Tim Burton's version of Dumbo has been revealed (and it's terrifying)

What's old is new Dumbo will be a live-action version of the 1941 animated Disney classic

Although it could change as production continues, the first look maquette gives us an idea of what the titular character will look like in the remake. But it is the Casey Jr. train and the concept art that tells us a lot about the world that Burton is creating. The project will be helmed by Tim Burton who has previously collaborated with the animation giant for his 2012 film Frankenweenie.

Dumbo is yet another upcoming installment in Disney's live-action remake canon, which was stared by Burton's own live-action take on Alice in Wonderland.

Tim Burtons live- action adaptation of the 1941 animated classic, "Dumbo", will open in theaters on March 29, 2019.

Director Jon Favreau is following up The Jungle Book with a live-action version of The Lion King, which had its opening scene previewed for D23 audiences this weekend.

And he'll be bringing his dark magic to bear on one of Disney's more emotional tales, this time with a brand new storyline.

Dumbo will be released in U.S. cinemas on 29 March 2019. The film also stars newcomers Nico Parker and Finley Hobbins, Colin Farrell in a leading role, and DeObia Oparei (Independence Day: Resurgence), Sharon Rooney (Two Doors Down), Roshan Seth (Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom), and Douglas Reith (Downton Abbey) in supporting roles. Drifting back to his old circus, he's soon convinced by his former boss (DeVito) to look after a newborn elephant with oversized ears, who Farrell's children soon discover can fly!

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.

The remake will also see the unbelievable talents of Roshan Seth, DeObia Oparei, Sharon Rooney, and Douglas Reith.
