Disney’s Dumbo is the latest animated classic to get the live action remake treatment.
The original 1941 film tells the endearing story of a baby circus elephant. Ridiculed since birth for his over-sized ears, Dumbo learns to fly with the help of a magic feather and a mouse to become a big top sensation.
Now the cartoon is to be reworked by Transformers: Age of Extinction screenwriter Ehren Kruger, who will also co-produce with Justin Springer.
Reports suggest that the fresh take will adapt from the first movie but add a family plotline that parallels with Dumbo’s own.
Due to the current advanced state of CG technology, a flying elephant could well feature in the remake – something that has to be worth a watch.Reuse content
