Reith. The project is expected to use a mixture of CG and live-action elements to capture a new take on the story, and considering Burton's involvement, we know the end result will at least be a visually distinct piece of work. But that's not all, Disney also released a synopsis for the film...
Farrier's children (Parker and Hobbins) find out that the baby has flying powers, and entrepreneur VA Vandevere (Keaton) and aerial artist Colette Marchant (Green) arrive on the scene to make Dumbo a star. The film is scheduled to be shot entirely in England as is slated to release on 29 March 2019.
