Walt Disney's classic animated tale Dumbo, which opened October 23, 1941, won an Oscar for best scoring of a musical picture and was nominated for best original song for "Baby Mine".
Disney's official description is as follows: "Holt Farrier (Farrell) is a former circus star who finds his life turned upside down when he returns from the war". It was Burton's own live-action Alice in Wonderland adaptation (which was released in 2010) that kicked off the current trend of the Mouse House re-making its animated classics in live-action.
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.

As a partial measure, it asked internet companies to block access to 11 addresses offering the web version of Telegram. Police said the man had no links to militant groups but had been radicalised through material he read on Telegram.
Now, Disney has finally announced the details of its latest live-action update during a panel at D23 Expo, including the film's cast, characters, and release date.
Although Burton himself was not present for D23, he did send a video from behind the scenes of the Dumbo remake saying hello to the crowd.
Eva Green (Mrs. Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children) is playing a French trapeze artist named Colette who is employed by the movie's villain. Roshan Seth (Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom), DeObia Oparei (Independence Day: Resurgence), Sharon Rooney (Two Doors Down) and Douglas Reith (Downton Abbey) have also been cast in supporting roles. But it is the Casey Jr. train and the concept art that tells us a lot about the world that Burton is creating. The live-action version, which will be shot at Pinewood Studios and Cardington Studios in England, will arrive on March 29, 2019. Niki Caro's Mulan and Jon Favreau's The Lion King are a few other live-action translations to look forward to.
