First Behind the Scenes featurette for Burtons Dumbo

Disney’s live-action Dumbo film is just around the corner and Tim Burton is bringing the classic to life with a sensational cast including Colin Farrell, Michael Keaton, Eva Green and Danny DeVito.

Funnily enough DeVito is playing a ringmaster for the second time for Burton he was first under the big top in Big Fish back in 2003, I was kind of hoping the character would be the same to give Big Fish a nice throw back but sadly the names are different.

Take a look at the featurette below

Circus owner Max Medici (Danny DeVito) enlists former star Holt Farrier (Colin Farrell) and his children Milly (Nico Parker) and Joe (Finley Hobbins) to care for a newborn elephant whose oversized ears make him a laughingstock in an already struggling circus. But when they discover that Dumbo can fly, the circus makes an incredible comeback, attracting persuasive entrepreneur V.A. Vandevere (Michael Keaton), who recruits the peculiar pachyderm for his newest, larger-than-life entertainment venture, Dreamland. Dumbo soars to new heights alongside a charming and spectacular aerial artist, Colette Marchant (Eva Green), until Holt learns that beneath its shiny veneer, Dreamland is full of dark secrets.

Disney’s Dumbo opens in Australia on March 28, you can also see the trailer here
