Numerous reports are coming in and informing me that Dumbo is going live! That’s right ladies and gentleman, Dumbo will once again hit the silver screen in a live action version of the 1941 animated classic. And just who will be the director to direct this classic? Tim Burton. Go ahead a scratch your head on that one, I know I am. Tim is known for his “creepy” side, and I just don’t see Dumbo as creepy, unless you count the “Pink Elephants on Parade” scene. But I digress. I AM interested to see how this will play out onto the silver screen.
Tim Burton is the mastermind behind “Alice in Wonderland” starring Johnny Depp at the Mad Hatter, and 1993’s “Nightmare Before Christmas”. Along with so many more movies.
Dumbo is still in development, and doesn’t have a release date yet. The script was written by Ehren Kruger, the mastermind behind “Transformers” and will be filmed with live actors and CGI.
Disney has had a huge hit recently with the live action movies such as “Maleficent”, the new release of “Cinderella”, and “Beauty and the Beast” getting ready for filming. Burton and Disney have a history together, I’m just wondering how this will all play out. But, you can be sure that as new information is released, I will be here giving you all the scoop!
What are your thoughts about Tim Burton directing the live action Dumbo movie?
