LOL Can't wait to see that circus scene, clowns will look more terrifying than they were in the original film with this guy in charge.

Light hearted I wouldn't exactly call this film, that mother reunion scene would freakin get me to cry each time I saw it.

Not to mention this film was what got me afraid of clowns in the first place

I seriously don't get the point of remaking Disney's classics unless they have a new vision or something to tell.

When it works, you get the Jungle Book.

When you have an idea like Maleficent, I respect it, even if I personally don't like it.

When you're desperate for cash, you get Beauty and the Beast (2017). Based on the description, I see that'll be the case with Dumbo.
"It's only natural for living creatures to fight to protect their own lives. But what makes us human is that we fight for others. But who do you fight for? How hard must you fight...? That's the true measure of what human life is worth. Even when the battle's over, and the bonds that connect us are severed... We always return... Time and time again." -Phoenix Wright

Disney shared this photo of Burton on the set of the movie.

Burton had this to say about what he's bringing to the film:

"'Dumbo' was always one of my favorite Disney films," said Burton. "We're trying to give it the same heart, feeling and emotion that we all loved about the original."
I find that hard to believe because most of his films are dark and twisted. Not many of them have so much a heart, feeling and emotion.

I actually do believe him considering his age, his history working as an animator at Disney, etc. And a number of his older work did have a lot of heart it was just in a strange way but it was there.

But just because you love something from way back when, or was an inspiration doesn't mean it's immediately evident in your work, or be there at all depending on the project.

My gripe is more that for me Burton hasn't made anything worth watching in over a decade and hasn't been a consistent director in over 20 years.

This feels like a total cash grab but I know I'll end up seeing it anyway.

Although I really would like to see a live action reboot of The Hunchback of Notre Dame based on the stage musical. I would like the gargoyles to be in it but more toned down (because God, they were annoying in the movie) and just like the American stage musical, more elements of the book would be amazing.
Besides, there's been at least one adaptation of that book every decade, the most recent one being in 1999 so we're overdue.
