Dumbo is the 2019 American fantasy adventure film directed by Tim Burton, with a screenplay written by Ehren Kruger. It is inspired by Walt Disney‘s 1941 animated film of the same name, itself 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. It is one of several animated classics that Disney announced would be getting a live-action treatment in 2019, including Aladdin and The Lion King.
The film premiered in Los Angeles on March 11, 2019, and is scheduled to be released in the United States on March 29.
