I got a nice surprise today when I saw that Disney released the first teaser trailer for their live-action adaption of Dumbo. I watched it but I don’t think this was a great idea for a live-action film.
I love Disney and some of the most recent live-action films like Beauty And The Beast, Cinderella, and even the upcoming live-action Aladdin film all look really amazing but this one I’m not so sure about. I don’t think that having Tim Burton directing it was a great idea but the major thing I noticed is that one of the most beloved characters from the animated movie, Timothy Q. Mouse, was missing from the teaser trailer. I loved him in the original movie so it’s a disappoint for me to not see him in this trailer. I hope he appears in the film at some point and they’re just putting the finishing touches on his CGI.
With this movie releasing March 2019, I do feel like my opinion on it will change, but we will just to wait and see.
