Disney's Live-Action Dumbo Synopsis & Cast Revealed as Filming Begins

Tim Burton

Making the announcement at the D23 Expo - the exposition convention for The Official Disney Fan Club - Disney confirmed the Tim Burton movie would also star Eva Green (Casino Royale) alongside newcomers Nico Parker and Finley Hobbins.

Production for Disney's newest live-action film, Dumbo, is now underway, and director Tim Burton is now in England shooting the film.

"Dumbo was always one of my favourite Disney films". Disney made no announcement if the remake would contain songs, but it's worth baring in mind the director didn't include any musical numbers in his Alice in Wonderland remake.

Colin Farrell will play the lead role of Holt Farrier, a former circus performer who is struggling to recover from his experience as a war veteran.

To celebrate, Disney released a photo on Saturday of superstar director Tim Burton on set. The cast also includes Roshan Seth, DeObia Oparei, Sharon Rooney and Douglas Reith.

Israel says to reopen Al Aqsa Mosque on Sunday
More than 300 Palestinians have lost their lives at the hands of Israeli forces since October 2015, when the tensions intensified. Jaffa Gate, heavily used by tourists and near the Old City's Jewish Quarter, was open but with a heavy police presence.


The film's cast, characters, and release date were confirmed during today's D23 panel, along with the first image; you can find all of that information below.

Danny DeVito, who played the Penguin in Burton's 1992 film Batman Returns, will play Max Medici, the owner of the small circus at the heart of the film.

Burton recorded the video from inside Casey Jr, the iconic train from the original movie.

Burton, writer Ehren Kruger (the Transformers sequels), and producer Justin Springer (TRON: Legacy) are looking to "add a unique family story that parallels Dumbo's journey" and pad out the 1941 film's hour-long runtime with new material that "deepens the circus aspect of the story". A life-size 3D model of the big-eared, blue-eyed elephant was showcased at the event to give an idea of what the titular hero would look like in the live-action film.

Dumbo will soar into cinemas in March 2019.
