Dumbo is an upcoming American fantasy adventure film directed by Tim Burton and written by Ehren Kruger. It is loosely inspired by Walt Disney's 1941 animated film of the same name, which, in turn, was based on the novel by Helen Aberson and Harold Pearl. The film stars Colin Farrell, Michael Keaton, Danny DeVito, Eva Green, and Alan Arkin.
Plans of a live-action Dumbo remake were announced in 2014 and Burton was confirmed as director in March 2015. Much of the cast signed on in March 2017 and principal photography began in July of that year in the United Kingdom, lasting until November.
The film is scheduled to be released in the United States on March 29, 2019. It will be released in Real D 3D and Dolby Cinema.
