Will Burton find similar success with his next Disney tentpole, "Dumbo"?

Disney fans finally have a glimpse at a beloved flying elephant in live action. Dumbo is adorable and will likely be a heart-breaker when the movie arrives next year. It's also a surprising departure for Burton, whose name has become synonymous with a Gothic flair and kabuki-mask faces.

The live-action Dumbo reworks the tale of the bullied elephant with big ears into a story of a single father (Colin Farrell) and his two children who work at a traveling circus run by Max Medici (Danny Devito, who has apparently kept his ringmaster costume since Big Fish). Directed by Tim Burton, the teaser of Dumbo showcases a magical world of a circus where dreams take flight.

The film stars Colin Farrell, Danny DeVito, Eva Green and Michael Keaton, plus newcomers Finley Hobbins and Nico Parker.

However, Dumbo's caretaker soon learns that Dreamland isn't what it appears to be.

"Dumbo" flies into theaters on March 29, 2019.

The last time Tim Burton reimagined an iconic Disney animated film as a live-action spectacle, it was the 2010 adaptation of "Alice in Wonderland", which earned over $1 million at the global box office.

Dumbo's unique abilities attract Michael Keaton's skeezy entrepreneur V.A. Vandevere, who wants to take the elephant to his "Dreamland" - where he meets Eva Green's aerialist and likely discovers, if this film's droopy shadows and song style are to be believed, that Dreamland is more like Nightmareland.
