Disney revealed the synopsis: 'Disney's new live-action feature film Dumbo introduces Holt Farrier (Farrell), a former circus star who finds his life turned upside down when he returns from the war.

Directed by Tim Burton, whose previous work with Disney includes The Nightmare Before Christmas and Frankenweenie, Dumbo is about a sad circus elephant who gets picked on for having huge ears; also, his only friend is a mouse, he gets drunk and sees terrifying pink elephants, and Mama Dumbo sings maybe the saddest song in the Disney canon to her son, "Baby Mine".

The teaser gives a glimpse of the new plot, with the new movie featuring humans in contrast to the original, but it still contains the heartbreaking scene of Dumbo's mother locked up in a wagon, and the baby elephant being ridiculed for his huge ears. "This one begins with that and goes even further". "Literally, a chill went up the back of my neck", he told Entertainment Weekly Wednesday.

These design schemes are reflected on the interior as well, available with either AMR Lime or Galena Silver welting and stitching. According to the company, "this draws the closest visual link to the Aston Martin Racing team and the liveries of its race cars".

From Disney and visionary director Tim Burton, the all-new grand live-action adventure "Dumbo" expands on the beloved classic story where differences are celebrated, family is cherished and dreams take flight.

Dumbo's unique abilities attract Michael Keaton's skeezy entrepreneur V.A. Vandevere, who wants to take the elephant to his "Dreamland" - where he meets Eva Green's aerialist and likely discovers, if this film's droopy shadows and song style are to be believed, that Dreamland is more like Nightmareland.

Dumbo is scheduled to be released on Friday, 29 March 2019. "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".
