Director Tim Burton visits Disneyland to preview Disney’s “Dumbo”

Disney’s all-new, live-action adventure “Dumbo” is currently previewing at Disneyland, Walt Disney World, and on the high seas aboard the Disney Cruise Line fleet of ships. Yesterday Director Tim Burton, who helms Disney’s all-new, live-action adventure “Dumbo,” surprised Guests at Disneyland with a special visit.

Burton visited the Dumbo attraction in Fantasyland, introduced a sneak peek of the movie at the Main Street Opera House in Town Square, and signed autographs while in the park. (click to embiggen)

Looks like a lot of fun was had by all. We’re off to Disney’s Hollywood Studios today to check out the “Dumbo” preview ourselves.

In the meantime you can see a new clip from the movie entitled “what is that?”

About the film:

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. Circus owner Max Medici (Danny DeVito) enlists former star Holt Farrier (Colin Farrell) and his children Milly (Nico Parker) and Joe (Finley Hobbins) to care for a newborn elephant whose oversized ears make him a laughingstock in an already struggling circus. But when they discover that Dumbo can fly, the circus makes an incredible comeback, attracting persuasive entrepreneur V.A. Vandevere (Michael Keaton), who recruits the peculiar pachyderm for his newest, larger-than-life entertainment venture, Dreamland. 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.

Directed by Tim Burton (“Alice in Wonderland,” “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory”) from a screenplay by Ehren Kruger (“Ophelia,” “Dream House”), and produced by Justin Springer (“TRON: Legacy”), Kruger, Katterli Frauenfelder (“Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children,” “Big Eyes”) and Derek Frey (“Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children,” “Frankenweenie”), “Dumbo” flies into theaters on March 29, 2019.

  1. I can’t wait for this movie to come out. The live-action Disney films have all been pretty great. I personally think Cinderella might be the best of them all to this point. Do you have a favorite of the ones that have come out so far?
