Live Action Dumbo Movie

Yes! There is going to be a live action Dumbo remake.

Pretty strange decision and there seemed to be a lot of upcoming live action Disney Films but i'm hoping this will lead to a live action Gargoyles movie.

Disney is betting that the man to make you believe an elephant can fly is Tim Burton.

The filmmaker behind “Pee Wee’s Big Adventure,” “Batman,” “Big Eyes” and “Alice in Wonderland” will direct Disney’s coming live-action remake of “Dumbo,” Walt Disney Pictures president of production Sean Bailey said.

“Dumbo,” which is still in development and doesn’t have a release date, is one of a number of new films based on Disney animated classics that the studio has in the works, including this week’s “Cinderella,” next year’s “The Jungle Book” and “Alice in Wonderland: Through the Looking Glass,” and a new “Beauty and the Beast” expected in 2017.

Disney is making a whole lot of live-action adaptations of their animated movies, it's seems a bit saturated and might loose it's interest real quick.

Maybe a haunted mansion movie that's a little more inspired than the previous one? Don't get me wrong, I love that one, but I can think of a lot of cool ideas for a HM movie.

Yeah, I've gotta wonder how long this trend will last once the novelty wears off. I don't have much interest in Cinderella, but I do get the appeal. But it mostly feels like a "look what we can do now!" kind of thing to me, anyway.

But I've been wrong before!

I think Beuty and the Beast is the one I'm. Ost interested in, especially since how much the Disney's first movie had so much inspiration from the Jean Cocteau movie, although there is already a adaptation of Cocteau's movie. It's still interesting to see how Disney will retackle the story.

Wut..? Um. So that either needs to be incredibly well done or will probably bomb very easily. Disney must be bored.

What they need to do is make more movies based on their rides. No, hear me out... picture this: the movie loosely based on the Small Wonder ride themes. But as a horror.

I don't like it when animals have to act. I feel like it's another form of abuse. Let the animals alone. They don't understand entertainment! They just want food.

Dont worry there wont be any animals. It will be all CG. How the hell you can cal it live action without something actually being real? Beats the hell out of me but Disney will do it.

Yeah, I figured CGI animals (really, how else would you make a real elephant calf fly? lol not to mention make the mother interact similarly as the cartoon) and I guess the usual real people. Maybe "live audience" is a better term.

Oh. Whew! I think they should just go all out CG in that case. I mean, might as well, right? *shrugs*

You saw The Nostalgia Critic's review of the Eddie Murphy movie too, huh?

I think the term your looking for is "live-action hybrid".

And y'know, I used to like Tim Burton. Quite a lot. And I've still got a lot of fondness for his early work. Maybe it's nostalgia, maybe the shine just came off the apple, I dunno. But I still feel like his late '80s/early '90s work holds up pretty well. But lately... man. His whole New Disney Era is bringing out the absolute worst in him, creatively.
Did you see Big Eyes? That was pretty good.

Oh crap, I just realized how messed up the Pink Elephant song is going to be with Burton behind the camera.

Not just that song, but Burton doing a circus themed movie...

It's been a while since there has been news about this, but yesterday it was reported that Will Smith is in early talks to play a father of some children who befriend Dumbo.

http://ew.com/movies/2017/01/11/will...y-live-action/

Also, Tom Hanks has reportedly been offered to play a villain in the film. That would certainly be a departure from the characters he usually plays. However, he has another project that would potentially prevent him from starring in it.

Eva Green has been cast as a trapeze artist.

http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/hea...n-dumbo-984270

Danny Devito joined the film as a ringleader.

http://deadline.com/2017/03/danny-de...ey-1202039965/

Will Smith declined the role of the father with two children and Disney got Colin Farrell to play the character instead.

http://deadline.com/2017/03/colin-fa...to-1202051074/

Michael Keaton is now in talks to play the film's villain.

Keaton confirmed on Good Morning America that he's playing the villain. This will mark the first time in 25 years that he will be working alongside Tim Burton and Danny DeVito since Batman Returns.
