The CGI elephant actually flies in Disney’s first teaser trailer for its live-action “Dumbo,” released on Wednesday.
The flight takes place at the very end of the 80 seconds of footage after the teaser promises, “A beloved tale will take you to new heights.”
“Dumbo,” directed by Tim Burton and loosely inspired by the 1941 animated film, stars Danny DeVito as the owner of a struggling circus. He 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.
“We’re all family here, no matter how small,” Parker tells the sad-eyed elephant. (RTRS)
